After their engagement shoot last year I knew this would be an incredibly fun wedding and it certainly lived up to my expectations. Wow! They and all their friends and family really put on a show dancing and partying like rock stars. Chris, my second camera that day said, “They were the best dancers he’s ever seen at any wedding.” They just had fun from the oldest to the very young they all celebrated the marriage of this beautiful couple well into the night.

Also, I completed my first Brenizer-method stitch of 41 images using my 50mm at F1.6. The photo is the first in the slideshow above.

First attempt Brenizer Method

Brenizer MethodBrenizer Method
My first attempt at using the Brenizer Method. According to his site and Wikipedia it is “photographic technique developed by wedding photographer Ryan Brenizer. It allows for the creation of an image exhibiting a shallow depth of field in tandem with a wide angle of view by use of panoramic stitching techniques in portraiture. The combination of these characteristics enables a photographer to mimic the look of a large format photographic system with equipment that is generally more easily and cheaply available, such as a digital SLR or even a camera phone. The method increases the effective sensor size of the camera, much like the larger negatives in medium and large format photography.”

I first tried it out on my daughter Dharma in our yard here in the woods of Central, Mass. and then next at a little wedding out on the Cape. His tutorial is great and I recommend it highly, if just to get it down and be able to refer back to it as often as possible. The image with Dharma is from 46 images shot with my 70-200mm at f/2.8. Brenizer has some geek way of calculating the f-stop of the merged image but that is beyond me at this point. The photo with Katie and Doug is shot with an 85mm at f/2. More to come–I’ve got to break out of the vertical format.

Whenever a couple of mine chooses The Lyman Estate for their wedding I know instantly what kind of people they are–and that’s the BEST kind. This is such a great place for a classic New England Wedding. The outdoor grounds are fun for ceremonies, games and portrait sessions and the wrap around deck makes a great spot for toasts and cocktails.

Beth and Hoa had such a fun little wedding nestled in the main ballroom. We shot outside for some great evening light and danced the night away.
