Best 100 Fearless Awards of 2023

We scouted extensively for this portrait, visiting the site the day before and running through flash output and timing. This helped immensely with the execution on the wedding day as we weren't able to stop the gondola or do a second pass as the timing was tight.

After setting my exposure for the available light, I was able to do some quick math and reduce my flash power accordingly. Our test shot the day before was full sun, but the cloudy weather on the wedding day provided a slight challenge. Fortunately everything worked out and the couple was ecstatic with the complexity of the photo process and also with the resulting editorial portrait of their Telluride Wedding.
