Please share some of your formal wedding poses...

B&G and group shots...

I need to come up with some additional ideas for a wedding next week...

The wedding I'm shooting will be less formal then most... no tuxes... think of a beach wedding... except on a mountain.


THANKS!

Country wedding in the mountains.
Scout the area early and find good locations. Get permission to use private property.

The outside photos near the water and the ones of the girls near the window are with no flash. The one with the bride in the center isle is a SB-800 with a snoot handheld by the groom and to the left up high. It's controlled by a SU-800. The one with the bride against the barn is in shade and using a SB-800 and Demb Flip-It, the rest are the same setup. I use a Custom Bracket for the flash, it's one of the best brackets on the market IMO, but any bracket will work. I prefer the ones where the camera turns and the flash stays above the lens.

Outside I prefer Aperture priority and ISO 200. Inside with flash I use Manual 1/125 sec. and f/5.6 ISO 400 to start and increase ISO as it gets darker.

I have the Preview button set to "no flash" and I'll sometimes take two shots, one with and one without flash.

For formals on the altar I use two umbrellas with two SB-800 on each. I control them from the SU-800. Four SB-800's can light just about any size group.
I have the Function button set to "FV Lock" This eliminates people blinking, just remember to turn it off and reset it everytime the scene changes.
