Wedding 360 degree Panoramas

A new service that I’m offering wedding clients is  Wedding 360 degree panoramas during the reception or perhaps other points during the day.  These panoramas are made in the same way as the Google Business View virtual tours and will become a part of the Google Maps and Google StreetView when they are created.  This product is called Google Views, and it is a really interesting way to document either the entire guest list or the bridal party.  The photos are called Equirectangular and are 360 degrees in every direction.  The only way to properly view these is to view them with a flash or HTML5 viewer or using the software that bends these back to a sphere such as Google Maps/StreetView.  This is how I’m doing it now, you can view these on Google.

Here’s some examples of some of these that I’ve done in recent weddings.  When I meet with you to discuss wedding photography, I’ll bring this up as an option to your package.

Wedding Photography in Washington, DC

I had the awesome privilege of being the photographer at Nichole and Kevin’s wedding this past weekend.  Nichole and Kevin got married in Washington, D.C. at the WWI Memorial.  Nichole and I had found this location when we did her bridal portraits last year.  We had the most amazing weather and it was the peak of the cherry blossoms.  The only down side was there were 10′s of thousands of people at or around the national mall enjoying the day.  This was a wedding to remember and I was so honored to be a part of it!  Best wishes, Kevin and Nichole!

Westwood Baptist Church Cary, NC – Wedding Photography

Julie and Andrew had their wedding at Westwood Baptist Church in Cary, NC with the reception following at the North Carolina State University Club in Raleigh, NC. It was a beautiful day for a wedding and I was so excited to be their photographer. I had previously shot a wedding last year at Westwood Baptist Church, so I felt right at home. Julie was such a beautiful bride, and everything fell together to make her day very beautiful and memorable.  I also shot some bridal portraits of Julie leading up to the wedding day, be sure to check those out.

This was my first time shooting at the NC State University Club and it was a great venue for a reception.  It was definitely a privilege to be a part of Julie and Andrew’s most special day.

Raleigh Bridal Portraits – NC State Arboretum

Check out these Bridal Portraits that I shot back in mid May. Julie, her Mom and I had a great evening at the JC Raulston Arboretum doing this portrait session. I have had the unenviable task of sitting on these and not releasing them until the wedding (I definitely don’t want the groom or other wedding guests to see these until the big moment).

The wedding is Saturday, July 27th and I will be able to make these photos public then! I am absolutely looking forward to the wedding day! Julie is a very happy and fun person to be around and I think it shows in the photos! She’s going to have such a great wedding day!

Please enjoy these Bridal Portraits that were shot in Raleigh at the NC State Arboretum.

Raleigh Wedding Photography – 360 Degree Virtual Reality Panorama

The wedding of Nichole and Gray Sweat was this past weekend and it was an amazing event! I was such a pleasure to do the photography for them and their family. Before the first dance began, I had the DJ pause and I did a quick 360 pano ala the Google Business Photos. I’ll get another blog post up with some from the wedding day, but for now, please enjoy this 360 Degree Virtual Reality Panorama.

Wedding Ceremony 360 panorama – OBX Kitty Hawk Pier Photography

I had the distinct pleasure of photographing the wedding of Megan and Josh Price this weekend. I had the idea of using the technology behind the Google Business Photos at the ceremony to vividly capture the ceremony’s moment in time. This was my first time trying this at a wedding, and I think it turned out great! It took a brave bride to let me do this, as it was a tad disruptive of the ceremony; I’m glad Megan was such a good sport to let me try this! The resulting product is a very unique capture of the moment for them. In the coming days, I will post a peak at the rest of the images from the wedding, but for now, please enjoy this 360 panorama of their wedding ceremony on the beach at the Kitty Hawk Pier in the OBX of North Carolina.
