This wedding cake from a few years ago at the Old Red Courthouse in Dallas is one I’m fond of. Part of the fun of being a wedding photographer is the high energy use of creativity on the go. Wedding photography is not about magazine spreads and details, it’s about people, moments and family history in the making. However, it is my job to preserve all of the really cool details and photograph them in a way your average joe won’t.
For this shot I had a Nikon SB-800 bungee corded at camera right. You can see the light source coming straight across the frame from right to left. The off camera flash was controlled with Nikon’s awesome wireless creative light system.
