jen & ron's wedding

commentator: monica

our usual clients love photos more than the average. jen, is one who "throws the curve off" and has an undeniable, incurable photo fetish. (seriously, she even updated her myspace page with photos from her wedding in less than 24 hours!) and as much as she loves taking pictures, she loves the color red, which was included prominently in the wedding decor of their wedding. she even had red trim on her dress and veil and even her shoes were red! jen & ron were wed on a gorgeous day at rancho solano in fairfield, ca.

we started our day off by photographing ron during the "downtime" of the morning. the groom's prep place is usually pretty quiet and ron's was even more quiet since he put on the last few pieces of his attire in his parents' backyard. with the entire outfit white, we made sure to include some color in the backgrounds.

the brides' prep place, of course, is much more of a bustling scenario and jen's was no different, as not only were her bridesmaids there but it became the meeting spot for her extended family and the groom and groomsmen to catch a ride to the venue. fortunately, the lovely couple's home, which they recently purchased, is large enough to accommodate lots of people and a couple of sneaky cats who were too curious to stay in their designated room.

their beautiful, heartfelt ceremony was followed by a quick trip to the lake, under the willow tree, which is a scenic spot for all the weddings at rancho solano. and to make our trip even quicker, we were given the keys to borrow two golf carts to drive around the course. sweet!

the reception included lots of festivities with a surprise hula performance by chelsea, one of jen's bridesmaids (whose wedding we'll be shooting next year), live entertainment provided by jen's dad's band, and even a solo number sung excellently by the multi-talented jen. it seemed like the fun would never end, with the dance floor full the entire night. jen & ron definitely know how to throw a party!

congratulations, jen & ron! hope you had an awesome time on maui!

Lovely. How in the world did you get that ring shot so sharp at f2.8? Tripod or was that the "lucky" you mentioned (which I doubt, of course, I'm just being silly)?

Great shots Ed!!!

Ed! i love the info you give. I'm just curious do you shoot in AP mode? and then also do you find that you have to clone out sensor dust when you shoot outside backlit at small apertures? I tried a shot last week where I slowed the shutter down to 1/15 to blur a train going by the couple, set the aperture at f/14 and had about 6 dust spots scattered thoughout the sky and a bunch of noise...

That's the crispest ring image I've ever seen posted on here.

Ditto on the ring picture - very lovely. In truth all of the pics are fabulous.

hi nick-

wow, you guys are fast. i shoot mainly in manual mode... that way, i always know what the camera is doing. generally, when i'm shooting images with apertures between f/13-22 i use a camera with a freshly cleaned sensor. = ) if you have small dust spots, you simply just go in and fix with the many tools that photoshop offers.

Manual mode? Man, how do you guys do that? Do you use the in-camera meter to verify your settings at all or do you just know what exposure settings to use for a particular scene? I don't think I could ever think that quickly on my feet. It's hard enough to compose a decent shot, let alone figure out the exposure in my head. Almost the only time I ever use M is when shooting flash at night and letting E-TTL handle the flash output level.

And what's "lucky" about these shots? Looks like all skill to me Note to self: get serious about learning how to use off-camera flash.
