    I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding with a fun bride and groom yesterday.

    This is a series of the bride sneaking under the glass in the door to the sanctuary so that no one could see her before the ceremony.:lol:

    During the ceremony the bride and groom had a little trouble keeping things burning. :blushing:

    The whole unity candle series is fun. Someone could probably come up with a way it's a metaphor for marriage in general. I like it.

    I really like the ring shot and the last one. When I was able to do weddings (I have a broken leg now) I liked to do a similar shot to the last one but I liked to blur out the guys and have them pose a little more casually.

    The ring shot was straight natural light. D2X / 105VR macro. The last three were all taken with 2 SB800's connected with pocket wizards. One on the camera and one on a lightstand equipped with an umbrella somewhere between 20° and 60° from the line of site of the camera. The light stand and umbrella fold up smaller than a tripod and you can set them up in under 3 minutes so it is great for this type of portrait. The umbrella gives wonderfully soft light, no hard shadows. Hard to take bad pictures with this sort of setup. They all come out with that "studio" look.:D
