Jill & Michael (July 5th, 2008)

This was my first wedding w/ the 70-200 f2.8/L IS USM and oh BOY am I glad I finally have it!!! It got me some awesome shots from the balcony during the ceremony ^_^ Below is a mix of shots with it and the 17-55 f2.8 IS USM.

1) This one is probably my favorite shot:

2) I had a great angle upstairs w/ the 70-200 for this shot

3) Another 70-200 shot. They looked so happy being announced as husband and wife finally :)

4) So my order is a little wacky, but anyhoo, I shot this before the ceremony and really like how it came out.

5) A fun shot with the bridesmaids in the bathroom

6) A mother daughter moment before the wedding ceremony

7) Not sure why, but I like this shot of them signing their marriage license

8) And lastly, Michael loves his mom (taken during their dance)

This wedding had such great emotions and energy, it was a real pleasure to shoot.

July 4th is also my father-in-law's birthday so since both my husband and I had the day off from work, we drove out to Oswego, IL to spend it with them.

A few of my favorite fireworks shots are below. Shot with my 40D and 17-55 f2.8 IS. Generally shot with ISO 100, f8, 2 seconds.
