Shooting a wedding is no easy task.
Any photographer will share with you the multitude of difficult situations that can occur. The day is extremely long, your feet become tired, your back becomes sore, and even your arms become shaky towards the end of the night.
This wedding for Jennifer and Vaughn went about as smooth as any photographer could hope.
This wedding for Jennifer and Vaughn went about as smooth as any photographer could hope. The weather was pleasant and mild, the staff between the church, reception hall, and band were helpful and communicative, and the bride and groom were a pleasure to shoot.

The ceremony took place at St. James Episcopal Church in Goshen, NY. The reception was held at Winding Hills Golf Course in Montgomery, NY. The golf course is an absolutely beautifully maintained course with a nice reception hall and outdoor tent.
There was a special place on the golf course specifically tailored for wedding photos, and it made for an easy and simple backdrop.

With each job I go on, I tend to learn something new.
With each job I go on, I tend to learn something new. This was the first time I was using two DSLR’s at the same time. I had recently purchased the Canon 5D Mark III, and also used my Canon 5D Mark II. I learned carrying two cameras, with lenses is more draining than it sounds after 12 hours. I used a 70-200MM F2.8 II IS lens on the Mark III, and used my 24-105 on the Mark II body.

Another thing I learned shooting with two cameras, and taking nearly 3000 pictures was to sync the clock. I will make a separate blog about the importance of syncing clocks between cameras on a shoot (including assistants or 2nd shooters).
I will also share in another post my neurotic method to backing up pictures!
