Surprisingly, I only got down to Monterey a few times in 2009. I hope to be down there much more in 2010 and beyond. I really don’t mind traveling that far. Here are some really nice wedding photos I took at the Monterey Plaza Hotel back in 2007. This couple was so nice, I really enjoyed working with them. I love being able to reflect back on past weddings and smile and remember how nice the bride and groom were to work with. So while these wedding pics are considered old in terms of technology, the style and emotion of my work is clearly evident back then.
The bride gets ready up in her suite. This is actually true black and white film.
some of my special cake shots. Actually, the cake shot is one of the RARE posed shots I take at the reception as I mainly do all run and gun photo journalism at the wedding reception.
I like me some shadow play
I love how the twinkling lights in the background helped tell the story. The backgrounds are what separates the men from the boys so to speak. That is to say, a great wedding photographer will always use the background to help tell the story. Not so much on the turn and burn stuff, but especially on anything that is posed and well thought out.
If you plan on having your wedding down in the Monterey Bay area please contact me right away. I have experience at many wedding venues in Monterey and I have been to the Monterey Plaza Hotel at least half a dozen times.
