Just Married

My good friend Richard got married last week and entrusted me with being his wedding photographer. The wedding itself took place in downtown Los Angeles at Albertson Wedding Chapel. It was a nice place and they didn’t want it to be too big so it all worked out. After the wedding, they had decided that they wanted to take some photos at the LACMA urban lights. I had been to this location several times before for other photo opportunities and I absolutely love it. Only problem is, is that it is often packed with people. This night was no different. Fortunately enough, I was able to get around that by moving around and being a little more creative with some of the angles I used in other photos that I took. This photo here is probably my favorite one out of the set. I feel like it really makes them stand out and has a movie feel to it. Funny enough, this was one of the first photos we took when we got there. I tried to keep the photos for the actual ceremony as natural as possible, whereas I really wanted to make these stand out and catch their attention. Still, I didn’t have to do too much post-processing to get these where I wanted them. Although this photo is in color, several of the other ones in the set are black and white and I found that a very handy plug-in for black and white wedding photos…or any in general, is Nik Silver Efex Pro. There was no bracketing on these. Just one photos and several adjustments in Lightroom and Photoshop. Perhaps the most difficult thing about shooting here was the higher ISO that I needed to use with my D7000. But fortunately the camera seemed to handle it pretty well. Hope you like the results!
