Congrats Chase and Katie!

September 17, 2015  •  1 Comment

Chase and Katie's wedding was my first wedding back in Arizona after a pair of weddings in the midwest. I shot their engagement photos as well so I am going to include those in this post. 

Enjoy!

 

I love this shot from their engagement session. We had this shoot in downtown phoenix.

Photographer's Note: Shooting downtown can be really easy for natural light because at most hours of the day, it isnt hard to find completely shaded areas. I shot this with my 85mm F1.8.

 

I love this location. It is on the side of this huge church across the street from the convention center. 

Photographer's Note: This was shot with my old 50mm F1.4 (Before I made the upgrade to the F1.2) Natural light. I love shooting with a shallow depth of field and when you shoot on spots like this with a lot of lines and pattern it creates a great effect.

 

Alright. Now for the wedding stuff!

 

Details. I love how soft yet contrasty this photo is.

Photographer's Note: I shot this with my Tamron 70-200mm F2.8. I used a speedlite on camera bounced off the ceiling. I used the flash because I had natural light coming in from behind the flowers and I wanted to bounce the flash to get all the detail in these flowers. I easily could have just used the natural light without the flash and it would have blown out the background more but I mean come on, I do that way too much.

 

Katie and TANK! How funny looking is this dog?! He was so lazy. He wasnt at all bothered by all the people running around in the bridal suit. 

Photographer's Note: Shot with my 50mm F1.2. I used a combination of natural light as well as a speedlite bounced off the ceiling for fill light.  

 

So many people in one photo. All the ladies.

Photographer's Note: You can imagine this was a bit of an experience lining everyone up in this photo. Especially because this is not a big room. I shot this with a 17-40mm F4 and a speedlite bounced off the ceiling. 

 

Bridals. Everyone looked so beautiful. It was really fun photographing this rambunctious group. (Dont even get me started on the guys)

Photographer's Note: 50mm F1.2. Natural light. This was taken right before the first look photos and we had some time before the guys met us down there.

 

The dress.  This was taken right after the bride put on the veil. I saw her standing in front of the window and asked her to pose for a quick photo. 

Photographer's Note: Tamron 70-200 F2.8. Natural light.  I posed her with her hands slightly pulling on the veil to give a slight sense of movement.

 

Bride and Groom. This hotel (San Marcos) in chandler really had some beautiful locations to shoot at. I have done engagements here before but I have always wanted to shoot some wedding photos here. 

Photographer's Note: 50mm F1.2 Natural light. 

 

Movement. There are a few things I dont like about this photo but overall I do enjoy how it came out. 

Photographer's Note: I shot this with a 17-40mm F4. I used an Alienbee B800 camera left through a softbox. I should have probably thrown one to the right through a strip box for a rim light on the right side but we were on a serious time constraint. Overall though I like how it came out. I had my partner Jacob, hold the veil out. 

Running. I love this photo so much. 

Photographer's Note: We squeezed this photo in right before the ceremony. Shot with a 17-40mm F4. Alienbee B800 camera right through a large softbox. 

 

Giving her away. I loved working at this venue. 

Photographer's Note: Shot with my 50mm F1.2. Natural light.

 

Vows. I love how soft the light is in these ceremony photos.

Photographer's Note: Shot with my Tamron 70-200mm F2.8. Natural light. It was perfect out there. No reason to throw flashes in the mix.

 

Congratulations you two!

Photographer's Note: Shot with my 50mm F1.2. There was a huge window camera left and that offered great diffused light. 

 

Formals? Yeah they were a wild bunch (I am only getting started)

Photographer's Note: Both photos were shot with a 17-40mm F4. Alienbee B800 camera left through a softbox.

 

First dance. Gotta love all that color in the background.

Photographer's Note: Shot with my 50mm F1.2. Natural light actually. The DJ set up a spot light on them and it actually wasnt some wonky color! lucky me! I did the father-daughter and mother-son dances different but we will get to that. 

The groom's brother made a toast and started crying pretty hard. It was a really beautiful moment that was made even more beautiful when the best man came up to show him support.

Photographer's Note: Tamron 70-200mm F2.8. Two Alienbee B800's in opposite corners bounced into the corners. 

 

Bridesmaids. 

Photographer's Note: Tamron 70-200mm F2.8. Two Alienbee B800's in opposite corners bounced into the corners. 

 

Dad's speech. Man, this guy was good. I really enjoyed his toast.

Photographer's Note: Tamron 70-200mm F2.8. Two Alienbee B800's in opposite corners bounced into the corners. 

 

Mother-son and Father-daugher.

Photographer's Note: Tamron 70-200mm F2.8. Two Alienbee B800's in opposite corners bounced into the corners. 

 

Yeah.. They raged. Such a crazy crowd. 

 

Thanks for reading. Until next time!
