Who doesn't love a wedding where the best man is a dog?! This Buffalo Trace Wedding had just that!
The ceremony for Kaitlyn and Stephanie was under a large tree at Buffalo Trace Bourbon Distillery. The reception was in the clubhouse on site in Frankfort, Kentucky.
This wedding was one for the history books. It was warm and sunny all day. Then 30 minutes before the outdoor ceremony a dark rain cloud rolled in. But when you have such easy going and fun couples like me, it's nothing to worry about. The ceremony went on in the light rain and everything was perfect.
The couple supplied glow stick foam shakers for the party and it made for the best photos possible!
During dancing photos, I do what is called "dragging the shutter." This technique is where the image is captured for a little under a second. Those fun light streaks you see in my dancing photos? Dragging the shutter is why. This technique gives the photos a party feel that I believe shows off how people felt in that moment; (especially if they are drunk!)
I used a science prism to make the fun portraits of Stephanie with a rainbow glare.
I have in my fanny pack a lot of fun random tools that help make unique photos. Yes, I wear a fanny pack during weddings so I can have all these tools close by at all times. One of the tools stored in there is a science prism. You can hold this glass tool against my camera lens to reflect the light and transform it in to a rainbow or reflect the sky above us. I use this technique during portraits outside and first dances when the room has chandeliers or string lights hanging from the ceiling.
