By using the window for indirect lighting I was able to obtain some great portraits here. Notice how by just changing the orientation of the camera the resulting image has a totally different feel to it. The image on the right was taken using flash along with natural light.
Taking the group images indoors using natural light has its limits. As some got father from the light source a flash must be used. The two on the right used fill flash to ensure proper exposure.
The reception hall has an outdoor atrium where we went to take these casual images.
The hotel had some interesting furniture. I arranged the basic poses and they did the rest. The last image I had them look over a balcony.
Wedding cakes are always different. This one was stacked very high. The chef for the hotel also was creative in making hearts out of the watermelon. The topmost layer of the cake is eaten a year later but the bride and groom get to taste the lower layer of the cake first.
The reception line outside the church is always an interesting place to take pictures. This wedding ended in late afternoon. The sun was out (we are in Oregon) so I was able to use the natural sunshine to my advantage. The last image was them in the limo. A flash is mandatory in here along with using a wide-angle lens. I used a Nikon 24 mm F 2.8 to get this shot.
While the bride and groom are meeting well-wishers other friends are outside ensuring that their vehicle is also decorated to greet the couple when they leave. The finished product and caught in the act of tossing over a roll of crepe paper.
