A Beautiful Day Photography panoramic portrait offers a true vignette of the wedding. While featuring everybody that came to the celebration, this photograph also offer a glimpse of the environment the couple had chosen for their big day. Our clients tell us it is their favorite photo from the wedding and usually the only one they hang framed on their wall.
Inspired by the work of the great Czech photographer Josef Koudelka, Daniel had been exploring the panoramic format since 2001 for personal work, mainly landscapes. The idea of a wedding panorama struck in 2004, when Daniel's Fuji 6x17 camera came along to a wedding in the Yucatan.
"HOW DOES HE DO THAT?"
In a small window of time, usually right after the ceremony (and definitely before the cocktail time) we assemble the wedding party, family and all the guests into an interesting arrangement nearby. Everyone who wishes to be visible, can be seen in the final 12" x 36" print of the picture.
Because of the large size of the negative, the image is reproduced with great clarity. Many clients tell us the wedding panorama is the first thing guests to their house are drawn to inspect and admire upon entering.
