Posted 20 September 2014 - 03:48 PM

I shot this wedding last weekend which was suppose to start at 6pm CST. Well the hairdresser was from out of state and his truck broke so he took a bus that got him a 3 hour delay. Needless to say it was

7:45pm-7:48pm CST when the actual ceremony got started. So I wound up shooting the ceremony and the reception in the dark.. Thought I would put up a few of them since I have em.

I too apologize.  Did you post this in Sept. ?The youngster is perfect.  I feel your pain.  I shot a wedding last month where the preacher didn't show up. They literally had to find one at the last minute.  The wedding was later starting by several hours.

No worries chas. Yeah this was back last fall. If it had started on time it would of been nice but instead I was scrambling to make shots work as best I knew how. You also find out how well your setup holds colors true. All in all is was fun.. just dark as heck..lol

Compasiune, lighting for the night and dusk shot was just 1 SB800 on camera. The daylight shots were no flash in most cases.

Also thank you!!

I missed this as well, how did that happen??

Well done.

If I can offer a piece of advice (and I am just learning....), you need another flash, both units off camera. It would help kill the shadows and light your subjects up more evenly.

I am like Jim, don't think I will ever do weddings! Way too much on the line and too much pressure!

I missed this as well, how did that happen??

Well done.

If I can offer a piece of advice (and I am just learning....), you need another flash, both units off camera. It would help kill the shadows and light your subjects up more evenly.

I am like Jim, don't think I will ever do weddings! Way too much on the line and too much pressure!

Heeey Art!!!

 

Advice note, I'm not a wedding photographer though. At the end of the day I don't do them but I wound up taking this as a job because the people that got remarried asked for like 3 months. I finally broke down and agreed as long at I could shoot the event in a casual manner (I decided what was important). I never had done a wedding prior to this so I was really concerned with color shifting. As a matter of fact I went to the wedding with 2(two) Nikon D2Xs packed for the job, so I was majorly apprehensive about what would happen. 

 

The bride was like 4 hours late because the hairstylist was from out of sate and had a transportation snafu. So initially what was suppose to be a daylight wedding wound up as a night time adventure....lol I had to adapt to the fact that the sun was going to sleep, and that my SB 800 was about to replace it. The last photo I snapped was around 10:30 pm, I learned quite a but since normally I use the 800 as a fill light to tone down shadows.

 

Most times I shoot sports and commercial/industrial. This year its was almost all sports for several organizations as well as being picked up  as team photographer for a high school girls program.

 

 If I had a choice I would have to shoot lighting off camera axis, but I chalk that up to shoulda, coulda, woulda now! I'm pretty sure I have had my one and only share of weddings...hahahaha!!

 

Thanks much for the advice..

I've done over 30 or so weddings and I stopped doing them because of stressful stuff like this. I wasn't doing them to really make money so it was easy to stop.

 

Again Greg I think you did a very nice job.

Hi Jim, 

 

 That is why I leave it to the people that like doing them. I hear u on the stress part for sure, and weddings can run you way past your time that u were hired from what i see.

 

Thanks again for the compliment. That means a lot from someone that has done weddings for a good while

Overtime is standard with weddings. I had several that I should have only been there for 4 or 5 hours and it turned out closer to 10. One even held the reception 2 hours from the church go figure I was silly to even accept that one.

 

Then there's the one that was in a Hip Hop club that with the lights on it was pitch dark and had strobe signs we could turn off!  :unsure:

 

Now I stick to parties and minor events no weddings except the one I did a few weeks ago for a friend it was just the bride and groom at the justice of the peace that was all of 30 minutes! ;)

Man Jim did they ever keep you busy. Your experience with a 2 hour drive for a reception is insanity at its wedding finest imo.
