RGB

A few months back we had the privilege of teaching at After Dark Education in Tucson, AZ. One of Dan's classes took a rock band (girl group RGB) on location for a late night shoot with the purpose of thinking outside the box and experimenting with creative techniques and compositions to create high-impact images. Here's a look at how the images turned out:

Here's a behind the scenes look at the setup... We used Canon speedlights for our lighting, usually with gels appropriately colored to exaggerate the RGB theme:

These gals were great to work with, as was everybody that came to the class!

Emily & Mike

Emily and Mike's wedding unfolded on a beautiful Saturday in Minneapolis. Emily has an incredible eye for detail and filled the day with personal touches: everything from homemade wooden signs to a handkerchief made from both her grandmothers wedding dresses. Autumn vintage style emanated out of everything from flowers to reception venue and added immense charm to the experience. Emily and Mike's ceremony was at St. Peter's Catholic Church, where Emily attended school, and their reception was held at the fantastic Nicollet Island Pavilion. The pair was a blast to photograph because they have great senses of humor and chemistry. We captured a number of stellar portraits on the banks of the Mississippi between the ceremony and reception. We also need to give a shout out to the super cool wedding party (their lovely blurs featured below)! The dance floor was HOPPIN with energy and guests were given a show when Mike was iced by Emily as he went for her garter during the garter toss (it was epic)! At 10pm a gelato cart appeared next to the dance floor and guests were treated with Emily's favorite snack from her semester in Italy. We snuck out back with the couple for one last skyline portrait (below) at the end of the night.
