Major League I-Dos



I photographed the wedding of two friends in 2014 and we shot their portraits at The Home of the Atlanta Braves, Turner Field. This is my favorite shot from that day on top of the dugout. I loved that their joy showed in every detail down to his socks and her shoes.

Behind The Lens

Location
This was shot at Turner Field - the former home of the Atlanta Braves. We shot this during one of their final seasons at the stadium. The bride and groom are standing on top of the Braves' dugout.
Time
This was actually right around noon. It was a game day and we were given access to to the ballpark a few hours before the gates were opened for the fans attending that day's game.
Lighting
It was possibly the worst time of day for lighting but we were at the mercy of scheduling from Major League Baseball. ND filters are a game changer on a bright summer southern day.
Equipment
This was shot on a Canon 5D MKII at 58mm at f/5 with one stop ND filter.
Inspiration
I love shooting the shoes on a wedding day, but in particular this shot felt special. The bride and groom both work in sports, he works in professional sports broadcasting and she works in baseball - having previously worked for the Braves before moving on to another MLB team. We were on top of the Braves dugout when I noticed how nice the colors were reading, so I laid down on my stomach and looked through the lens to see how this shot might read. I loved it, and I love how you can just see the "A" on the dugout at their feet.
Editing
Some basic color correction but otherwise this is as shot.
In my camera bag
When I'm shooting weddings with my wedding company, Amoureux Weddings my kit contains: Canon 5D MKIV, Canon 5D MKII, Canon 6D MKI, Canon EF 17-40mm f/4L USM Lens, Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L Is II USM, Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, and Canon EF 24-105mm f4L IS II USM Lens. I carry ND filters in a few stops, a speed light, and depending on the environment and time of day will bring a lighting kit for portraits.
Feedback
Make sure you're looking in the least obvious place for a shot. That's kind of the best thing I can say. We were so fortunate that the Braves organization was willing to let us shoot their portraits at the stadium.
