Amanda

This is from one of several shoots I managed to sneak out for while in Las Vegas for WPPI. If you’re a wedding photographer stuck in the dark and frozen winter of Calgary, then going to the light and warmth of Vegas also carries a pretty strong temptation to bring along a camera and do a little shooting.

And if an event has a gorgeous young woman in a white dress (in this case Amanda), the event is professionally styled, decorated, dressed, adorned, and detailed… well, how can anyone say no?

The shoot started by taking advantage of the available light and colors of the outside of the Stirling Club – an incredibly awesome venue. Brides: if you want images like these, you should have your wedding in a place like this; it’s that simple. We moved indoors and I wanted to take advantage of the warm tones, but with the lower light I decided to amp it up with a more dramatic light. I ended the shoot with a little old school Hollywood glamour, which was pretty easy for Amanda to rock out to.

Over the next week I’ll have more of Amanda, more of the Stirling Club, and a few more couples. WPPI isn’t all just a big partaaaay – this is work. Really!

[Geek-out for my fellow photographers note: All the indoor images were at least partially lit with a single speedlight on a lightweight travel stand, fired from set of Radio Poppers. All manual, all the time, baby!]
