We Went to a Wedding And Trashed the Dress October 20, 2009

Filed under: Wedding — Deb @ 2:55 pm

I have a very difficult time posting images from weddings because there are so many images to choose from – and I am not the best person at whittling those images down. So I have been remiss in posting the last few weddings we have shot. Thankfully Matt will be helping me choose some images over the next few weeks! In the mean time, I leave you with a sneak peak from the wedding we were at this past Saturday. Chantal and Tim were one of the most in love couples we have had the pleasure of working with, and Matt and I had to laugh when they ended the night with an impromptu foray into the La Playa pool. Enjoy.

And the foray into the hot tub:

It was so full that water was running out the sides!

For my photographer friends wondering how we captured these shots at night: Matt and I used our Canon 5Ds at their highest ISO, with wide-angle lenses at their widest apertures.  Because the ambient light wasn’t enough to capture Chantal jumping into the water, we added some video light by placing the light on a monopod and aiming it at her.  We didn’t want to use flash because the color temperature of the flash wouldn’t match the ambient light (we do have gels, but that’s not an ideal solution), and we wanted to capture the atmosphere.  Special thanks goes to Matt, who not only held the light, but kept shooting.
