Kimberly and Danny - Day After Shoot

We had the pleasure of spending the day with Kimberly and Danny photographing their "Day After" photo session... Well, it was actually about a month and a half after their wedding!

Anticipating this shoot, we were able to scout a ton of locations before the day arrived. We journeyed all over San Francisco photographing them in some very inspiring scenes... Kimberly had a tough time getting in and out of the car with her dress as we photographed them at 5 different locations throughout the day - They were real troopers! We ended the day at Baker Beach with a celebratory bottle of Champagne at sunset. It was very reminiscent of our engagement session we had in Pebble Beach only a few months ago... Thanks Kimberly and Danny for such a GREAT day!

Garrett or Matt would you mind sharing if you used a flash for the GGB photos?

Matt Reoch said...

Thank you for all of the compliments! We had such a great time and the light was perfect for the Baker Beach session.

Carrie, to answer your question - We did not shoot flash at all. We try desperately to avoid flash unless it is absolutely necessary.
We were at Baker beach just as the sun was setting at about 6PM. We had only about 20 minutes to capture what we needed. For the GGB shots, we started at about 320 ISO and ended up at about 1000 ISO for the Champagne photos. The light fell away very quickly. We LOVE this time of day for shooting. The quality of light is so smooth and elegant. But, I do have to say that another key to achieving this look is to use fast, fixed focal length lenses. We were using the Canon 50mm f/1.2L USM and the Canon 85mm f/1.2L USM lenses, wide open. The focus is a little slow and difficult sometimes with these lenses. But when its in focus, you just can't beat these lenses!

thanks Matt. the only lens I currently have and use is the Canon 50 mm 1.4 and I just feel like my photos are so grainy at this time of day as I continue to bump up my ISO. I will be shooting my first wedding at night next month, so will just have to keep working at it...and take lots and lots of photos!
