I've shot over 75 weddings in the almost 3 years I have been in business and I have seen quite a bit of craziness so far, nothing like this though. Before the entrees were even served the groom was bombed, shirtless and bleeding from his head from smashing dishes over it! Made for some great pictures, some of which I didn't post publicly on my blog but it was insane. Here are a few images from the wedding but click here for the full post http://joedantone.com …y-greek-orthodox-wedding/ (external link)

let me be the first to say - awesome job

that was a crazy ass party

you really captured a few very precious moments


'you only go around once' is clearly the family motto


Hockey and wedding photographer. Favourite camera / lens combos: a 1DX II with a Tamron 45 1.8 VC, an A7Rii with a Canon 24-70F2.8L II, and a 5DSR with a Tamron 85 1.8 VC. Every lens I own I strongly recommend [Canon (35Lii, 100L Macro, 24-70F2.8ii, 70-200F2.8ii, 100-400Lii), Tamron (45 1.8, 85 1.8), Sigma 24-105]. If there are better lenses out there let me know because I haven't found them.

Crazy indeed! Nice job on capturing the event. Love the lighting in the church. I assume that it was natural light there?

Nice!

I like the picture of the Groomsmen with the shadows heading towards the camera. What kind of flash did you use?

Thanks! No flash was used in the groomsmen image. It was heavily backlit and because of my angle I was at I was getting a very heavy lens flare even with the lens hood on so I had my assistant hold a reflector over my head so the darker tones wouldn't get muted by the flare. Once in post, I brought back shadows to bring the detail back more in the front of the subjects.

As Frank Barone would say "Holy Crap" really nice job on your part. Did you volunteer to sweep up
when it was over?

Thanks for the compliments everyone. And just a note, I was picking shards of porcelain out of my hair before I left the reception haha. But yes, the floors in the church were amazingly clean, and the directional light coming in through the windows made everything so perfect for reflections off the floor.
