One Shot: Carrie and Parker’s Hotel Valley Ho Reception

Mar 3, 2016

Today’s One Shot is a cool black and white image I shot last weekend at a wedding reception for Carrie and Parker at the Hotel Valley Ho. The hotel has this great 50’s modernist vibe in a lot of its colors and structure details. I knew there would be some fun features to play with when we got there to shoot their portraits in between moments at the party. I loved all the lines and beams included in the staircase and I thought using them to frame the sweet couple would be a nice way to draw some attention to them and the structure. I have been on a black and white kick lately and I think here it really serves the lines of the framing well. I was pretty stoked with how this all turned out. Plus, I’m a sucker for a nice kiss to the forehead as a pose. 

Shot with my Canon 5D Mk III and a Canon 28mm 1.8 lens at ISO 640, f3.5, 1/160th sec.
