We absolutely LOVED shooting Rebecca and David’s wedding!  It had a very classic vintage feel and the people were lovely inside and out.  And the lighting – mmm sweet light!  There was color and drama everywhere!  We shot so much that we actually killed our off camera flash.  The poor thing just got back a couple of weeks ago. 

 We’re trying to get better about posting features on a regular basis and this one actually has a slideshow but I thought I wouldn’t wait for that to post a few of my favorites.  If you’d like to see a slideshow of Rebecca and David’s fantastic wedding, give Sean a little nudge in the comments box below! ;)



















Thanks for looking! :)

    I think your reception and night photography are especially strong and have a signature look that no one else has. Way to go!

  17. mel on February 12, 2008 at 8:38 pm

    Thank you so much ladies! Jessica we miss you guys too! Do I hear a get together in the works? ;o) Libby – our low light work is something we’ve put a lot of effort into so it’s nice to hear that others can see the improvements as well! Thank you! :o)

    These images are beautiful, I love the 13th down with the bluish light! What did you use to capture that lighting?


  19. mel on February 13, 2008 at 12:49 pm

    Thanks Eric! The blue light actually isn’t blue at all – It’s a video light cast on a white wall. I tinted the wall to a blue hue in photoshop to create the mood I wanted.

  20. sean on February 13, 2008 at 12:53 pm

    Thanks, Eric! S E C R E T: Custom WB.

  21. mel on February 14, 2008 at 12:40 pm

    Eric – Sean is pulling your leg! I tell the truth. :o)

  22. sean on February 14, 2008 at 12:45 pm

    Ok, what she said. Usually we use custom WB.

  23. Asther on December 12, 2008 at 1:02 am

    The little girls hot are just so heart melting! And the photo of bride with father brought tears to my eyes. Love the emotions captured! Thanx!

    P/S: Pray you two are getting better as days go by…
