Kuwell!!!!!!!!
No surprise they hire you,cause you're the best!

OpenSourcePhoto said...

Thank you! :D ...it was definitely a team effort!

Shyla said...

Whoa!!! thats so great Deej,...definately a great way to start off the new year!!

So, for somethig like this do you have to release all the images immediately or do you pick a few and send those to "whoever" until you are done editing?

JasonAng said...

that rocks!!

LaCour said...

Congrats on a fun shoot and an incredible couple!
What a great opportunity. I am a huge soccer fan..and former FL high school state champ ;-)...so I was thrilled to see LD's wedding. Great job to the whole team!

Best,

Rachel (on behalf of the whole LaCour crew!)

chris lazo said...

Sick dude:)

OpenSourcePhoto said...

Rachel that's awesome! I'm an AZ state champ! haha...oh the glory days! :D

Shy - I narrowed it down to 70 of our best shots and then met with Scott Corridan who produced the event and we picked out 5 from those to send over.

I'm sure it's different with everybody but that's how we did it. It's crazy how fast these people move. It went from me selecting images at my house - to narrowing down with Scott - to Bianca's agent - to up online at People in under 2 hours.

sweet man. that's such a cool wedding to shoot. i would have had to try my hardest not to talk soccer with him the whole time. lol.

that is a neat way to end/start the new year though...i would have been so excited to shoot that.

sweet deal! (and good shot too...i love it!).

Sa-weet!
Congratulations, you go Bud!

Alisha said...

Nice dude!

David Beckstead said...

Fantastic man!!!!!!

Staja Studios said...

Great work and congratulations DJ.

I have a question regarding the shot itself. Did you set strobs at the front up, or was that a lighting crew that came in? I noticed alot of light coming from their back and what appears to be camera left.

Great work, I love the shot!

|| davidjay || said...

Hey thanks :) ...the lights you see are:

2 from the videographers (one on each side of the aisle in the front) and then there was a big spot light coming from behind the altar as well.

The only lighting I provided was my on camera flash.

SamTheMan said...

Big D,

Congratulations my man, this is awesome stuff. See, I told you that you were good. There's more to come in '07, have fun dude!

Picutre Proofs said...

Faith said...

My ex soccer boyfriend was dating the soccer girl that is now Landon Donovan's ex girlfriend. Small soccer world. Unite.

DJ was a goalie. That is why it is hard for him to score.

Just kidding Deej. I could not help myself.
