The Long Awaited Wedding Photos

Here are the rest of the wedding photos from May 2. I chose to make them black and white for my blog simply because I felt some of the photos look better in black and white. I don't feel like writing a lot right now and I have to go shoot another wedding soon, so enjoy...

Wedding #2

I shot my second wedding on Sunday.  I have decided that I really enjoy shooting weddings.  Yeah, it's a lot of pressure, but they're so much fun to shoot.  That being said, I'm glad I wasn't the solo shooter for this wedding.  I had some focusing issues in the group shots.  I've gone through all of the pictures I took, but have yet to tone them all.  As some of you know, I started a new job on Monday.  It's a toning job, so when I get home I'm not exactly excited to tone more pictures.  Actually, that's not true, I like toning my pictures, I'm just not used to getting up early for work yet.  I toned some yesterday, but really don't feel like toning tonight. (Plus I have to watch Biggest Loser with the family).  I know this is a photo blog though, and I'm not sure how many people will actually read here are a few pictures I took:

The ceremony was at the Jewel Box, so we took pictures before hand in Forest Park.

As soon as I saw this gate, I knew I had to take this picture

This was my idea as well...I really wish that pole wasn't there. I suppose I could Photoshop it out, but it'd be difficult (not like the cars in the background).

One of the bridesmaids put her bouquet on the ground...she got in trouble for it, but I thought the stones made a nice background.

At the reception, they had a wall of these  diamond shaped mirrors by the dance floor.  I thought it'd be cool to shoot the reflection of them dancing.  I turned my on-camera flash towards the dancers (the groom and his mother) and then pointed my camera towards the mirror.  The flash was a little hot on the groom's face, but I was able to tone it down a bit in Photoshop.  I wish I had seen this shot earlier so I could've worked with it more. It would have been nice to have the bride and groom in this shot.
