    Well I see this got alot of views but no responses. I hope someone got to enjoy it as much as I did. By the way it is images from Gary Fong's recent wedding.

    They look ok. But nothing unlike every other good professional wedding photographer out there.

    Since the thread is titled amazing photos and not Fong's wedding. I'll post the link to http://flashflavor.com/ this guy who uses strobist style lighting with his assistant at his weddings. Some of the photos here are truly aweinspiring for me, and IMO much better than most of what was on the happy blog.

    Yes they are good. Very good. What I am saying though is it's not as unique as I possibly expected it to be. Fong and some other photographers in his circle charge significantly more than many other quality wedding photographers who seem to produce similar quality work.

    Well noone is going to pay for it unless they think it is worth it. But I guess that also omes down to marketing.

    Gear!?!?! I don't think you need to have a certain kind of gear to have the skills to shoot images like this you are just talking about highly skilled photographers yes, they do have good gear but I think they could do this with the cheapest as well as the best gear.

    mmmmm im gonna have to slightly disagree with you on that one. Although his work does show amazing composition, color, and timing......his work shows that he can hold a large aperature even at a relatively long zoom. My camera, on the other hand, contracts to 5.6 when i zoom out - which makes it hard to capture light quickly in low-lit situations. I see some of his work was inside and outside in the evening... I could never freeze a persons expression with that amount of light available with my lens. Thats all im sayin'. ;)
