Barbara says:

“Melissa and Tyler met at work and simply wanted a wedding that brought their two families together. The relationships between everyone was a high priority.”

Barbara’s Photography Tip:

Lighting is the key to well-composed reception shots. I set up 3 – 600ex Canon flashes that are remotely triggered with an ST-E3.

I put two of the speedlights on either sides of the head table and a third is across the dance floor opposite to the head table (creating a triangle).

Bonus tip: if you want to create some awesome layering, shoot through stuff like the decor (see my last shot for an example!).

Barbara used a Canon 5D Mark III with a Canon 70-200mm 2.8 LII lens, a Canon 35mm 2.8L lens, and a Canon 100mm macro 2.8 L lens to capture these images.
