All About the Veils

I have been pretty fortunate to have spent a long time photographing destination weddings all over the world. I started thinking about all the different wedding veils I have come across over the past decade. While the overall trend seemed to be for years that the veil was going away, it has recently made a strong come back.

Anatomy of an Image #16

It’s been a little while since I did one of these anatomy posts, so I wanted to start back up with a pretty abstract image. I was photographing the couple posing on the banks of the Eagle River in Beaver Creek, Colorado. I was getting some nice full body shots of the couple and their reflection in the river, but I wanted to try something a little more abstract. I found a place where the water was still enough to try to get a clear reflection, but still had enough movement to allow some motion blur of the aspen leaves swirling in an eddy.

The Breckenridge Ski Wedding

 

 

When people think about wedding photography, they don’t usually think about skiing action shots. That is what made this wedding so fun. I was able to pull from my background as an adventure travel photographer, and from my love of skiing, to create several images like this one. Continue reading »

Lisa and Salvador’s Wedding on Oahu, Hawaii

Venue: Turtle Bay Resort
Location: Oahu, Hawaii
Flowers: North Shore Weddings and Flowers
Hair and Makeup: Sarah from Whik’d Hairstyling & Makeup
Officiant: Jon Kuahiwi Moniz from Ae ‘Ike Hawaiian Wedding Ceremony

 

I was introduced to Lisa and Salvador through a mutual photographer friend. I was delighted when they asked me to photograph their destination wedding at the Turtle Bay Resort on the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. Destination weddings are a lot of fun to photograph, but they require a very particular skill set. For starters, it is important for the photographer to be very self contained. That means having everything I need including backup equipment in my carry on bag to avoid being separated from my gear. I also need to have the computer equipment with me in order to back up images before getting home. Check out my blog posts on what I pack, and how I back up in the field.

Lisa and Salvador’s wedding was particular fun to photograph. We were graced with just a bit of rain that resulted in a beautiful rainbow just behind their ceremony cite. The folks at Turtle Bay said that happens fairly often on this part of the Hawaii. Despite packing light for a destination wedding, I still managed to bring enough tools to do some off camera lighting at the reception, which I think really helped add to the drama of such a beautiful venue.

Katye and Matt – Breckenridge, Colorado

 

Katye and Matt had an intimate ceremony in a luxurious home with a deck over looking the Ten Mile Range in Breckenridge, Colorado. They were so much fun to photograph, and we ended up getting in Matt’s car and driving up a dirt road to find some gorgeous fall colors to photograph in.
