Raleigh Wedding Photojournalism

This week’s image is an example of what can be done in 5 minutes when you’ve taken the time to scout out the location in advance. In this case, we had just a few minutes after the November ceremony at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Raleigh to take some quick pictures of the bride and groom. I’d taken the time to head out the day before to check out the lighting at that time and had noticed that there was an area across the road from the church that would provide a nice backdrop of autumn colours and light at that time of day. We would have been quite limited in terms of our options for wedding photography had we stayed in the immediate area of the church, but just crossing the road provided us with a nice environment to work with. Sometimes a little effort goes a long way!

Geek info: Canon EOS-1D X with EF 70-200 f/2.8 L IS II USM @ 168 mm, f/2.8 ISO 400 1/1250 sec

OK, so the "Image of the Week" thing got a bit beyond me in 2012. I will endeavour to do better in 2013! I know I get a lot of feedback from people when I post these, so thanks to everyone for their comments. I'm glad people other than myself get something out of it! Not your typical wedding photograph this, but one that jumped out at me when editing a recent wedding and which appeals to me specifically because it is a bit different. Sometimes, I feel that as wedding photographers, we run the risk of getting stuck in a rut of trotting out of the same cookie-cutter images time and time again. It's a fine line we walk between pleasing our cl ...
