“River Of Dreams”

When shooting at the Marriott River Center in Northern Kentucky, I always try to pull off this shot.  The City of Cincinnati, the Ohio River, the historical Roebling Suspension Bridge in the background all come together as a wonderful background for the couple in this shot.  Look how the implied lines of the city, river, bridge, and railing all lead the eye to the couple who I have positioned in the bottom right quadrant of the image. The strong composition, rich blue sky (thanks to a little Lightroom), and great expressions on the couple’s faces makes for a great addition to any wedding album.  Camera specs; Canon 40D fitted with 10-22mm lens at 14mm, F 5.6 @ 1/200 second, ISO 200.  Enjoy!  -David


  1. David, I cannot seem to get the hang of those really wide angle lenses. How far away from the couple were you in this shot>

  2. I like shooting downtown, I find it hard to get couple to invest a lot of time on their wedding day. Any hints on getting them to spend more time?
