Carol and Johann: 5.1.10

There were a thousand moments when I knew I was going to get along with Carol and Johann — this is a couple that spent their rehearsal dinner performing trapeze tricks, after all — but I will always remember when he looked over my shoulder at a nearby wedding photographer and said “Hey look! That guy’s using his flash wrong!” (Yes, yes he was. Sorry about your underexposed formals, Mystery Couple). I love that my Internet presence gives me so many couples with a strong passion for photography themselves, because we can work together on a number of levels, and because this might be their one chance to actually put down a camera and enjoy themselves.

Carol and Johann had a gorgeous day at the Hyatt Harborside in Boston, the sun blazing over the skyline. They also had a hilarious priest who, during the ceremony, told us fascinating bits of Boston history and started calling out to me to make sure everything looked OK. (I gave a thumbs up). The night was devoted to fun, dancing, two fabulous cakes, great family, and a finishing treat of Jones Soda.

Congratulations, Carol and Johann!

    Beautiful! I love the shot of them reflected against the mirror (?) or painting (?).

    You are inspiring as ever. The images you capture are so articulate and strikingly lit. Little bit too much sensor dust visable on the large group shot- but then freelensing can be addictive!

    Great stuff, as always, Ryan! I really dig those outdoor night portraits.

    I always love the moments you capture – beautiful work as always. I think the shot of them kissing with the reflection is my favorite from this set. :)

    Awesome, as usual. I adore the expressions you’ve captured here. Especially love the one where he’s got his hand on his hat and she’s looking away and the side by side shots of them after the ring exchange.

    Extraordinary work, Ryan! I really love the image that you shot through the guard rails! I have my first paid solo wedding next week. Thanks for all of the technical info in terms of how you capture great images. The quality of light that you are able to show is second to none. Those of us just getting started really appreciate all that you do!
