At this wedding, shot on the University of Oregon campus, I used a 16′ ladder to get the perspective I wanted. The couple wanted everyone to form a circle around them during the ceremony, leaving me with no angle with which to shoot. The night before the wedding I schlepped the ladder over to the site and U-locked it to a bike rack, knowing I’d need it the next day. Once the ceremony began I had an excellent vantage point. This image was taken with my 70-200mm lens, shot at 200mm at f2.8. I really like the emotions being expressed here. The couple wrote their own vows and they were heartfelt!
