We decided to go a little more on the delicate side for this rough, beachy setting. She brought her purple gown she wore to prom, which mixed well with her red hair and the greenery in the backdrop, and created extremely satisfying pops of color!

 I was actually in the water, and had to bob up and down out of a squat as the waves were coming in, in order to avoid a soaked bum!

The G Master behaved beautifully. Looking at the monitor and watching the fall-off move so fluently across her face was breathtaking. 1.4, 1.7, 2.2 so crisp. 3.2?  just as you would expect from a lens of this caliber.

The next door neighbors unexpectedly got involved and surprised the couple by lighting up the night sky with fireworks!  Also... there was a fire-spinner, I'm just saying!

Everything was handmaid by the bride and her helpers.  And they were beautiful!!  The color scheme was one of my favorites, and the theme played hand in hand with the venue and the feel of the ceremony.

Orange Beach Sunset Portrait Shoot

Inspire me...and we will create something beautiful!

It had been a while since I had visited Orange beach, and I was excited to check it out again, this time...camera in hand.  Jess Boring had just recently moved back to Pensacola, Fl, from Ohio, and had somehow graciously allowed me to use her as a model for a portrait shoot.  

We could not have gotten luckier with the sunset and clouds.  My goodness they were gorgeous!!  I used High Speed Sync capable triggers and a monolight with a beauty dish attatched,  It was a real testament to my asssistant/lightholder/wife that she was able to keep from blowing away holding what may as well have been a heavy wind catcher!

But after a couple of days of rousing photo shoots with teddy bears and thumb rings, I decided to put some people to work.  It turns out the rotolight was beckoning for this type of attention.
