A few weeks ago I had a great wedding for Mike and Jessica at Cave B Estate (near Ellensburg WA). I was joined by my buddy Matt, from Shumate Photography who helped out as my second shooter. Jess and Mike just couldn’t seem keep their hands off each other ;) so we kept on the go with lots of great moments.

Creation is awesome. The day started with some stunning distant clouds. About the time everyone was prepped it had started pouring down rain. While rain on a wedding day is not ideal, I was determined to make good use of it. Jessica needed to get to the main lobby to see Mike for the first look. I found her an umbrella and she and Gina ran from the getting ready room down to the main lobby. I ended up lying on the ground in the rain shooting like crazy and having a blast. My white slacks got wet and dirty and my camera got soaked (it’s still working) but the results made a great addition to their collection.

The rest of the day was no less successful. The rain stopped just before the ceremony started. Rain in this area is often quick and this was just perfect. It was cool but not cold and the clouds, now moving away made a breathtaking backdrop for their outdoor ceremony. We even snuck off for some evening shots of the Cave B bluffs around sunset. More of those in the album.

All in all the day was a huge success. Jess and Mike have returned from a great honeymoon in Costa Rica and were just in for their proofing. I’m stoked about their images and they loved them too. So much so that they had a hard time making the final decisions.  The album slideshow above tells the whole story and below you’ll find a link to the proof gallery for those of you that want to see the nearly 400 images and/or order prints.

Saturday I had great wedding for Darren & Jana at the Cave B winery. Darren and Jana are from CA and came here for their day so they could be near family. DJ is an engineer and Jana is a hairstylist, which was fun because she kept was helping with others hair while getting herself ready.

I’ve worked at Cave B before and while the lighting can be challenging, the results can be amazing. The happy couple should be on their honeymoon as I speak. I managed to get the editing done early.

DJ & Jana did a great job. My favorite shots are when we snuck off at sunset and went out to the bluff. What a beautiful view of the Columbia river. Then back to the reception where the Disk Jockey spun up some “real vinyl” and kept a great party rolling.

On a sad note, my brand new lens fell off the camera and took some damage towards the end of the night. It’s OK though because it’s to to the repair shop and the pictures turned out awesome, so I’m happy. Enjoy… Gav Continue reading ‘Jana & Darren’s Wedding At Cave B’
