I had a great time with Heather and Jarrett (you guys are awesome!). In fact, the entire wedding party and both families were very friendly and easy to work with. I practically felt like a guest that had known these folks for years. Now on to the images!
Still in that same room, I wanted to get one more shot but with a different feel than the others. I placed a flash behind her and aimed it at the wall. This is an easy way to get a white background in any situation. Al is holding a second snooted light that focuses the beam of light on her face. We already had soft window-light stuff, so I wanted to go with something a little more edgy and dramatic.
The bridesmaids' dresses were beautiful and great for photography. I love how those shiny, silky reds show up in pictures. This was during a prayer in the ceremony. I'm glad I snapped it when I did, because the little girl picked her head up and was looking around right after this.
A quick shot of their lovely cake. I decided to let my flash sneak into the image because I thought I would like the spotlight effect. An on-camera flash bounced off the wall provides enough fill to bring out the texture and detail on the front of the cake.
And one final parting image. Heather and Jarrett share a quiet moment between the ceremony and reception. A flash placed directly behind Heather is aimed at them both. The idea is for Jarrett's white shirt to reflect the light on to her while providing that cool edge light on both of them. My on-camera flash is bounced off a wall to provide some fill light on them both.
