Amanda and Noel had an urban, gallery, space wedding, held at Space Gallery, located in the Santa Fe Art district, in Denver. This is a rather unique venue as the space is filled with paintings, sculptures, and ceramic pieces. It’s a big space as it easily fits around 200 guests. This venue also has multiple levels as the ceremony was held on the main level, while the balcony was open to fit another 75 guests during the cocktail hour. The basement was the storage area for a lot of the artwork, and while it was small, it accommodated the grooms party while they were getting ready.
The hanging installations made for some interesting views for me as I shot part of the ceremony on the balcony. It was pretty dark but the couple was lit by some overhead lights, so I didn’t have to use any extra lights. In fact, the entire wedding was just bright enough to allow me shoot most of the wedding without any flash at all. I only brought it out a little bit for the first dance and some of the open dancing, afterwards.
This was the first wedding I used my smaller X100F. I wanted to try a camera that was a bit more discreet, and I’m happy to report that the camera performed very well. Even in lowlight, the autofocus did a good job. It allowed me to get a few more discreet shots without intimidating the guests. Enjoy the photos!
