Dustin Izatt of Digital Izatt
DI 01 was that same brides wedding. It once again started to sprinkle and then another torrential downpour. While everyone began to seek shelter, she ran out ot the middle of the lawn and cried out “This is what we do Dustin” I left shelter and once again began shooting in the pouring rain. A few other brave guests joined her in the rain and that’s when I grabbed this shot. Shot on my 5d with 70-200 L IS attached. Available light shot at 1600, 1/100th, at f/2.8
Brad Wolf of SOTA in Washington DC and StudioThisIs in Chicago
This image was shot on August 28 of 2007 on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, Canada. This was actually the wedding of my best friend/co-owner of SOTA/StudioThisIs, Jeremy Bustos and his beautiful wife, Hailey. We took the entire day after the ceremony to shoot several different locations and scenarios. After rowing into shore from a lobster boat, the crew of about 7 of us got set up and shot away! The result was the image above. It was one of the moments when everything just clicks! The image was also shot with Nikon D200, 100 ISO, 1/1250 SS, F6.3 with a pocket wizard-slaved Quantum Qflash T5D w/ Turbo Pack.
