beach wedding

Less than 20 minutes before I had to leave for the airport to go back home, my friend Taz came out in this amazingly beautiful red dress. At first, we had plans of her trying to go into the ocean water and I would try to capture images from above with my drone, but with the short amount of time and how cold the water was in Destin, Florida, it just wasn’t going to work out. But it did allow me just enough time for me to capture this image.

Taz and her husband Fahim stood there as I was circling them with the drone and it seriously felt like I was photographing a dream. I only wish I had more time to get capture more images but one thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to capture this dress with the water. It was the perfect pop of color and the flowy dress was the perfect complement to the waves in the water.

In case you were wondering, Taz said she got this dress from Etsy.

My camera settings for this image are F2.2 at 1/4000th sec and ISO 100 with my DJI Mavic Pro.
