Image of the Week!!

These images are from the Jasper and LaShina Goode wedding that I second shot for Anthony Webb’s Jazz Images Photography.  As I stated in my earlier posts there always seems to be one image that seems to capture the essence of the wedding day. However, this wedding was a little different. There were several moments. Often during the wedding,  photographers  typically will zoom in on the bride, her bridesmaids, and her mother to capture the emotional moments. This wedding reminded me to do not forget about the groom and his family. It is an emotional day for them as well. The two pictures below show Jasper coming to the realization that he about to get married in approximately one hour.  Both images were captured with the Nikon D300, 50mm F1.4 lens at f1.4 at 1/80 sec, ISO 500.

As I stated in my last blog post that at every wedding I have been blessed to cover there is always one picture that seems to capture the emotion and joy of the day. Juana and Fernando were wed on January 1, 2011 or 1-1-11. This image was taken on a Canon 5D Mark II. 24-70mm f2.8 lens. ISO 800, 46mm at f/4 at 1/60 sec. My second shooter Anthony Webb captured this image. I have second shot for him on occasion. His website is This image is perfectly composed image of a proud father looking on joyously as his daughter has her first dance with her prince. I was jealous after seeing this image. I remember processing this image in Lightroom and saying to myself that I do not have to do anything with this image. It is perfect. This is the type of image I try to capture at all my weddings. Next week I am posting one of my images from one of Anthony’s weddings. Turnabout is fair play.

The First Dance

Image of the Week

Every wedding I shoot there seems to be one image that captures the couple.  Over the next month I am going to post these images from the weddings I have covered over the last few years.

This image from 2009 captures the love between Siebie and Qiana. Capturing the love is my chief goal at every wedding I cover. I want to make beautiful portraits but I want to capture the emotion and excitement of the day. At this moment the couple was relaxing after the nuptials. The camera settings was a Nikon D70 with 28-80 mm tamron lenses at F 5.6 , ISO 200, 1/40 sec, natural light.
