You’ll remember Katie & Denis’ awesome engagement photos we took at the very end of last year (in fact, the 2nd to last photoshoot I did for 2008) and since then I had been really looking forward to their wedding.Â They are such a fun, genuine couple that are truly in love.Â I didn’t know much about their story until Sergio (the best man) gave his wedding speech/toast at the wedding, and what a fun and amazing couple they are!Â Sergio, who undoubtedly gave the very best wedding speech (Lib’s was just as awesome as well!) I’ve ever heard in wedding history, insomuch that I really felt like I got to know Katie & Denis so much more and how wonderful a couple they make!Â The light throughout the whole day was beautiful (thank you AZ, you’re always kind to me) and it was just a blast to be there with them.Â The Stillwell House is always a fun place to shoot at, awesome details, superb staff and awesome food as well!Â Thanks again guys for allowing me to work with you both on such a special day, I feel so lucky!
Also. big props to my buddy Sergio, sergiomottola.com, who flew down from Seattle for the weekend and came and shot this wedding with me.Â You can see his stuff on his blog!Â His style is such a breath of fresh air, he definitely beats to the tune of his own drum and copies no one.
Wowzers!Â This ringshot is near the top of my favs, including their other ringshot you’ll find below!
Loved her hair, isn’t that gorgeous!?
Fun group of good lookin girls, hard to take a bad pic!
This should be the cover of a magazine for sure!
Amazing light during the ceremony, gotta love this kind of stuff!
Almost every wedding, the guests will be missing this kind of reaction of the groom when he sees the bride walking down the aisle.Â Everyone always looks down the aisle at the beautiful bride (like above), but miss the sweet tender expressions of the groom.
There’s the beautiful lighting again, man, it was awesome!
On technical standpoint, this was my favorite lens of the day.Â Gotta love the wide 24L loving, just fantabulous
Hard to say which one I like better.Â But I bounced my flash on Sergio (the photographer) who was off the side, and also held a napkin up near the flash to create this effect.Â You don’t need fancy tools to get the job done some times, just some ingenuity
Love this dance shot, I love how everyone’s attention is all on them!
