Sometimes is good to compare and contrast your work. I have two fantastic weddings that both had their reception at the same location, Lowes Portofino Bay Hotel. What I love to compare is the difference five months shooting on DSLRs makes and how lighting changes the look of a room. Abby & Richard’s Wedding was on June 5 2010, I was a babe to the DSLR shooting game. I shot mostly the Bridal prep and detail shots with the DSLR with a few reception shots as well. Kim & Anthony’s wedding was shot 5 months later on October 16 2010. I would say that at least 60% of the wedding was shot on DSLRs.
The reception where held in the same exact ball room and you can see how lighting completely changes the vibe and mood of the room. Both beautifully decorated receptions, but both have a completely different vibe. The use of more DSLR give Kim & Anthony’s video a completely different look to Abby & Richard’s video. You can see where the traditional HD video camera has its strengths as well.
