Justin & Amy’s Wedding: Some Creative Shots

The natural props provided by the park setting came in quite handy when setting up the creative shots of the newly wed couple.

The stone wall made a great setting for Justin to hold his new bride in his arms.

While shooting a series of different setting and angles I became concerned that perhaps Justin was tiring but he was game and continued holding Amy for the entire scene.


A tree near the pavilion proved the perfect place for Justin to try to find his girl. My thoughts for this shot were for Justin and Amy to look around opposite sides of the tree at the camera. Justin didn’t understand what I was wanting and instead looked around for Amy making a much better shot than I had envisioned.


Clasping hands on top of a fence post the couple displayed the old rings now uniting a new couple. This scene lent itself well to selective color.

During this, my first wedding shoot, I used the Canon 30D with both 24-105mm and 17-40mm lens topped with a Canon 430EX Speedlight and a Lumiquest pocket bouncer to diffuse the flash.
