Getting their groove on, Part 1

I love it when a bride and her bridesmaids are all out on the dance floor. Such great energy. I decided to convert this image to black and white since the color balance was off the charts (tungsten lighting from thousands of Christmas-type lights, my own Canon flashes, and the multi-colored lights spilling forth from the DJ’s setup, plus the last of the day’s ambient light)

Seven Springs wedding

Laurel & Jake were married yesterday at a place called Seven Springs Ranch. It’s located in Glide, Oregon, some 15 miles east of Roseburg. The bridal portraits took place at the hottest part of the day, with the sun shining almost directly overhead. Just down the hill from the bridal suite was this rustic looking spot, complete with dappled light. Looking at the Seven Springs website, it’s hard to tell there are over 400 acres of hilly, extremely photogenic scenery…but they’re worth seeking out! The indoor area is nice for rainy days but I’m glad Laurel & Jake decided to have their wedding outside:)
