What a fun way to start the new year! On January 2 we had the pleasure of shooting Adam and Stephanie’s wedding at Northside Baptist Church with portraits later on Jekyll Island. A fun couple with a fun wedding party, we had a great time photographing them. It was a cold day, about 40 degrees, and they did a good job pretending to be warm during the photos outside.
Make sure you scroll to the end to see Adam, the groom, photobombing his wife’s portraits with a cartwheel!
I love the second shot with the sun wrapping around the dress. Beautiful dress show.
Also love the wide shot with the couple at sunset. Beautiful location.
Thanks man. The dress shot is Amanda’s. I love having a girl second shooter for that reason. I assume Rebecca works the same way? Location-wise, we are blessed beyond belief.
I love these photos, especially the one where the groom, groomsmen and ring bearer (I think) are acting up! And the sparkler pictures, especially the heart – how’d you do that?
You do fine work, and Jekyll Island is the perfect backdrop for that perfect day in a couple’s life. Thanks for posting these photos for us to enjoy.
Hey Rick. We got the heart sparklers photo all in-camera. I set the camera to the rightexposure for a several second shot and let them trace the heart with the sparklers. No wire or guide, just trial and error. It took about 20 tries to get the right shape.
Thanks for your kind words.
Love the shot of the sparkles shaped into hearts with both of them in the middle, how was that done? Was it wire, then lite?
Shannon, thanks for stopping by. We got the heart sparklers photo all in-camera. I set the camera to the rightexposure for a several second shot and let them trace the heart with the sparklers. No wire or guide, just trial and error. It took about 20 tries to get the right shape.
Chris, you do such great work. You have an amazing eye. I love the depth-of-field work, and especially the black and white.
Thanks man. I can’t wait to meet you and the rest of the guys next week. Maybe I can graba few of you while I’m there.
