We Do Not Shooting WEDDINGS!

Katie seemed to be having a beautiful day as a bride. Wait, what is that coming out of the corner? Oh no, it can’t be. 

Oh yes, it can. Too late Katie. Time to get splattered in horror!

This video makes me want to make a Bridezilla Police division. Anytime I hear a call from a makeup artist that she’s dealing with a bridezilla, I will immediately come on set and splatter her and take off. lol

The whole sequence is less than a second in actual time. Katey had no idea what was about to hit her as you can tell from her genuine horror…. We used gloss paint to get the right effect but it meant the dress, shoes and underwear were a write off and the other girls had to scrub Katey with spirits and hose her down (naked) for about 20 mins to get all the paint out of everywhere… Hell, that’s a whole other movie. Sorry Katie, I hope you know it was worth it ;)
We were using a $120,000 Vision Research Phantom HD slow motion camera shooting to a 120 gig ram stack at 1000frames per second, the lens was a 50mm Carl Zeiss Planar T* f1.4 at F2.

Uncle Bob vs A Professional Wedding Photographer

So you’re about to have a wedding, or you’ve seen your relatives at a wedding attempt to take images of the entire ceremony (probably in an attempt to replace having to hire a professional). 

What’s the main difference between a professional and “Uncle Bob”?

This article sums up the pros and cons of both sides. Although I am preaching to the choir, it’s pretty fun to read. 

Uncle Bob, stop getting in the way will you! The professionals are working.
