Los Coyotes Country Club Wedding

The sun was going down, and we were on the golf course. The bride wanted something special in the middle on the green. I took my small lightstand with one strobe on it, and placed it strategically behind the couple. I had done this many times in the past, so I knew what I was going to get. When I pulled the trigger, and showed the bride, her eyes lit up.

Oceanside Beach Wedding

Shooting at sunset on the beach is one of my favorite situations to shoot in. You really cant go wrong. I normally combine natural and off camera lighting, and shoot many different poses. In this series, I asked the bride and groom to run from the water to the camera several times. This frame was my favorite. This shot really shows the couple’s personality, and I love it.

First Look No Look

This was a fun wedding to shoot at Wedgewood Indian Hills. Both the bride, and groom helped create a bunch of fun photos. Here is one where neither the bride or groom wanted to see each other, but they still wanted a “first look” photo. We solved the problem by allowing them to hold hands around a corner with the entire bridal party looking on. The shot took an extremely wide lens to get what I needed, but of course I got it done.

You Might As Well Jump

I remember playing the Van Halen song “Jump” in my head while I was shooting this. Part of the song’s lyrics are “Might as well jump. Jump!”. Anytime someone in the bridal party mentions anything about jumping, I’m game. The results are always funny. It does take timing, but I’ve done enough of these that I have the timing down pretty good. I can nail it on the first shot, as long as my subjects are jumping at the same time – and that takes a few attempts.

Benedict Castle Wedding

The Benedict Castle is one of those venues that is easy to take great photos at. The couple that evening was gorgeous, and fun to shoot with. This particular shot was taken near the end of the reception. I simply asked the couple to step outside and look at each other. Then, I just put one strobe behind the couple, and you see the result. I love this shot.
