Happy Anniversary: Amber + Chas

As fast as time passes, every now and then i’ll remember my beautiful brides and weddings of years past, and remember how grateful i am for such people in my life.
I happen to be backing up this wedding right at the time of their anniversary, so i thought i’d share. Dustin and i both got to shoot for this wedding, which is a rare treat. Here are two shots, two artistic choices. They were shot within a just a few minutes of each other.
You’ll notice first the drastic difference in the sky. When you expose for the faces (in shadow) the sky will be so bright, it look white in comparison. The only way to get the nice sunset colors and still get light on their faces is to bring in lights, which is exactly what Dustin did.
I put the specs below for all my photo friends out there. 🙂
ISO 320 f2.8 1/100 85mm
ISO 160 f5.6 15mm(fisheye)
Both are great artistic choices, and i’m glad they got both by having us both shoot. I’m so blessed to be married to a great husband & we can share talents together.
Happy anniversary Amber & Chas! Hope it’s a great one 🙂

More about Amber

Born in Denver, CO and raised in Upstate New York, I have traveled the world and now happily live near Mullica Hill, NJ in South Jersey with my 3 boys and baby girl on 4 acres of woods. I've enjoyed shooting since 2001, officially becoming a business in 2006. Although photography brings me much joy, I try to find ways to craft and create in other mediums too!
