I met Jeff and Brenna when they hired me for their engagement session at the Botanical Gardens. I really enjoyed their wedding at the beautiful Superstition Manor.
As always, heres a song to play as you view the photos.
Photographer's Note: Canon 5d Mark II with a Canon 17-40mm F4L. Natural Light. The only source of light came from the windows. The lighting was soft but still dramatic so I saw no need to add more light.
The First Look. Gotta love Jeff's reaction.
Photographer's Note: Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 50mm F1.2L Natural Light from the windows and ceiling lights.
And it begins.
Photographer's Note: 50mm F1.2L Natural Light. I got real lucky with the overcast.
Bridesmaids. I love that they were holding hands during the vows.
Photographer's Note: Tamron 70-200 F2.8 Natural Light
First kiss at the base of the Superstition Mountains
Photographer's Note: Tamron 70-200mm F2.8. I cranked my aperture down to f6.3 to get more detail in the mountains. I know its not a lot at all but at f2.8 the mountains were just a creamy blurry mess.
The Bridal Party.
Photographer's Note: Canon 17-40 F4L this was a big bridal party but it was made easy work with this lens. Natural light. Gotta love those overcast days. Its not that I dont like using my alienbees, its just that after shooting so many weddings, you realize how much of a hassle and how much time it can take setting them up. If natural light is working then why mess with it?
Photographer's Note: Canon 17-40 F4L with a speedlite bounced off the ceiling. I shot this at a really high ISO and a slower shutter to bring in as much ambient as I could.
Best Man's Speech

Photographer's Note: Canon 50mm F1.2L. Speedlite off the ceiling.
Photographer's Note: I know this isnt as sharp as it should be but I still like it. Sometimes a photo doesnt need technical perfection to be a good photograph.
Always a Bridesmaid.

You should probably be able to figure out whats going on here. This is supposed to be the garter toss.
Photographer's Note: you already know.

Sparklers. You never realize how drunk a group of people are until you put fireworks in their hands and tell them to line up....
Photographer's Note: Canon 50mm F1.2L shot at F2. Speedlite on camera through a softbox. ISO 2000. Shutter 1/30. Bracketed two stops under exosed. Brought in the light on the bride and groom in post.
