I remember when Chelsea contacted me to get information on photographing her and Brad’s NYE wedding in Amelia Island. My first instinct was to tell her I wasn’t available because I typically will not shoot on NYE. I’m old fashioned, but I don’t like to be out on the road with drunk drives, so unless I can be home early enough, I usually decline NYE weddings. I decided to email her and tell her that and find out more about her wedding first and I’m so glad I did. I like to think I always make a great connection with my brides, but with Chelsea, I feel like I’ve gained a new friend. We emailed almost every day and when we finally met, it’s like we’d known each other forever. I’m so glad I didn’t close myself off to such a great opportunity to meet such an amazing person… actually, people.

Brad and Chelsea are perfect for each other in so many ways, but their chemistry is just amazing. They were surrounded by their closest family and friends when they married on the beach at the Ritz Carlton Amelia Island. As you can imagine, planning a wedding in Amelia Island from Michigan is no easy task, but it came together seamlessly. Big thanks to Makeup by Paulina Perez for Chelsea’s hair and makeup and a super big thanks to the staff at the Ritz Carlton for making their event not only amazing, but seamless. Here are my favorites. Enjoy!

Ali and Marielle had my heart from the get go. We met a little over a year before their wedding and listening tot heir love story just captured my heart from the start. Ali was her boss. They were both physicians going through their residencies. After I met with them, Ali and Marielle had to do a long distance relationship between Jacksonville and Oklahoma, where Ali’s residency took him.

They were planning a multicultural wedding. Marielle is catholic and wanted a catholic ceremony at Immaculate Conception Church. Ali is Persian and had many family members fly in from overseas to be there to watch their special day. Their persian ceremony and reception was at the Florida Yacht Club. The day was beautiful and their love just rang through their entire day.

Ali and Marielle – Your wedding day was a dream come true! I’m so happy to have had the honor to be your photographer. I’m so privileged to have gotten to know you both and I’m SOOOO excited that you’re off to starting your family! I can’t wait to meet little baby Amoli!! XOXO

Catholic Ceremony: Immaculate Conception Church

Persian Ceremony: Florida Yacht Club

Reception: Florida Yacht Club

Photographer: Jen Shannon

Florist: Shea Hopely

Hey everyone! I just wanted everyone to know that for a short time, I’ll be using my blog as both my blog and my primary website. Once my primary site is up and running again, I’ll let you know!

I still have a bunch of weddings to edit and get posted to my blog so stay tuned for those! Happy Wednesday!

Second shot for Life and Love Studio


***If you read nothing, please read this paragraph. These photos do not all represent my current work but are used to show you lighting I’ve used in the past for receptions. Some of them are from when I first started out (even from my first wedding) and do not necessarily use an editing style, shooting style, or technique that I would currently use. To see my current work, please view my 2011 weddings category by clicking here and my 2010 weddings by clicking here.

I was very grateful when a photographer I recently second shot for (posts will be coming soon) mentioned that she had been talking to a friend about me before I had shot with her for the first time and while he was looking at my work, he told her that I couldn’t shoot receptions. At first when she told me, I was thinking, “Why would he say that? I can shoot receptions!” Turns out it was because I really didn’t have any photos of receptions on my site. I’m glad she told me because, to be honest, I never even thought about it. I always thought people wanted to see the details, the pretty brides, the handsome grooms, etc. I never really thought about pictures of receptions (excluding reception details) as part of my portfolio. Well my fellow blog readers, thanks to Lindsey, I will be posting reception photos to my portfolio website and you’ll be seeing more of them on my blog when I post photos. I never realized that when brides and grooms look for a photographer, they actually ARE interested in seeing those photos.

There are a couple of ways I shoot receptions. It all really depends on the lighting, the size of the room that the reception is in, if it’s inside or out, and if I’m primary shooting or second shooting. My favorite lighting set up is with one flash on a stand, one flash on my camera, and my triggers to set them off. I NEVER point flash directly at what I’m shooting. My on camera flash stays pointed towards the ceiling in most cases and my on camera flash shoots at an angle that allows the light to be shot out directly in front of the flash, but because it is hoisted in the air on a stand, the fall out from it hits the people I’m photographing, so it’s a nice, soft light and it’s directional. I love directional light. I also like to shoot into that flash to get a nice lighting effect. Here are some examples of directional flash.

undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedAnother type of lighting I did recently was to play off the lights of a videographer’s video light. This particular wedding I was along as more of an assistant than a second shooter so I didn’t take much at the reception. I bumped up my ISO pretty high and took these. It really was representative of what the room felt like and looked like, though if it were my own wedding I probably would have done it differently. Click here to view photos of H&J’s vow renewal.

undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedThen there are the outdoor receptions. These are probably my favorite because the light is from the sun instead of an electronic light source. I love shooting in diffused sunlight or on a cloudy day.

undefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedundefinedThen there are some photos where you drag the shutter speed to get a certain effect or shoot into the flash to get a flare.

This particular photo was interesting. Everyone was watching a slideshow that was put together of their wedding which occurred in Colorado. They had a reception only in Illinois for the guests that couldn’t come and they were showing photos from that wedding. I wanted to get the “star” look with the lights in the background so I took my tripod and did a long exposure. I had my husband (my second shooter) flash them in in the bottom right area which froze their movements, lit them nicely, and still got the starry effect I was looking for.

And to end, here are my favorite reception photos from D&ML’s wedding that I posted a few days ago. Click here to view photos from their wedding.
