    ..and for good reason. Last Saturday's was the first of 2010 for me. I was rusty to say the least.

    Anyway, here's a few of my favorites from the day.

    C&C, offers of marriage, donations to my paypal account and gifts of small furry animals always appreciated.

    A few quick bridal shots. The wedding was running nearly an hour late so I had about 5 minutes to shoot all these.

    yes. Speedlight and a small softbox. I used all speedlights on this gig except for the formal shots where I broke out the monolight.

    Great stuff! Digging #7 and #10.

    It's such a joke that $1,000 dresses come with or are used in conjunction with a $0.25 hanger...my eye always goes to and doesn't leave the cheap ugly hanger. Lame.

    Anyhow, great stuff, I'm sure the couple will be giddy.

    Love the photos, Jim! I think you're being a little hard on yourself. The dance photos are good, they just don't stand out over the earlier shots. Honestly, it looks like everyone is tired at the dance- happy, but tired.

    Idyfohu - I never thought about the hanger like that before. What's your solution?

    What lens do you use for your ring shots? Wondering if they are cropped in or your lens gets macro like that.

    Great pics!

    Thanks! I use a Tamron 90mm macro lens for all my close up shots. The lens is also a very good portrait lens as well.

    I like the introduction of the line of an object in 9 and 10, gives it a spy shot like feel... do you always look to shoot that or do you keep one or two in PS you just add in post :)

    Whats your lighting set up for these / reception?

    The "line" in both shots are organic. Meaning that they were part of the scene.

    The first one is the edge of a mirror. The shot is actually a reflection of the bride. The second line is part of the ceiling. I grabbed the shot when I saw the groom sitting there. Then I moved so that the ceiling wasn't in the shot for the subsequent shots. The first shot was lit by bouncing my 580EX off the wall. The second one is natural light.

    For the reception lighting I had three speedlights set up. One firing thru a small softbox. The other two were bounced off a ceiling. They're usually set up in a triangle formation. I normally use monolights instead of speedlights at the reception, however this is a small venue and I don't need much light so the speedlights were easier to use and move about.
