H+M Wedding No.03H+M Wedding No.03

Two weeks ago I had the privilege of shooting the wedding photos of a young couple. Other than being a great experience all round, it also made for the perfect opportunity to test out my "new" lens, the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L IS USM.

The 70-200mm f/2.8 really came to it's right in the church and I have to say that I am very pleased with my recent acquisition. During the actual wedding photos I used the Canon EF 50mm f/1.4 IS USM which never seem to let me down.

The wedding shoot was carried out at Vallø Castle, a small and still fully functional castle in the middle of the danish countryside, surrounded by a gorgeous park about to change into it's fall colors. In this post are featured some of the shots that I am particularly happy with from that day and we even ended up getting some really good results using the Brenizer technique (see my previous post Brenizer for a short introduction to the technique), an example of which can be seen below.

For some of the shots I also got to use my homemade "Flash Pole", constructed from a regular 3-4 meter telescope pole used for painting ceilings, a machined flash adaptor (for which I will put up drawings in a future post) and a standard flash shoe bracket. The shot where the bride is leaning against the tree is taken with this contraption, getting the flash in between the camera and her about 3 meters up, held by a helper. My idea with the shot was to underexpose the surroundings by about 1-2 stops, really making her stand out and giving a fairy tale look.
