(Before and After) Wedding portrait using the Elinchrom Ranger Quadra

(Before and After) Wedding Portrait using the Elinchrom Ranger Quadra

As promised, here's a couple of photographs from the Wedding portrait held last Saturday. I intentionally took photos with and without flash to show ;

1. How harsh the sun is.

2. How good is it to have the flash on.

The heat

I have to admit that I often get overheated after a day of summer wedding. In this wedding, I went home after the first hour of reception. When I reached home at about 9pm, had my dinner, I have to had 2 panadols and went straight to bed. I had tried my best to stay out of the sun but the heat must have got into me. I already had more than 3 litres of water during the whole wedding and my body still can't cope well with the heat (annoying!).

I started using the flash in the portraits in the groom's place. Used it for the bride's and the bridal portrait session too. I am very impressed with the lightweight of the Quadra flash unit. I bought along with me the manfrotto tripod to hold the flash head. There is this once that the flash unit did not fire when it was behind a big tree, out of the sight from the skyport. The bridal party was happily smiling for me and I realised that the Quadra was not firing! Annoying x 2.

At the end of the wedding, the battery is still at 75% full.

Below is the photograph without the flash.

Geoff + Eliza | Engagement

Congratualtion to Geoff and Eliza on their Engagment | Engagement Photography Big Thanks to Brendon and Kimberly who recommend our engagement photography to Geoff and Eliza. Last Jan, Brendon and Kimberly had their Engagement session with us. Looking forward to Geoff and Eliza's wedding in 2014.

Engagement Photography is fun. Way more relax than the wedding day. No stress and it is a great way to remember the moments you have together. The most important thing is that you get to test your wedding photographer.

In Australia, Engagement Photography is often perceived as photographying in an Engagement party. Engagement Photography is really popular in the USA. In Asian countries, couples took photos before their wedding in their wedding gowns and suits. It's pre-wedding photography.

I planned the route before the exciting session. In my mind, I have already a set of ideas what sort of photos I want. Geoff and Eliza were happy and agreed to my plan. Sweet!

Our fun started in the Adelaide Botanic gardens and ended along North Terrace.

I always wanted to have a photo taken along this road with such lovely tunnel lights. My emphasis is always on safety. A police car drove past and I thought the car would stop and warn me not to stand around in the middle of the road. But nope... the car moved on... and the fun continued. 

The Adelaide library always has such a classic feel. This place is so.... quiet. I once dropped a pencil and I can hear the echo of the noise for seconds. Amazing.

I had Geoff and Eliza sneaked under the staircase while I climbed up few floors for this shot. pretty tight but Geoff and Eliza had done well.

 

Geoff and Eliza were placed in an awkward position but the effort is well worth for this photo below.
