I had the most amazing opportunity to join Chris Austin , 13 other photographers and a big bunch of brides and grooms at March Air Reserve Base in Riverside on Sunday. There was lots of shooting. And laughing. And creativity. And learning.
Each of the fantastic brides & grooms I shot will be getting their own post… so I’m going to start with my most challenging. See, by the time I began shooting Dana and Hunter the sun was nearly gone. The beautiful golden hour had passed and we were at dusk. Then twilight. Then night. Pitch.Black.Night. So, for the first time, I broke out all kinds of flash action and had them popping all over the place. It was awesome and I am BEYOND thrilled with the results.
And I MUST thank Dana and Hunter for being amazing and patient and FIERCE! Seriously, ridiculously, fierce. I absolutely adore this couple. First, his hair is amazing. Second, they were down for anything. She even bought a dress that we could destroy. If I asked it, it was done… with more enthusiasm than I’ve ever seen in my life. I said "do you think a person could fit between these tires?" and before I knew it, she was wedged all the back there! Third, I already knew her (here’s where I sound like a stalker.) Dana is The Broke-Ass Bride! Somewhere along the line I came across her blog and I liked her. I really liked her. It had been a bit since I’d checked in on her, but now we can be friends in real life 🙂
Anywho, I know she’s dying for some images… so here you go!
