Shadow Shots: The Wedding



2012_05_05_5615a

This shadowy shot was taken at my son's wedding ... and for those of you thinking "WTF?" - yes, that's a real airplane behind the head table. Thought you might enjoy some seeing how the "Wedding in a Hangar" turned out last week.

The place was packed for most of the night, so I had to wait until things had cleared out a bit to get these. We had our doubts about the venue, but once the professional lighting company got done with it it turned out to be quite a dramatic setting. Don't you think?

People were drawn outside to watch model airplanes equipped with LED lights do stunts against the backdrop of a full moon. Sadly, my photos of them didn't turn out, but I did get some decent ones of the biplanes: See those here.

Hope you've all been well - it's good to be back!

I like airplanes (hence 'airhead'), I think the one with props on the left is a Merlin the jet a Hawker? At any rate, a hangar wedding reception is amazing, so different, so cool! I like how the executive can enter the airplane in any weather inside - that's the life! And that urethane coated floor - spotless! A great post!

An amazing venue for a wedding! How creative! And the lighting is so dramatic yet romantic! Delightful photos!

Ralph, I knew you'd enjoy this! And you're right, the plane on the left is a Merlin. The one on the right is a Cessna Citation Vll. The two biplanes are Stearmans. There was also a T-6 Texan parked outside. Wish you could have been there!

Thanks, everyone, for the kind words. I'm glad you liked these!
