Have not posted many pictures lately...
Year has been solid, editing has been more solid.
This was the first wedding of the year that I was really happy with. Not that I was unhappy with the other ones we have done but they were just kind of eh overall.
Feel free to comment as you please.

Nice set.

The big group shot (#28) impresses me the most. So tough to get that many people to actually listen for a few seconds. How long did it take you to pose everyone? How did you go about it? Verbal commands, hands on, assistant, ect.

And finally, how freaking tall is your light stand?!?

My wife does all the group posing when there is actually posing like in that shot. She tries to pose each person individually with something slightly different for each person.
It takes a bit of time. I think that shot took maybe 10-15 min.
The only time we do those is when we have a bunch of time to do group shots and are not in a hurry. We actually finished all the group photos and bride and groom photos 45 minutes ahead of time that day so we were not in any rush. When the light is good it is pretty easy.
We like to do shots like that because of the "peaks and valleys". Makes it more interesting visually if you don't have anything else creative to work with. Obviously we are not Annie Leibovitz in Vogue magazine but something is better than nothing I guess.
I think the paradigm started with Sam Hassas with his ladder shot from long ago and then was talked about at each Genesis workshop a while back.

I have very tall light stands... haha
I think they are like 13-15 feet fully extended. They are actually backdrop stands I think. The heavy duty ones...better for when people bump them so they don't fall down.
I try to put them up as high as possible because it creates less shadows from heads and other things in the way and allows me more freedom to work with the light.

In a world of VSCO, a constant barage of little people silhouettes, and rock-star copycats, this is refreshing. I love that you run your own race and maintain your own style. Simple, subtle & timeless. Bravo.

Thanks man!
Lots of styles and trends out there but we try to keep doing our own thing. Honestly we have learned that while we may not be the most creative people we can give people a really nice experience overall even if that means just being able to fit in and relate to tons of different types of people at each wedding.

The budget for the wedding was in the 6 figures but it was honestly one of the most laid back days we have had in a while. It was really simple to just get what we needed on not be overbearing all day. I enjoy these kinds of weddings.

Really nice work Doug.

Some of the verticals might benefit from the 8x10 crop.

Oh man, Amen to that! When you get these either by accident or by planning and leading the clients along they are so awesome!!

The wedding seems to be a great and well organized occasion. The couple looks well groomed and happy on their special day. I want my sisterís wedding to be a perfect event and I want her to enjoy the big day of her life, hence I took the responsibility for planning her wedding so that she could relax and take care of herself and prepare for the wedding. But Iím bit worried now as the wedding date is coming near and Iím not able to plan the occasion. A friend of mine suggested me to go through professional websites, and to hire a wedding planner. I want to know how you prepared for the wedding and what should I do. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Great set of shots! Quick question for you, for the first dance shots, was that all OCF or did you have a flash on camera firing as well?

Also, shot of the bride holding her bouquet near the beginning, do you ask her to angle it towards the camera a little? I sometimes struggle with that shot... even though it should be simple.

Again fantastic set of images!
