Very nice. I've never shot there, and I live 15 minutes from Saratoga.
As for the shots where the lighting is harsh, I tend to start worrying less about getting the head-on, walking down the aisle shots, and I start to worry more about where the light is good, and shooting from that location. Maybe this hurts me, maybe not. But I know that if the light is spotty/patchy enough that it won't even lend itself well to a B&W shot, then I shoot like that. It works well.
That's a beautiful guitar. Next time have the player take the clamp off of the head.
By the way, I think you have nothing to worry about. This is all beautiful stuff.
Thanks--the guitarist was playing at the time I took the shot, and that clamp was part of the amplifier/mic--would have been kind of intrusive to have him remove it
Have you ever had anyone ask you where the shot of the bride walking down the aisle was? Just curious. I find that the moment before the bride and her father (or whoever is giving away the bride) walk out to be more intimate and momentous in a way... And a perspective you never would get as a guest. We all know that the aisle is basically training camp for "Uncle Bobs" and I've done it myself in the past before I started shooting weddings.
