Claremont Hotel Berkeley Wedding Photos

Just did a great wedding over at the Claremont Hotel Club and Spa. This is a great place to have your wedding especially in the winter as the inside of the hotel interior makes for great pictures.

Here, the bride gets ready in her hotel room upstairs.

It was raining this day but I managed to sneak the bridesmaids out on the deck for some pictures before the ceremony.

In addition to the standard poses like the one above, I also take some fun shots like the one below. Please note how natural the lighting is. I’m using mostly ambient light and only the tinyest bit of FLASH FILL to get the EYE LIGHT that I enjoy.

The ceremony takes place in one of the smaller banquet rooms.

Before I left, I took my requisite night shots complete with backlighting and the works. As you can see, my work is VERY creative. And while I do get many basic shots to fill the time, I am always doing something creative!
