Reunion Wedding!

I love shooting my friends weddings because it's like a big reunion of all my college buddies (and I get paid to be there!...although they do get 1/2 off) but anyway tonight was incredible and I was really stoked for Steve and Cait because they really had an incredible wedding and I had blast. I'll have a slideshow up later but I have a flight to Chicago in 6 hours so I gotta get packed now but here is one of my favorite shots! ...and the trick to getting the little star for the sun is to put your aperature really high like f/22...I didn't know this for the longest time but now I know and it's really fun to do.

That's awesome!
i've always wondered how to do that... I thought it was a photoshop trick or a filter.

Isn't that a fun trick. You can also throw a little fill flash in there. I love playing with the sun. Just don't stare at it too long... ; )

Be carefull with the sun, don't fry your sensor.
You can use that trick at nights with city lights. It will create amazing effect on them giving each of them a sparkle.
