A thousand lights

October 10, 2015

End of the wedding, Great recpetion lights.
Dancing just finished and almost all the guests have left, Asked the bride if she would like to get a last picture that i have in mind, she agreed and i ran to get the groom from their room.

Snapped 4-5 shots and this one won :)

24mm · f/3.2 · 1/200s · ISO 640

This is an absolutely wonderful shot!

My only criticism that is killing it for me is the fact that she is in a beautiful dress and he's in what looks like a dumpy white t-shirt. I'm assuming this was out of your control but just had to mention it.

Yea it really wasn't in my control.. But.. The tuxless groom does convey the end of a wedding which is kind of what this shot is.
But then again, as a picture probably it would of been better with the tux on :)

Now this a a photo that could have not happened if you were lazy, or just wanted to get home. The groom in the t shirt adds to the photo.

You are SPOT ON!!
I shot at this venue 6 times this year and only did this shot once!
The other 5 i was lazy and tired.

Her dress in simply enough, that with him out of his tux it makes it about them. With a tux on it becomes another very well shot photo of a bride and groom. This way, it is a very well shot picture of them.

Even though it becomes a very long day, I do like staying until the end of the reception.

Amazing shot! That lighting is insane...I assume this is permanent and not setup just for their wedding?

This would be a world class 5 star if the groom was still in a suit....that is such a bummer he isn't but still amazing image!

Hello Patrick!
This venue does have permanent lighting and was not setup just for this couple.
Thanks for poping my world class bubble :)

Yes, But not as happy as i was :).
Clients don't always know when a picture is a worldclass picture, They think it's easy and is our job ;)
