Default A Few Formals From Wisconsin Wedding

Here are some of the formals from the wedding we did a couple of weeks ago. I chose to shoot with the 24 - 70, probably would have gotten a tad more sharpness had I used the 70 - 200, but overall, sharpness seems okay. Tripod and cable release, of course. Was working to bring in that ambient light behind them.

I know the ones in front of the fireplace have all those candlesticks and...well...what are you going to do. This wedding was shot in a banquet hall at Eagle Resort. I could have done the formals in the "church" portion of the banquet hall, but there were two horrific windows overlooking the snow covered parking lot that would have created havoc.

Thank you very much. Sarah and I do a mix of traditional and photojournalism when we shoot.

I appreciate the comments.

Scott, we were in your neck of the woods, I think.

Scott, I couldn't believe the proliferation of snowmobiles! Quite a culture, to say the least.

Thanks for stopping by Tina! I need to go visit portraits and see what's happening over there. Life is short, time is shorter.
