Dana & Shane

David Ball: San Francisco Wedding PhotographerIt's been a busy month. Last Saturday I shot my 7th wedding in 6 weeks mostly as a 2nd photographer for Studio Seven. Not that being busy is a bad thing, but I also have several school groups to shoot in September as well. In fact, I have to go shoot another one less than 6 hours from now. Oh well, I guess sleep is overrated anyway. David Ball: San Francisco Wedding PhotographerSeptember 29th was Dana and Shane's wedding which Dennis DeSilva over at Studio Seven hired me to help him with. Everything was going fine, until a couple of important family members failed to show up on time for the beginning of the ceremony. So we waited over 45 minutes to start ... which kind of through our timing out the window for the romantic shots we David Ball: San Francisco Wedding Photographerhad planned at the golf course next to the reception venue which was 20 minutes away. We just ran out of light and time to get to the golf course after the ceremony finally finished. Luckily, there was a very nice walkway next to another golf course just outside of the church. So we stopped the limos, grabbed our couple and got some really great shots on the spot. Improvisation is something a wedding photographer needs to be ready for when things don't go quite right with the best laid wedding plans, as is too often the case.

I love the random look of the posts in the wooden fence next to the golf course. And, all in all, I think we came up with some winners as you can see here.
