View Full Version : First Wedding Under My Belt.
3rd of March 2006 (Fri), 22:00
Guess I better start pitching in some images around here, been hanging around in the dark corner long enough. :)
This was my first real wedding gig with digital and I was as nervous as a long tailed cat. Luckily for me a buddy of mine from another forum drove all the way over to help out and lend his moral support.
Anywho... here are just a few of the images. Some will be recieving some more work on them.
Bride with daughter.
The Groom (and buddy)
Sorry for the edit.. pressed enter key by mistake. :)

That first one is a nice moment captured ... did you add the soft focus effect? I'd like to see it au naturel.

I did do a post process on the soft focus shot. I don't have the unprocessed shot on my page, but here's the shot right before that one...
I'm actually thinking of doing it in B&W .. might be a nice look. ;)

Watch that white balance, now the photo's are a bit all over the place in colors. But nice photo's so with some tweaks they'll be thrilled!!

Thankfully I shot in RAW, so I can get back in there and fix'em up. :D
Thanks for the comments Petra. :)
You want a real nightmare... the reception was in an adjoining building, and the interior, walls, ceilings, doors were a dark dark (almost purple) blue. :eyes
Kinda made the gymnasium/sancuary(sp) seem pleasant. If you don't count the basketball hoops at both ends. ;)

Yeah .. I can see in your eyes how bad you feel for me. ;)
Here's a shot my buddy/second shooter took .. that shiny head in the chair is me. :)
And from the pulpit, you can try for a three pointer over the Grooms right shoulder.

Some cool shots there. I remembered reading your post saying you've also got a wedding coming up. Good to hear you didn't pass out from it. :lol:
If you shot them all RAW (which I hope you did), it should be easy to make all white balance the same with colour temp settings.

OMG, that's a blue room for sure!!! :o
But good thing you had that shiny head, sorta built-in ligthsphere ;) (JOKING!) :D

Weddings are scarey for sure. But you did good. Thank God for raw.Some BG colors and mixed lighting can be a real challenge. I did a couple of weddings for friends and they loved the shots and keep sending people to me. Then I have to tell them I don't do weddings!

I think that's what my buddy was going for. :)
Yeah, I learned a long time back that the only way to go is RAW. I tried to talk my buddy into using an established wedding photographer, but he just wouldn't let it go.

Yes i too think a bit of tweaking with white balance and these shots will pop out! I find them to be a bit cold, but it's probably because of that nasty blue wall hahaha - maybe a bit of warm filter through them in PS and they wil be eve better! I liek your close ups of the bride and groom individually!!
The first shot is a gorgeous capture!!

Thanks for the kind words Del. :)
That first shot was down with a PS plug-in called virtualphotographer.
Here's a link if you want to try it. It isn't for Mac's though.
