Congratulations! Joyce and Nim Sorra Wed in beautiful Carmel, California – June 20, 2009

Congratulations to Joyce and Nim Sorra on their recent wedding celebration!  I photographed Joyce and Nim’s wedding at the Carmel Mission, arguably the most beautiful of the California missions, and no doubt one of the most sought after wedding sites on the central coast.  Although the mission is full of stunning backdrops, it also is a challenging venue with its dimly lit interiors.  I love photographing here!

 We coordinated in advance with the reception site, the Embassy Suites in Monterey, which made setting up wireless remote studio lighting ahead of time easy.  I had already carefully metered and taken light readings so we were ready for the reception party!  Having the right equipment and lighting knowledge to use remote studio strobes can make the difference between a ho-hum snap-shot and a dramatic cinematic portrait at your special event.  It’s worth the effort!

DNA DJs provided music and entertainment for the evening.  It is easy to work with DNA DJ and coordinating with their sound system for the DVD slideshow that I had created for Joyce and Nim went smoothly.  Greg and Dixie Hyde of Best Shot Video were a joy to work with.  Layers provided the cake.  Wow.

I have been working with Joyce and Nim for about eight months prior to their wedding.  We completed several engagement sessions, a bridal session, and specially selected several images to display at their reception, complete with accent lighting!  The wedding day and reception is always the main event, but what I strive to capture is this very special time in the relationship which extends well beyond merely the wedding day.
