So i'm coming down to the home stretch and I haven't post in here in a while. I only have 1 more wedding for the year at this point. The wedding I am about to share was a blast to shoot. We were under massive time crunch, Only had 25 minutes for bridal party, and couple portraits because of the distance to the portrait location. Unlike most times you hit time crunch and its unexpected, I knew this one was coming so I mentally prepared for it and it went so smoothly. Below is a few images, here is the blog post http://joedantone.com …eld-country-club-wedding/ (external link)

Awesome photos!

You accomplished the composite, along with the other photos in 25 minutes? It sometimes takes me 20 minutes to get them from their car parked at the shooting location, to the actual shooting location.

Really digging the 2nd one, but they're all fantastic!

Thanks! And yea, composites I've managed to be able to hand hold the camera and not use a tripod and I have a flash with a 14" soft box that I keep attached all day. The composite for the group shot took two takes because the groom and one other person blinked in the first run. But the second run went fine, total it took roughly 5-7 minutes. The bride and groom made the bridal party fully aware that I can bang this out quickly if they all just cooperate. I had a lovely second shooter with me which helped a lot getting everyone rounded up and where I needed them to be.

Fill flash can be a beautiful thing. Nice photos.

These are worlds apart from all of the natural light, high ISO, shallow depth of field shots you see every other photographer doing these days in which every photograph starts to look the same as the previous one.

The arrangement and lighting in the first photograph is absolutely amazing - masterful might be the better word.

Quality images.

I really like the first shot. Is that really only a 2 shot composite? How did you light it? It looks like the 3 separate group are lit separately so I was assuming 3 different shots.

The only problem with using fill for everything in the shot is that I wanted to create a dramatic mood without everything in the frame being lit. So for the bridal party shot, I could've definitely used a big fill flash from the side, but I would've had elements lit that I didn't want being a focal point.

Thank you! I wish I had gotten closer for the 4th image so you could actually see the tear drop. When the resolution isn't sized for web its a lot more clear but I had to crop in pretty good to make the tears visible.

Haha thank you very much, everyone has their own style. I try to light things in a different way but still keep that timeless look, while still looking modern and edgy.

Thanks! Its actually a 7 shot composite. Each group had their time to shine. I literally had my assistant walk around with my flash (SB910) with a 14" Lumiquest soft box on it and I would take one frame of each couple. I've gotten to the point where I do it all hand held now and I don't need a tripod to make sure all the layer line up. I executed this shot with posing all of them within 5-7 minutes. In photoshop it took about the same amount of time to merge the different layers.

Cool shots - I like the off camera flash use, subtle and really makes the images :)
