Eric & Tracy's Destination Wedding!

I was lucky enough to be asked to help photograph the wedding of Eric Brown and Tracy Tompkins at the Mountain Home Lodge, in Leavenworth, Washington. Regan Van Huffel Botsford was the other photographer for the wedding, and you can view her fantastic work on flickr by clicking here. This was my first destination wedding where I needed to take a flight since 2009, and I've accumulated a ton of gear since then. I really tried to pack light, but ended up taking more than I needed to ensure that I captured this event for my close friend Eric properly. 3 Canon dSLR's, 2 GoPro HD Hero's, a Canon G11 with CHDK, and a Sony HDR-SR1 HD camcorder. The goal was obviously to focus on photography, but I wanted to try and expand my photojournalistic skills. The ceremony was captured from multiple cameras and locations. Here is the list of shots:
  • GoPro HD Hero on a Tripod using a Lawn Sprinkler timer as a panning device: Time Lapse
  • GoPro HD Hero on mini-gorrilla pod on lawn directly in front of the alter: 720p HD Video 60fps
  • Canon G11 on Tripod on elevated Deck (Right) running CHDK script: Time Lapse
  • Canon 7D on Tripod on lower elevated deck (left): 1080p HD Video
  • Sony HDR-SR1 on elevated deck: 1080i HD Video
  • Canon 50D with 70-200mm f/2.8 IS Zoom Lens: Monopod
  • Canon 5D Mark II with 16-35mm f/2.8 Zoom lens: -R-Strap
The goal with all of these angles and different media types is to be able to put together a slideshow with images, videos, and time lapse sequences, with music. Here is my first attempt at coming up with a worthy presentation:
