Sally and Brian's wedding day was a dream. This evening outdoors at Vulcan was simple, laid-back, fun, and just plain nice. The bride and groom put together a day that reflected exactly what they wanted: a short and sweet outdoor ceremony where they were wed by one of their good friends, yummy food for dinner, and then a dance party under the stars. This wedding was a perfect example of being unembellished in the best way: Sally and Brian just wanted to hang with their friends and family to celebrate their new marriage.
Rebecca and Jason's wedding at The Nest in downtown Birmingham had all the accoutrements of a fantastic house party, which was exactly the ambiance they sought. They wanted guests to feel like they'd been welcomed into their home for a special night. Jason poured champagne as guests arrived, and he and Rebecca greeted friends and family with big hugs. The evening was full of laughter and warm embraces, and was such a fitting celebration for such a welcoming, friendly couple.
One day a while back, I was having a beer at Trim Tab and thinking how absolutely perfect the light from the setting sun looked through a thin veil of haze. I sent out text messages to friends: "The light is perfect but we have to act fast! Who can I take a photo of?"
Dom came to the rescue, and ended up being dressed, to my delight, to perfectly match the setting. I've been playing around with different films lately, and these images are either taken on 35mm Fuji Velvia 100F or digitals edited using the Velvia 100F preset from VSCO. Can you tell which is which?
