Wedding at the Breakers Resort in Myrtle Beach

Below are some samples from the first of my 3 weddings this past weekend, this one was at the Breakers Resort Palms Tower.  This constant heat we have been having is very exhausting.  All the weddings turned out really nice, so that is what is important.  Plus I can’t complain about having plenty of work right now, that is certainly a good thing.  I took a lot of really good shots of the bride getting tearful dancing with her father at the reception, I posted one below. Shots that capture emotion are of course the ones that really stand out. That is why I take pictures almost constantly, I’m always afraid I might miss something good.  I hope you enjoy these and I will put up more from the weekend once I get them ready.

Wedding at Marriott Resort and Spa, Myrtle Beach

Here are a few of the pictures from my wedding this past Sunday at the Marriott Resort and Spa at The Grande Dunes near the ocean in Myrtle Beach, that’s a long name for a location. The weather actually turned out to be perfect for the wedding. This couple was very easy to work with, I did engagement portraits with them previously that turned out really great as well.  There were actually a ton of pictures I liked, I tried to pick out a few to post on the blog.  I normally like my pictures really clean without a lot of silly Photoshop effects, the kind that I’ve noticed some photographers use to draw attention away from bad pictures.  If you see a short depth of field (blurry out of focus background) it’s being done in camera.  However one of the pictures below I used the Totally Rad Actions F-Zero action for a tilt shift lens effect.  It looks like something you might get from a Lens Baby without the trouble of using one, and I thought it really worked for that picture.  I hope you like the pictures, if you do don’t forget to click the Facebook like button above.

Traditional Indian bride sitting on floor looking up - Grande Dunes Members Club

Traditional Indian Wedding at the Grande Dunes Myrtle Beach

I did my first traditional Indian wedding at the Grande Dunes Members Club in Myrtle Beach.  It was an experience I’ll always remember and a really beautiful event. It’s amazing how intricate and heavy an Indian wedding dress is.  I loved how many colors there were during the ceremony with the bride’s dress and the flowers. I think my favorite shot was the bride walking down the aisle and the groom still hidden from her view. My new Nikon 70-200 f2.8 lens really makes this picture pop. I also loved the picture of the bride from overhead where you can see all the details …
