    ... are suicide :lol:

    No really, they are quite delightful - as long as there is a warm limo/car nearby and a nice mug of hot chocolate waiting. I thought I would share some images from the last two weekends in which there was plenty of snow and Arctic wind to top it off! I also added some in from a November wedding in which we were all delighted to see a nice Chinook arch over the Rockies. Oh.. and a model shoot. I am so random today!

    If you are curious about any EXIF data or anything, just ask :)

    1. The temple down in Cardston is gorgeous I had never been there before!

    8. It was -26*C outside! I was ready to pack it in and they were just saying 'oh.. we are fine.. let's do some more'

    Wow, so many gorgeous ones there, I don't know where to start! Love your use of strong colours in the wedding photos. My faves are 1 (cute pose), 4 (love the gritty background and composition), 6 (you get a real feel for their funloving side), 7 (so retro!), 15 (the colours and arch rock!), and 16 (so sweet). Not to say there's anything wrong with the rest.

    :hail:Great shots as always! Love your work :). I have some questions on what your lugging around for receptions. I love the lighting in #10, it is brilliant. What where you using as lighting? You have a prefect blend of fill and ambient light. We're you able to bounce off ceiling? From the picture it looks black. What lens and aperture/iso did you shoot at for those pictures at that reception? Thanks for any input, great job

    Thanks so much everyone!

    Buzzzerker: Before I forget the stats here are the EXIF data. Both are ISO 1600, f/2.8. The one on the left is 1/30 and the one on the right is 1/50.

    I can't recall 110% but I am quite certain I was bouncing it off of a greyish/brown wall behind me. There is a slim chance I did bounce it off the ceiling - although the ceiling was black (what a pain!) I was going through batteries like you wouldn't believe at this reception! As for gear, all I had was a 580 EX II which - if I bring an assistant I might have them stationed across the dancefloor with another flash but.. not this time.

    Hopefully that helps some.

    Thanks for the info!

    That picture looks great for ISO 1600, what canon body are you using? Sorry about all the questions. It's amazing there is no motion blur at 1/30 and an excellent depth of focus for 2.8, I usually have to shoot at f-4 1/60 to get a usable picture....maybe its time for me to switch to canon. I just did a candle lit reception with a tall black ceiling......pretty tough job.

    Thanks for the info and keep those pictures coming :)

    I thought I wanted to start trying weddings again, but it's hard to compare to images like these! Fantastic, FANTASTIC work. Very impressive!
