My first wedding shoot!
Sunday, October 28, 2012
Okay as many of you know, photography is a passion of mine. I'm no pro, but I do enjoy taking pics of all sorts of events. During the last week of September, I shot my first wedding.
I did the shoot as a favor to my best friend's niece. She couldn't afford a pro, so she told me whatever I could do would be greatly appreciated.
Not exactly an ideal lighting situation for outdoor formal photography. It was quite challenging. It was a BRIGHT and blazing hot California fall day; it was approximately 100 degrees. The lighting in the reception hall wasn't much better. Long florescent lights, which gave everything a cold blue cast. My friend Joel came over for dinner last night, and he told me he used to be a professional photographer before he became a DBA. He gave me a few pointers for "next time" However he said I did a pretty good job with the challenges I was presented, especially this being my first attempt at a formal event.
Below are a few images....
