Jasmin and Jerome's Wedding

commentator: monica

what a lovely wedding for a lovely couple... the day started out catching a few shots of jerome and his groomsmen before we headed to the union hotel in benicia, an historic hotel built in the 1800s and recently reopened within the last few years, where jasmin and her mom and bridesmaids prepped for the big day. jasmin was as calm as a cucumber and was looking gorgeous! her choice in hotel accommodations definitely complemented the reception venue to come after the ceremony.

then, off to st. vincent's ferrer parish we went to meet up with jerome and his guys. they were a fun bunch to be around and seemed to love being in front of the camera.

the admiral's mansion on mare island is one of the several mansions that line the main street, once used as housing for the naval officers and their families before the closing of the base. reminiscent of old plantation days and "gone with the wind," we were sure to take advantage of the architecture outside the mansion, as well as the decor inside. the reception was held outside in the garden dedicated to mare island's official gardener. what a beautiful location and such great weather for a wedding in august.

congratulations, jasmin & jerome! can't wait for your aftershoot next month. =)

These are awesome Ed. I really enjoyed second shooting with you and I learn a lot. You are an amazing photographer.

Your use of light is great, Ed, and I love the colors. The last shot is especially creative... I'm a little distracted by the stained glass windows in the 1st one, but it's still a very good shot.

(Gotta say I've done the saltshaker/ring thing as well, but never with as much success as you have here.)

Ed! Good job dude!!
Where did I see this post before? OSP? (wink)

i've been getting a lot of PM's asking what the rings are on... would anybody like to take a guess before i spill the beans?

Pepper shaker?

Anonymous Jared Bludsworth said...

salt shaker? haha
Is there anyway you could explain how you got that last shot?

what lens did you use for the ring shot?

Blogger ed pingol said...

salt shaker - correct.

for ringshots like the one above, i use a modified 18-55mm efs kit lens. i'll take a picture and try to explain later.

for the last shot, we took a 3.5 second exposure set to black ambient... popped 3 flashes manually as she made her way to the groom and popped a stronger flash from a different strobe flash to finish the shot. we took 2 trys and 2 test... finished the shot in 4 minutest to go back to the party.

we had to pre-focus before shooting because we were in a room that was almost completely dark.

hope that helped.
