Open Season

Wedding season that is. Had my first wedding of the season on Saturday and what a blast it was. The couple was great and were more than happy to entertain co-photog BRYAN KRYSZEWSKI and I's photo requests. (click his name to see more of his work)

I have been seeing a lot of really cool work done with long exposures and light painting so I thought I would give it a shot. Bryan helped out with the lighting on it and after a few test shots sans the couple, we brought them out and nailed it first go. Shocking I know.

The reception was in Downtown Naperville which was cool because I had home field advantage knowing some good spots. We hit up a park with what is a sled hill for six months of the year, but provides a great area with a clean background for the rest of the year.
I set up the bridal party while Bryan was working with the Bride and Groom. I had them walk through the shadow to get some good light on their face and right as I started shooting this kid ran by and jumped. I missed it the first time, but took off after him and made him come back and do it again.
Looking forward to an awesome season!
