Some times things happen for a reason, and when they do it can happen quickly. Such is the case of me being contracted by Margie and Bernard Edwards to photograph their daughter's wedding. Within the matter of 2-3 days before Marliese's wedding, Dana and I were asked to show up at the beautiful Westin Resort & Spa in Hallandale Beach to cover the event. It was an outside wedding at sunset, and the ambiance of the resort was awe-inspiring with twilight adding a spectacular moment for a wedding.
Admittedly, shooting outside at sunset is tough! Basically, light from our flash units simply flies out into infinity and is lost forever leaving whatever is illuminated standing out in stark darkness. However, I used some unique camera techniques I've learned over the years coupled with my own post-production enhancements to come up with some stunning images of the ceremony. In addition, to show you how beautiful the resort is, I've included at the end of this blog several panoramas like the ones we frequently shoot at our weddings.
Thanks, Marliese and Joel, for quickly asking us to be your photographers. The experience was exhilarating and magnificent. I hope you feel the same way about your wedding images. Check out the slide show below to sample the entire wedding
