As a wedding photographer its not enough just to take the traditional ceremonial photos. Instead I like to capture the ambiance and true feelings. On Mike and Selumas western themed wedding day, I used less DOP (depth of field) on the subject and more silver highlighting just like the old box cameras did with the silver chloride paper that was used to take the photos. By taking this approach I was able to achieve a modern non blurry photos but still keep that western grit they had imagined. Additionally the landscape and rustic architecture of Mt. Madonna provided the perfect backdrop, and I was able to capture some wonderful wedding photographs of some really great people.
