So 2 weeks ago I had an amazing couple that was so calm through the whole day, but knew how to have a good time. The bride was a planner and told me a week before the wedding, "Ok Joe, we are doing our first look, and then following that we are all going to jump on a trolley and for 3 hours the city is yours. We have no picture locations picked out, we just don't want landmarks but we want you to pick places you can be most creative.". My jaw hit the floor in excitement, then I began to think. Most places in Philadelphia all require permits and they need to be filled out 10 days prior. After a bit of back and fourth I mapped out some kick ass locations and we made it happen. Heres a few pictures from the set, but here is the blog post with more pictures from the wedding: http://joedantone.com …r-wedding-evan-christina/ (external link)

Really nice work Joe!
Is the group photo (#4) a composite?

#1 really strikes me with the light and what it catches :)

I love your work and would love to be able to shoot a wedding with an entire city able as a backdrop! I must say though, I'm always surprised at bridal couples that will take 3 hours out of their day for photos if their guests are waiting. Whatever, it's their day and photography is obviously a priority to them, they're allowed. Great work on these, I'm sure they were thrilled!

Yup #4 was a composite, it was 8 shots layered together. 1 frame for each couple and then a blank frame to remove my lighting assistant. The problem was that the clouds shifted on me quicker than I thought they were moving so half the shots the Temp and exposure was off, so I had a lot of correcting. Also there were a few people walking around behind that statue so I had to time it to where I couldn't see them so it would look clean in the background.

This couple totally rocked with giving me that much time. Lucky enough for the guests they weren't waiting. The couple did a first look and these pictures were taken even prior to the ceremony.

Thank you! Its tough up there because theres not much space to work with, and they got a new security door up there, its not like the old door,, but I called ahead and told them my situation and security brought us up!

Thanks! All I do is throw an SB-910 inside of a Westcott 26" Rapidbox or if I need more light I will use a bare strobe or if more is needed I will use 2 bare strobes side by side. This setup is quick and easy, its also easy for the person holding the light for me because its all on a monopod and I change the power settings from my SU 800 on the camera. Let me know if theres something more in specific you want to know about with the lighting!

I had a quick look at your site I really love your group photo composites with lighting on each individual. I'm assuming you have your camera on a tripod for those?

Thanks! When I first started doing them I'd use a tripod, but I'm always trying to minimize timing so I taught myself different ways of shooting them without a tripod. Even the composite that are about 10-12 frames I do all handheld.
