Phil & Mary’s Wedding by Denver Wedding Photographer

Even so that we are now in 2016 I still wanted to write a blog about a wedding that happened last year and even though I am Denver Wedding Photographer which the wedding wasn’t in Denver but it’s not far from Denver so it should count.

Phil and Mary found me through online sources, and after that everything took off. They are a great couple which I really enjoyed photograph for. Sometimes a question that pops up through people that I know and also clients ask me: Do you filter through your clients for weddings? The simple answer is yes I do. Now with that said it doesn’t mean I turn every couple down but it does mean that if I see that the couple is not “compatable with me” I honestly don’t photograph for them. By the way this applies to everything portraits and weddings. But this is something which I will talk about in some other blog.

For now I want to talk about Phil and Mary and their wonderful wedding. The wedding took place at Meadows at Marshdale in Evergreen, CO and I want to say that I have never photographed at this location but loved it. The couple chose a great place for their romantic wedding. They have put a lot of effort and work to customize the venue to their wedding. Having two different places for the ceremony and reception was a great idea and the venue place does offer that to any couple. Phil and Mary’s ceremony was great, short and very entertaining especially thanks to their pastor and also want to mention the band which was playing all the music throughout the ceremony.

The reception was also fantastic, and fun. I am sure that when Phil and Mary will be looking back at their wedding they will be happy, and knowing it was memorable.

Fuji X-T1 Review by Shutter Avenue Photography

So now that I had my Fuji X-T1 with XF 10-24mm F4 IOS lens I can finally say something good and bad about it. But first off all just like good review of anything I will start with good part(s) about the camera and the lens.Fuji X-T1 and Fuji XF 10-24mm F4 IOS Review

Fuji X-T1 the good stuff:

I LOVE THIS CAMERA!!!! Sorry had to get it out of my system. By this time I photographed everything with it from Architecture, Interior Design, Real Estate to Portraits, Weddings and so on. It’s a bit smaller from a regular DSLR camera like Nikon D300 but it’s light weight. I love it that is light because when I was photographing my first wedding I didn’t even get tired from having two X-T1s’ on me. They are light, and fast. What I mean is: I would just have one on left side and one on right side of me and also so that I would not kill the battery so quickly (since I don’t have battery grip) I would turn it off and then when I needed to turn it on and it’s fast to do the job.

Fuji X-T1 and Fuji XF 10-24mm F4 IOS Review

The ISO on this camera is amazing and because of dynamic range option they have it is great. The image quality even with high ISO is just wow. Shooting photos at a wedding in dark rooms was a piece of cake. I didn’t have to worry that ISO will overwhelm the photos and I will need to do lots of post production to correct this issue.

Fuji X-T1 and Fuji XF 10-24mm F4 IOS Review

Now for Architectural photography, it’s even better. I love it that I can customize the white balance on this camera (meaning not only select the K value but also customize even that value if I want more or less blue, yellow, green and red). By this time some of you will say “Just shoot RAW”, well I could but if I can get it out of the camera right why waste hard drive space. Yet for interior design or specific architectural project I will shoot in RAW but for real estate photography, not even once.

The features of the camera lets me customize to my likings of how it should photograph to even specific buttons to do what I need them to do. Also the adjustable-tilt screen is fun to have. There are times in portrait or wedding photography where this is very beneficial. For real estate, architecture, interior photography not really since I use my iPad to photograph.

Fuji X-T1 not so good stuff:

Battery, battery, battery. They need to do something about this, I have no words to explain how the battery’s life is only good for short period of time (up to 300-500 photos if turning it on and off but is the camera is on all the time then maybe 3-4 hours before the batter starts to die).

Wi-Fi mode – good but only for short distances. I found out from out in the field testing I can get range from 50 feet to 200 feet depending if I am inside or outside the building. This is a good time to talk about Fuji X-T1 remote app. Its very hard to say lots of good stuff about it because it need major update. The app is slow sometimes, and you get only 25% of options while photographing from full potential of the camera. The best way I found out to use it is make sure that the camera is fully set to the setting you need then connect the app.

Fuji XF 10-24mm F4 IOS lens:

Love this lens! Its sharp all around, almost no bowing effect at the edges, and its fast. Now this is a good portrait lens for wide angle but not the best. This lens is best for architectural style of photography. I have been using this lens for the past few months and from every other lens which I have used in the past (in the same aspect ratio) this is far by the best lens. I don’t know if I have anything bad to say about this lens.

