Wedding Photographer In Greensburg PA - Before And Now!

Wedding Photographer In Greensburg PA - Before And Now!

So this has been a long time overdue. Since I started my business, my wedding photography business. My wife and I shot our 1st wedding in 2008, now This was a friend of my sister that was getting married.  I was only really supposed to be taking pictures so her friend had extra pictures.  But I didn't realize that the couple decided not to hire a professional photographer so I was the only photographer at this event.  Now doing weddings for over 10 years, you should always hire a professional photographer and not just count on your friend to take these important images that you will have for the rest of your life.

Long story short, they loved their images that I captured from their wedding back in 2008 but now looking back, I cringe when I look at them.  Now they were not bag for what I knew back then but knowing what I know now, I wish I could go back and re-do their wedding day because they would be so much better.  But the only thing that really matters is that they love their wedding photos.

Now this post is really to show you where I was and where I am now as a professional wedding photographer.  So lets look at some before and now wedding photos from2008 and until 2018.

The first picture in 2008 was taken with a Canon 20D, 24-70mm or maybe a little longer of a lens with a variable aperture. This image was captured at 1/250sec, f6.3, not sure of the ISO. This as you can see was back lit with no key light to properly expose their faces in this image.

The image on the right was captured in 2018 with a Canon 5D Mark II, 24-70mm 2.8 and captured at 70mm, f2.8, 1/400sec and ISO 100. This also didn’t have a flash but knew how to change my settings to get a proper exposure so the couple is well lit for my taste.

Remember if you are getting into photography, it doesn’t matter what anyone else thinks because there are a ton of different photographers that shoot differently so just because someone doesn’t like it doesn’t mean it is wrong. They just might have a different opinion of what is a good photograph than yours. Don’t get discouraged by what people say about your photography, just keep on shooting and master it…
