bandC, In the Love-!

December 10th, 2008 @ 4:18 pm by John Edgar @ Still Motion

I’ll say this, we are pretty darn lucky. Rarely do we have couples who won’t do what we ask.. usually, there are limits, but they’ll do what we need them to in order to get the shot. Betsy and Chase have NO LIMITS (well ok, Betsy drew the line at the dead crow) and they were SUPER fun to work with. Chuck, the father of Chase hooked us up with this AMAZING photo session location and I shot my little heart out. Unfortunately we left Amina at home for this one so I shot alone, but Patrick was kind enough to come shoot with me during our second photo session location. It’s always great to have a second set of eyes. I’ve included a couple of his photos.

The location we had was a really neat old abandoned warehouse. Chuck and the whole family did a lot of work to get us in and we’re extremely grateful for that. It’s always nice to work with people who REALLY care about the location of their photography, doing something fun, unique and totally timeless to them. To create something unique on your wedding day, something you don’t see every day, that is something truly special. I believe that originality is what makes the imagery our couples receive theirs - art they are proud to call their own.

I have a great deal of respect for our couples. Betsy and Chase are no exception to this; they truly are amazing.

I’m very proud of Patrick; when he switched mediums he creates some great images:

Patrick and I shot this photograph to show how amazing the use of specialty lenses in wedding photography is when you know how to use them correctly. It can really add so much depth to an image and pull your eyes right to the subject.

John - very cool!! I love the upside down groom and the bride on the ladder - she almost looks suspended there because we can’t really see the ladder— which is what I think makes it even more compelling than the tilt-shift element (which is still cool). This is definitely a great example of what couples can accomplish if they want to put extended time and thought into their portrait session! Thanks for sharing!

Just for clarity - was this done on the wedding day or on another day?

I’m so in love with the tilt shift. It’s such a subtle way to add dimension to a photograph.
