Weddings at the Hilton Waikoloa Village Big Island

Going to the Hawaii- this image was taken at my wedding for Nate and Yvette at the beautiful Hilton Waikoloa on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was such a perfect day, and we couldn't have asked for a more beautiful sunset than the one we got after the ceremony. This property has a long walkway from the gazebo to the chapel which I absolutely loved. The walkway helps to tell the story and makes for a great picture. Congrats to Nate and Yvette!

Next Workshop: Temecula, California- June 26th and 27th

Camera settings: Nikon D700, 1/250 sec at f/16, 16mm at ISO 100, flash fired. Taken at 5:33pm on June 15, 2012 by Jason Lanier.

A Natural Wedding Canopy...Hawaiian Style- this image was taken during my wedding fantasy shoot for Nate and Yvette at the Lava Tree State Park on the Big Island of Hawaii. This place is truly one of the most beautiful on earth and I've been in love with this road since I found it 4 years ago..(there's a landscape shot of the road hanging in my home). So I took the bride and groom down there and we had an absolute blast as we did all types of shots with this gorgeous scenery.

Take the time to get the right shot. Go to the right place, plan the right amount of time, dress up, make sure your gear is ready to go, visualize what you want to capture, and make it look amazing. Great pictures don't come from Photoshop, they come from your creativity and proper planning....
