Wedding Photography New York { Jan and Andrew }

Wedding Photographer in New York

First off if you’re looking for an wedding photographer take a look at my new york wedding photography portfolio.

So here are some more shots from Jan and Andrews wedding.  I’ve been working a ton on these shots, because they are so much fun to work on.  I swear I’ve actually been smiling when I look at some of these shots.  This was such a great opportunity to work under pressure, and with little preparation.  It was great for me to experience what it’s like to shoot a wedding, and learn what I can and can’t do.  Rarely do I shoot this many people all at once, and it was definitely a challenge to get everyone smiling, eyes open, and looking at the camera.

While developing these shots I put a lot of work into coming up with what I would refer to as a very traditional wedding look.  Well I guess it’s a little modern, but you know what I mean.  Vibrant colors, slight vignette, and high contrast.  I’m happy that I put the work in to figure out what the other wedding photographers were doing to come up with that kind of look, because I think it will make my post production on a lot shots much easier, and give them that great wedding photography feel.  This shoot made me start thinking about becoming a New York wedding photographer.  Or at the very least becoming a candid man for another good New York wedding photographer.

For both these shots, and I’m sure some of the ones to follow I created a preset in lightroom to get the kinds of colors I was looking for.  Slight vintage, and yet colors that really pop, and skin that looks smooth, and not over colored.  I’m starting to think that maybe I should turn the “vivid” coloring off in my camera, because I think it’s over saturating things on the orange side.  We’ll see if I do that, but I need to do more experiments first.

They were such a cute couple to take pictures of.  It was nice to work with a couple that was so obviously comfortable with each other.  They had no problem getting close and snuggling up to each other.  That made everything so much easier.  If I do become a New York wedding photographer it’s going to be hard to always find couples so at ease on a big day like this, and who can hold smiles like this for hours on end.

This shot was all their idea, and it turned out great.  Everyone was having such a blast that day.

The Rings Wedding Photography

I think this was the shot they were most excited about.  I’m so used to doing engagement photography where there is only one ring involved that my usual tricks didn’t work.  I had to come up with something creative, so this is what I came up with.  I have a feeling I’ll be doing this shot again for another couple, just because I love the way it turned out.

Anyways I hope you like them so far.  There are a ton of other ones, and I might post more as time goes on, but I want Jan and Andrew to have some surprises as they are looking through the pictures, so I don’t want to post them all just yet.

Hope ya like em,

    Very nice work, Dave! Especially for your first time under the gun – it’s definitely a different feeling than the more controlled studio work. I’m sure they’ll be very happy with these shots!
