I normally don't do weddings but I shot this one for a friend of mine. Nothing spectacular but I did enjoy myself. On camera flash because I was pushed for time.

Great shots. You need to watch those shadows. Caused by flash and proximity to a wall. Happens more in portrait orientation. The solution is to put flash head pointing up to the ceiling.

I tried bouncing on a black ceiling and it didn't go well. Thanks though. I think if I was to do another one in the same situation I'd definitely do it differently.

If you ever do another wedding, consider shooting at iso 6400 and ditching the flash for the ceremony shots.

There are several ways around the shadows problems.
This one was done indoors using the Flash Diffuser Pro...IMAGE LINK: https://photos.smugmug.com …_edited-1-X3.jpg&lb=1&s=A on Smugmug
One thing, using the flash on a bracket, you either need to trigger the flash with an off camera cord or with a radio trigger. I have tried the Canon optical trigger system and it was not fault proof enough to trust at a wedding.
However my Godox radio controlled flashes work great. But, using a battery grip and a Godox trigger, I needed to modify my flash bracket to make it larger than the original Stroboframe Camera Flip Bracket. The camera is equipped with a battery grip and the flash is triggered with a radio trigger.

This is the result of that modification built around the Camera Flip mechanism allopwing me to flip from horizonytal to vertical configuration...

On the other hand, using a lens with a tripod collar simplifies everything. Here is a Custom Digital T Bracket that I slightly customized for use when I am shooting with the tripod collared lens...IMAGE LINK: https://photos.smugmug.com …cation%20001.jpg&lb=1&s=A on Smugmug

Thanks. If I ever do another one I'll keep that in mind.