Well this concludes my short review of Fuji X-T1 with XF 10-24mm F4 IOS lens hope to get more lenses and maybe update my review some time later next year.

Matt and Alex Wedding | Denver Wedding Photographer

Even Though I am established as a denver wedding photographer that doesn’t mean I don’t travel. It’s kind of weird to start a blog post but this summer I flew to California more like Sacramento area to photograph a wedding. I love to travel and I really enjoy when I have an opportunity to travel outside of Denver. But this post is not about me and why I love to travel, this post is about Matt and Alex and this about their wedding.

The wedding was almost a the pick of summer and with that came the heat (not just from a great wedding but from the sun as well). Their wedding was fantastic! I can’t say it enough but I love it when people treat you at a wedding not as a photographer who has to be working but as a guest. Everyone was super friendly, following directions from me, and most of all that all equals out to great photos. Now I do have to mention that I did photograph Matt and Alex engagement photos (click here to see them) yet because of that it was much easier to work with them. They know how I work and what I would request from them but on the other side it was easier for me as well because I didn’t have to teach them the ropes of how to pose and so on. The end result is great, and once again I will say that their wedding as just awesome from start to finish.

Evan and Jordan | Denver Engagement Photography

Denver Engagement Photography

It’s been some time since I wrote any blog posts but it’s been incredibly busy for me lately. Yet few weeks ago I had this engagement session not far from Denver in Roxborough State Park. I love this location for not only the variety of locations to photograph with different backgrounds but also because in few locations it looks like Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs (without driving to Colorado Springs).

I have meet Evan and Jordan for very brief moment and they liked my photography, so eventually they wanted me to photograph their engagement session. What a great couple, they were easy going, fun to be around, and they have great personalities. I enjoyed photographing them (untill park ranger kicked us out) but as my own personal opinion I think the photos are great. Well take a look for yourselves.

Wedding Trends for 2015 by Shutter Avenue Photography

Now that’s 2015 its time to talk about the wedding trends and what to expect. I will say that its just my opinions but it seems like in the word of internet this is what everyone is talking about. So here we go.

Colors: In the past year of 2014 I have seen lots of bright pop colors, like bright pink, greens, blues, and reds. But in this year the prediction is that we will start seeing more of pastels colors. Even though lots of brides love bright pink color it will be more toned down and have more of a subtle look to it. Like I said it will have more of pastels than bright.

Wedding Dress: Put it simply it will be more off the shoulder gowns. After following the runways of bridal shows it seems like the strapless dresses are not the popular anymore but also the church traditional look of the dresses are also not in the style for this year. This has not been a popular look for quite awhile now, but the way it was presented during fashion week was very classic and clean, sometimes with a whimsical look.

Looking for the best Denver Wedding Photographer

Ceremony: Now talking about traditional, the ceremony seems like will be getting shorter and shorter. Even to the point of where ceremony will be just a big party in some words. After photographing many wedding in the past year I have noticed that the ceremonies are getting shorter to a point of where its just for 10 to 15 mins long, and right after that is the party. So it will not be a surprise to see the ceremonies completely infused with the wedding day that guest will not even be able to tell if it was ceremony or not.

Rustic: This is not really new but I think it will pick up even more this year. Having mason jars, burlap, lace and custom (hand written) posters on a black board or on glass seems to pick up more and more in trend. Lots of venues now hire professionals that can create this look for the couples. Having rustic chairs with unique table is another way to get away from regular round tables.

Denver Wedding Photography for all of Colorado and California area

Entrances: It used to be that at the beginning of the reception, the newly married couple, their wedding party and parents would be introduced by the emcee before going into the first dance of the evening. Now, couples are opting to either only introduce themselves or going all out with a major entrance and choreographed dance. We are seeing couples work with choreographers to surprise their guests right at the start of their reception. While this was always seen at Sweet 16s and Mitzvahs, brides and grooms are bringing this trend to their own big day. Don’t be surprised if at the next wedding you attend, a full out dance starts as the entire party is introduced.

So don’t get surprised when you go to the wedding next time to see lots of changes not only to the schedule of the wedding but also to the themes and the style from the traditional wedding.
