Low light and flashes
I want to show you guys a few different uses of flahses for a recent wedding
I wanted to take a few examples from a recent wedding that I shot in 2021 to show you guys a few different ways that I use flashes in lowlight to help me take some extra fun photos.
This couple reached out to me earlier in the year so our first meeting was on a rainy day in a cafe in the little town of camas. Their engagement shoot was on top of a mountain 3 hours from there. And the wedding was another hour away from the mountain. So being 3-4 hours of driving away from home I definitely needed to make sure that I was ready for any lighting scenario.
I normally have two lights that I use during a wedding but you have to take the environment into consideration when this is on the table. One problem that I ran into recently was the issue of my seven-foot umbrella being blown over by the wind. My gear is pretty tough but that is not something that you want heading to the ground with kids and even adults running around.
And not a set of photos is complete without the classic light behind the couple shot. This is a technique that I used very early in my photo career and I am happy to say that it was been improved since then to bring in a little bit more of the environment.
I hope you guys enjoy the rest of the photos in this example. I delivered a few hundred with the use of flash at this wedding but there were the ones where there was an attempt to make the flash obvious. There is a lot in motion for 2022 but I hope t see you guys there!

Cake on the Mountain
An Idea sprung into a shoot
A few years ago I got the opportunity to work with both Aubrey and Michelle to produce some photos that highlight the desirability of her cakes. Michelle spent a majority of her initial time in the wedding industry as a dessert table and confectionary baker. But when it was time to move into wedding cakes, we got to talking about a photoshoot. The concept was relatively straightforward, we really wanted to let the cakes and environment work together for an aesthetic illustration of products. I hope you guys enjoy this small journal as they are a step in a new direction for the website. I have over 300,000 images in my catalogue and I plan to have more of them seen over the next few years! Here is to a very exciting 2022.
Kelsee and Jordan
In the Presence of great people
Have you ever been in the presence of people that are just excited to be there as you are? It’s been a tough last few years for everyone around and this couple approached me right as things were getting hairy with the world situation. But the name of the game was to adapt and make the best wedding possible, something that we have gotten pretty good at over the last two years. Friends and family came along to celebrate with Kelsee and Jordan in a lovely ceremony. I had a great time being with them at the park that was built for wedding ceremonies in central Oregon. If anything I wish I had more time to explore the area, quiet farmlands surrounded us The adventure started a year earlier and I was very excited to see the wedding day come closer and closer.
One of the best parts of the day was getting to know everyone that came to the wedding and could be part of the celebration.
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”
― Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
