Good til the Last Drop

When it comes time for the bride and groom to share their first piece of wedding cake, I never know what to expect. This, however, was as messy as I’ve ever seen:)

This image was made at the Deschutes Brewery in Bend, Oregon. The venue was completely dark but all I used was some bounce flash, directed into the white wall behind me and to my left. I could’ve slowed down the shutter speed a little, and let in some more ambient light, but I wanted the cake-covered groom to stand out so I left the background just dark enough that the guests were visible but not competing for space within the frame.

Attention to Details

It’s always nice to have a helpful Maid of Honor. In this Broken Top wedding, shot in Bend, the MOH maid sure the bride’s dress was going to look perfect as her father escorted her down the aisle.

Bend Wedding

Katherine & Spencer were married at the Broken Top resort in Bend this past summer, and it was a splendid day for a wedding in Central Oregon. Katherine bought her dress at Bella Brides and I thought it looked stunning when contrasted against these lovely aspens. This image was made just after sunset, when the light was perfect and the temperature had cooled. I used my long lens and ambient light only, no flash for this image.
