It has been a while since I photographed with my buddy – Gavin – and he recently graced me with another opportunity. The previous time I photographed with him was at the Hollywood Yamashiro Restaurant in Hollywood.
Since we are currently at the peak of our wedding photography season, I have been doing nothing but post-production work during the weekdays. I wanted a respite from behind the monitor and to go shoot a few rounds at a wedding with a crony. I was so fortunate that Dru and George warmly welcomed me to their wedding of which was very beautiful.
Dru and George hosted their wedding at Faulkner Winery in Temecula, CA. The winery provided many great opportunities to take gorgeous pictures! I took advantage of every chance – green vines, rustic oak barrels, colorful walls and the works! Check out some of the pictures 🙂
That is Faulkner Winery from afar.
They had a full Mariachi band playing during their ceremony and part of the reception 😀
Twice the bouquet power! I absolutely dig the feathers.
This is one of my favorite shots. It took me a few minutes to setup, but it was well worth it. This was a two-point lighting – one in the back at 1/8 power and one in the front at 1/64 power. Dru looks angelic!
This is my other favorite one! Gavin and I photographed this in between the Cabernet vines around sunset. The warm yellow glow coupled with the vines made the perfect backdrop.
This is Gavin and his three cameras! A-Okay ;D
With the help of Gavin’s awesome Alienbee setup in the back of the reception, I used it as a powerful back light. BAM! That strobe poured light into the entire winery.
We did a quick shot before we left Faulkner Winery where they make their wines in oak barrels.
Anyway, it is time for me to go to Disneyland, so see you all later. We have like $%^(*& more weddings to post so just hang in there ;D We dedicate a lot of time on every image.
