Wedding Photography and Getting Ready

Getting ready usually consists of shooting both the bride and the groom. Most times we will have two photographers. One for the bride and one for the groom. Shooting the groom and the groomsmen is an easy and fun affair and they tend to appreciate that I shoot quickly without asking too much from them. Usually they are amazed when I tell them we are all done.  The groom really wants to hang out with his friends and have a great time.

The groomsmen also want to hang out and have a great time. So a quick intro and a crappy joke to break the ice is usually all it takes before I start shooting and joining in with the fun. The groomsmen usually take anywhere from a half an hour to 45 minutes while the bride can take up to an hour to photograph. For the bride we typically arrive just before her hair and make up is finished. We get a couple of shots of the bride and the make up and hair artists. Then we start shooting a few beautiful portraits close to some window lighting. I usually follow that up with shooting the dress, Jewelry, invitation, and other details I can find.

Have to have details. Something we do a lot of while you are getting ready.

About the shot – Wedding photography

Framing the Bride and Groom with this window at the Rock Island Lake Club in Sparta NJ helps showcase the romance of the day. We used a flash and a trigger behind the newlyweds and exposed for the outside wall. Adding enough light inside without washing the color of the chandelier or up lighting of the venue. I liked the slight tilt of the window better than straight on.

The Rings

How To – Creative Wedding Ring Shots

By Wedding Photographer Jason Giordano

Always looking for new angles and fresh looks. I’ve been concentrating on the wedding rings lately.  Having shot thousands of weddings it can become  difficult to get out of your comfort zone and you can really fall into a pattern if you are not careful. Wedding Photography is a great outlet if you really enjoy people and have a knack for anticipating what people are about to do. I’m very well-known in the industry for my wedding photojournalism approach.  What most don’t know is how much I enjoy the creative side as well.  There is always time to do something different.

Wedding Ring

The Rose

The Rose & Wedding Rings

The Rose is fairly simple.  All about the lighting really.  Here I stood with the window at me back during sunset. The room was fairly dark and a few candles were lit in the distance.  I used a 105 macro lens @ f5.6 iso 800.  The difficult part was handholding the Rose in one hand and the camera in the other.  Keeping from shaking either hand was tough but I managed.

The above photo of the wedding rings was taken with the same lens same settings.  Candles again in the background but what you can’t see is the LED light that I use for videos!  The LED light has a set of barn doors and is placed directly above the rings.
