Recently I had the pleasure of photographing Ilyssa and Craigs wedding at the Delray Beach Marriott. I really enjoyed photographing this wedding. Even though the weather repost said rain, the weather cooperated long enough for us to head outdoors to create some nice wedding photos. In this post are just a few of my favorite photos from their fun Delray Beach Wedding.
BELOW: VINTAGE LOOKING PHOTO.
Whenever, I photograph a South Florida Wedding I alway make time to scout around the hotel for new photography locations. Having shot many weddings at the Delray Beach Marriott, I found this old style wine cabinet. I just loved the look of this, so I figured a few photos are in order. I put a small light behind the brides veil and we played with a few poses. Later, I added the scratches and a blue tone to the shadows to create some interest.
This one was taken after the ceremony just a few minutes before we lost the light completely. There is a walking path that starts across the street from the Delray Beach Marriott and leads to the beach. I loved how the scene with the path looked in the evening light. I visioned this shot with the brides veil blowing behind her as she walked. The shot is what I call posed action. I set them up so that the groom (Craig) walked ahead of Ilyssa (The Bride). Since there was a bit of distance between the bride and groom I used a telephoto lens to compress the two if them together. As soon as they started walking it became apparent that the brides veil would not blow behind her the way I thought it would. So during the next pass Ilyssa flapped her arm back and forth which did the job perfectly. I added a small amount of sepia which gave this photo a bit of a vintage look.
BELOW: The purpose of this photo is to show off the brides gown. By putting her back toward the lens and the groom facing the camera I was able to show her gown and her face as well as his face. (Or Part of his face.). In addition I have a photography rule, the bride always looks into the light if possible.
This wedding picture was taken right at after the the bride and groom walking photo was taken. The bride and groom really wanted to get in a few last minute South Florida Beach Photos after the ceremony. The second the wedding ceremony ended we left the Delray Beach Marriott and headed across the street to the beach for these photos. The sun was already down and we only had the last bits of sunlight left. Because of this I had to work fast. In addition both Ilyssa and Craig wanted to get back the to cocktail hour before it ended
