A remarkable day and a pretty sweet ending to 2013. On the 28th, Adam and Lauren exchanged vows at St.Paul’s Episcopal Church followed by a quick drive to The Esquire Tavern on the Riverwalk. An amazing couple surrounded by friends and family. What a day.
This wedding was one of the toughest challenges of the year utilizing available light. The winter brings angled and low, often flat light. Especially difficult was capturing the feel and warmth of the Esquire Tavern, an 80 year old bar and the longest in Texas, without using obtrusive annoying flash. Those of you who frequent this blog will know I do not use flash. Not that I don’t admire photographers who use it well, it’s just not a good fit for me as I find it can be quite unflattering when used hastily in a wedding environment. I want to photograph the day the wedding couple remembers it, with soul, warmth, character and authenticty.
Se, here are a few favorites, mostly captured with my Leica M and couple of Nikon’s when a different lens was required. Thanks go out to an extremely talented wedding planner, Stacey De Wine and Garry, manager of the tavern who made things easy for me.
