The Hunt is Over

Erin & Jordan's wedding day started out with the groomsmen shooting skeet at a friends blind. One by one the men took up rifles and shotguns to hit the flying targets.Click to enlarge At the same time the Erin was getting reception decor setup out at KC Memory Lane Event Center. Erin's Aunt arranged all of the flowers for the day and the gladiolas matched the bridesmaid dresses perfectly. With both Erin and Jordan being very active outdoor enthusiasts it was fitting that they had camo fabric under flower arrangements and even Axis deer pelts and antlers on the guestbook table and groom's cake tables. Jordan's cake proclaimed Click to enlarge"The Hunt is Over". After their lovely fountainside ceremony and family photos we wandered the grounds taking photos of just them. With 300 guests it took a while to visit each table but they made sure to see everyone before going on to cut the cakes.Room Toast, click to enlarge After a whirlwind set of toasts, and a poolside tossing of the bouquet and garter they headed off in a hail of bubbles...after unwrapping their truck and trailed by freon tanks. Happy Trails Jordan & Erin!

Love You

Love You Photo, click to enlargeAt each wedding we photograph we try to incorporate something fun and creative. While doing pre-ceremony formal photos this past weekend one of the bridesmaids at Al & Danielle's wedding came up with the idea to spell out the word LOVE with the position of their bodies as a fun shot. The ladies bent and twisted contorting their bodies to spell out the word LOVE trying not to laugh or fall. When it was time for the guys turn I got the idea to try and do the same thing with the guys spelling the word you. Danielle and the girls didnt know about this portion so I think they'll be pleasantly surprised. I wanted set the two photos side-by-side to spell out the phrase LOVE YOU. I think it came out pretty good.
So, whether like this we use the wedding party or whether we use details and items from the decor. Each wedding is a unique reflection of the bride and groom and our photos highlight that special something.

Lunar Eclipse

Lunar Eclipse, click to enlargeOne on the benefits of getting up early. Last weekend, we were in Marble Falls to photograph the Sowell wedding. Was able to capture this Lunar Eclipse @ 6:12 AM 6/26/2010. To get the detail in the moon (craters etc) use a "daylight" exposure - after all the moon is just a big rock - lit buy the sun. Often new photographers will "over expose" and end up with just a white circle... Their cameras meter for the space around the moon - This was ISO 200 on a tripod with a 400 mm lens 1/15 sec at f5.6
