Balboa Park Prado Wedding in San Diego

Osiris and Sam...what can I say about one of the sweetest couples we've worked with, and a couple so totally in love? Some couples, you just get an immediate connection with and they were one. We loved them from the very first time we met. We had a blast on their engagement session and their wedding day was icing on the cake. Sam is a big dude, and she's very petite and it made for some very pretty photos. This one is one of our favorites, and a great example of how creative lighting can overcome challenging conditions. We wanted to get the gorgeous lighting on the building behind, but didn't want to lose them either to under- or overexposure. Getting more than one Speedlite on them helped balance the light and I think we got a great photo, here! I really love the new(ish) Canon 600 EX-RT and how Canon finally implemented radio control for them, so they don't have to be line of sight. Those flashes combined with the 5D mkIII and 28-70 f2.8L results in some stellar photos!
The Prado Restaurant in Balboa Park is one of San Diego's premier wedding venues and one of the oldest premium restaurants in the city, occupying a building that dates back more than 100 years in Balboa Park.
