This past Saturday I ventured from Austin to Boerne, a little town I have never been to before (which is just outside of San Antonio), to shoot Martha & Jeff’s wedding at Ye Kendall Inn. Truly an amazing couple that have been so good to me. I didn’t know this when I got there but I will also be shooting one of the bridesmaids weddings coming up in May (exciting!). The ceremony was all in Spanish and English and was during the perfect time of day and month for amazing weather and an amazing sky. There was a lot of Jeff’s family in from Canada at this wedding as well as Martha’s family from Mexico, and I have to say that both sides of the family were super nice. The DJ (Atmosphere entertainment) did a great job of keeping everyone dancing until it was time for the exit, in fact the dance floor was so packed I had to stand on a chair a lot of the time to capture everyone!
I think from now on if the wedding is 8+ hours I will be offering the option of a same-day slideshow, like Ben & I did at this wedding. We have typically only done them for weddings in the past if we think we have enough time and usually we just set up the laptop in a corner to play the slideshow on loop… but THIS time since they were already planning to show a slideshow of childhood photos, we simply played it right afterwards for everyone to see on the projector screen. It was amazing and I was so amazed by the sweet things people had to say to me afterwards.
This is an infrared photo taken with Ben’s infrared modified camera. It provides a glowing affect to any greenery and is perfect for outdoor ceremonies.
This would be a flash composite photo- this was 5 separate photos with 5 different locations of the light source photoshopped to create one. I like this because they provide the look of a photo with 5 flashes but instead there is only one! Just a little photoshop magic that doesn’t take much time at all.
Jeff’s father welcomed Martha into the Canadian family with a Canada t-shirt and mittens.
