"Wedding Day Daydreams"

This is an image I captured at Saturday’s wedding.  The forecast was for rain later in the day with temperatures hovering in the low sixties.  Fortunately the bride and groom had scheduled photographs to be taken before the wedding.  We began the portrait session earlier in the day just as the clouds began rolling in.  I thought if I could just get a few outdoor images with the sky looking this good, I would have a great start on the wedding coverage.

The wedding and reception were taking place at the country club so it was an easy walk to the first tee to capture this image. I love how the image came together. I had my assistant positioned about 120 degrees from my position, camera right.  With the bride in a profile view the light came in perfectly on the bride.

Golfers had just started to tee off on #18, the green to my right and caused the geese resting around the pond to take flight. All elements came together for a very nice bridal portrait on Saturday afternoon.

Camera specs: Canon 7D fitted with Sigma 8-16mm lens at 16mm, F11 @ 1/125 second, ISO 200.  Enjoy!  -David


  1. AMAZING! BEAUTIFUL! I think this is one of your new signature images!

  2. nice shot! the birds in the top right corner really worked!

  3. I love this! great job, i had a blast working along side you, LaDawn and Nick! Hope you all had a safe trip back home!

  4. Love it David. Similar to the Kelby training you did (last year?) with dragging the shutter to bring drama to the sky.

    I have used that technique a few times now.
