Today I had the pleasure of photographing Sarah and Andrew's wedding, my seventh (time flies when you're having fun). I'm always amazed at the transformation from the-girl-next-door to "wow" that brides and bridesmaids undergo.

I'm slightly less terrified after my 7th wedding than I was after my 2nd (don't even ask about the first), though i'm getting a little better at hiding it. The weather was perfect for sunbathing, which is to say it was faaaaaar too bright for photos. After 2 hours rating them in photoshop (and 5 bourbons) here are my fat bakers favorite dozen photos. There's virtually no post processing, other than running a few actions, some quick B&W conversions, and moving a couple of butterflies to where I wanted them.

Constructive critique is welcome, i'm my own harshest critic and I can see many flaws, i'm always very open to ways to improve.

Hi Tim,

Thanks for sharing.

Great set! Tell me, you use two bodies... do you use two flash brackets? Or do you just keep one as a spare?

Two thumbs way way up!

Hey Tim great work there dude! Good set of shots there. I'm still working on my framing. What software do you use for yours?


"Every shoot is a chance to learn!"
Canon 5D
Canon 10D
50mm 1.8 II lens
85mm 1.8 lens
28-80 3.5-5.6lens
75-300 4.0-5.6lens
The rest is not canon.
Oooops did I say that out loud.

Yep I use two 20D's, I have one bracket (Pro-T), though I didn't feel the need to use it today - they're essential indoors in portraits mode, only mildly helpful outdoors. Plus the Pro-T is uncomfortable with the grip so i'm going to replace it some time soon, not sure with what yet.

I'll update my "lessons learned" thread in the next day or two. Actually i'll make a page on my website and link to it, it's easier.

Mike's framer. Google it or search on POTN. Great script, easy to use, and cheap.

Great. Thanks for the feedback.

I am curious to know if anyone using dual live bodies also uses two flash brackets.

I only seem to use two bodies when i am shooting without flash. Usually it just stays in my back as backup.

Keep up the great work.

Rob

I wouldn't use two flash brackets. I keep my 2nd camera on my back with the strap around my chest, that wouldn't work so well with a bracket. Worst case I can change lenses between my bodies, even though it takes 10 seconds or so.

I'm mildly tempted to get a third body, and hire someone to hold it for me. Plus i'd like a lighting assistant, a makeup artist, and a hairdresser... and maybe a studio. Not too much to ask eh ;)

LOL... Yeah i didn't figure anyone would, and don't really see how anyone would juggle it anyway. My wife doubles as my assistant, and she knows the "have my tele ready" or whatever signals i throw at her. She grabs my lens, hands me my requested one, and gives the old one a wipe over too if required. Takes about 3 seconds for a lens change, so there is not really much benefit in two bodies for me for my wedding stuff. Works really really well.

I want to get a second 20D for better backup in the studio, and yeah, a whole entourage would be nice too :P

Tim, in the first butterfly picture, did you notice that the butterfly is upside down?

Great bunch Tim, don't fancy #3, it's a bit too overprocessed (was that after the 4th burbon?). The rest is great and I love the butterfly even if it looks like it's been tasting the same burbon. :D

Haha, no. I got about 12 butterfly shots but I missed that particular one, I liked her position so I put a butterfly in... i'll put a different one in :)

Tim, that's a great idea - edit in a better looking butterfly, cuz that image rocks.

A makeup artist for weddings? You might just be the first one :D
