This is a reception table shot at Paradise Falls Wedding venue, a second property of Los Willows Wedding Estates. Done at one of their Wounded Warrior Weddings that they have every year at both properties, they really go all out to give the couple the absolute best wedding possible. All services are volunteered by vendors who work with both properties, it really is a labor of love for us to give back to those who have given so much.
This wedding had a Mardi Gras theme, that's why the masks on the table.
This image was shot with a Canon 5D mkIII and the new Tamron 15-30 f2.8 VC lens. This is a remarkable lens, with image stabilization on a wide angle lens and a close focusing distance of 4 inches! While not considered a macro lens, it doesn't magnify the object, such a close focus gives some really interesting opportunities for playing with perspective! In this case, however, we just used its wide ability to show the interesting setup in the room. From the table to the multi layer cake to the antique espresso machine, all the cool stuff available to the guests was included in this shot.
