The Image Is Found | Photo of the Month for December




Congratulations to Nate and Jaclyn Kaiser of The Image Is Found Photography for winning the Wedding Photo of the Month of December!

"This image proves that whole "no pain, no gain" theory. angel and erik braved freezing temperatures, high winds, and even some rain to truck out into this field to play along with our vision for this image. we were all freezing, i was covered in stickers from the weeds, my shoes were covered in mud...but i didn't mind because i had the idea for this image running around in my head for months and i was so excited to see it finally come to life! a special thanks to angel for owning her dress and not letting it own her :)"

The Wiebners | Photo of the Month for November




Congratulations to Joel and Rita Wiebner of The Wiebners Photography for winning the the Wedding Photo of the Month for November.

Canon 5D Camera Body, Canon 35mm f1.4 lens, 1/60 sec shutter speed @f1.4, 1600 ISO

"As for the story, this image was taken by Joel, and it was in Philadelphia. This was a small wedding with only about 50 or so guests. The ceremony was small and was at the Shofusu Japanese Tea House - gorgeous place! After the ceremony, we did a bunch of portraits with the bride and groom - they did not have a wedding party, so we had a lot of time to play. They of course hired us for a creative and artistic viewpoint - we started out with some images at the Tea House then drove to this bridge that the bride and groom really loved. It was just after dark, and the lights of the bridge and the newly darkened sky made for some magic. For this specific shot, Joel had to take several tries, as cars kept coming and going over the bridge. We would wait for the traffic light to turn and then race out into the center of the bridge to grab the frames. This was the perfect one! We of course also photographed a bunch of funny in-between shots of our couple racing back and forth - it just added to the day!"

Bauman Photographers | Photo of the Month for October




Congratulations to Bauman Photographers for their Wedding Photo of the Month of October.

When we got to the reception, I saw the lighting that Cody, the groom, had put in place and I got very excited – he loves lighting and photography so I knew I had to deliver something really cool for him – I also saw the carpet and wanted to use it and knew that shooting into the bright lights would create a great effect. The shot was taken in front of the dance floor and we used the bright lights in the background to get that great rim light and lit them from the front with a diffused halogen spot. I love the red-carpet feel it generates...We tend to work very quickly so the whole shot probably only took about 3 minutes but uses the available surroundings to their fullest potential!
Camera settings: Canon 5D / 24-70mm@24mm - 1/25 sec at f3.2 ISO 1000

:e: Photography | Photo of the Month for December




Congratulations to Eric Laurits of :e: Photography for his December's Photography of the Month.
"Many of my brides opt to donate their dresses to the Brides Against Breast Cancer foundation. For those that do, we go out and about for a day shooting some really cool bridals in their dress. This isn't mom's wedding photography. On this particular day, Angela and I were traveling around Denver, CO and snapping some really great images. It was later in the day when we happened upon a old boxcar on a railroad track. As we parked the car and headed towards the tracks, the wind began to blow furiously and I quickly snapped off a few frames. I shot it with the Canon 5D and the 85mm f/1.2L... I'm thinking I shot it wide open at 1.2 and around 1/8000. I opened up the image in Photoshop and selectively applied 11 different textures to it - most of which I shot that day in Denver. There is something so free about being in love, isn't there?
