"Hanging With My Buds"
©David A. Ziser
I tend to post more classical portraits here at DPT, but today I thought I'd give you a peek at some of my favorite images that I take at weddings. When shooting my group images at a wedding, I do take the classic standing group shot which always looks good and is a favorite for many of my clients. But after taking a few of those photographs, I always ask everyone to give each other a "group hug". The request always results in a spontaneous, vivacious image just as it did in this image of the bride with all of her bridesmaids. This image, by the way, was one of the bride's favorites for her album. My clients always like the “huggie” shots which are fun, relaxed and enables me to capture some great expressions. Camera spec: Canon 5D Mark II fitted with 24-105mm IS lens at 60mm, F 4.0 @ 1/13 second (handheld), ISO 2,500. Enjoy! -David
