What are you saying? I've been photographing wedding for 4 decades, and I still enjoy them...on my terms. The days of small events are pretty much gone for us unless we decide we want to do it.
This wedding was one of those occasions. Kim has been a friend since we moved here, and she just found Dennis the man of her dreams. They got married a few months ago but just had the celebration. When we received the invitation, we wanted to be a part of it! This was our first time photographing at Hermitage Golf Course, so we had no idea what to expect. But, when we saw this location, we stopped and composed this first shot of the couple. We are super happy with this one, and so are they. There are a few more that we like, but this is my favorite by far.
Technically mixing daylight with strobe is always a challenge, and I know I couldn't achieve this "natural look" with anything less than the Elinchrom Quadra and my Sekonic 478DR to accurately measure the two light sources and nail the balance.
