Balboa Park Prado Photographer in San Diego
Photographer in San Diego
The Reflecting Pond in front of Balboa Park's Botanical Gardens is one of San Diego's most popular photo spots, always crowded with people trying to get that perfect photo. So it's always a challenge to get a shot without an attendant crowd in it, and as wedding photographers in San Diego, we get a lot of requests to shoot here. With so many people about, we decided to shoot this from the end where everyone was standing at the Botanical Gardens Building, toward the street, where, oddly, no one was. We used a long lens and a tripod to get the shot, a slow shutter speed to get a lot of ambient light and a flash behind the couple to give a great backlight to the whole scene. I love the way the evening colors came out in this one, too. Sometimes I get lost in just looking at this one, it's one of my favorite wedding photos that we've ever done.
Shot with a Canon 5D mkIII, 70-200 f2.8L IS on a tripod.
