Charleton Churchill is an explorer, adventure and a destination wedding photographer. In 2015 he will be photographing one of the most unique weddings on earth on a very special place to get married at: Mt. Everest, just above Basecamp. Here are his own words about him and the Mount Everest project.

I have been traveling in the mountains ever since my dad dragged me through miles of terrain high and low whilst thou a young boy. I have been photographing the outdoors as a hobbyist since 2005, and shooting weddings since 2008. I photograph between 30-40 weddings on any given year, but I am focusing my attention this year on destinations with outdoorsy couples who want an extraordinary, scenic, natural, and even remote wedding. Most everyone loves nature and landscapes, but when you add a human element to the scene and the humans are in love, it’s like the perfect combination. I trained and planned to climb Mt. Everest in 2011, training on North America’s highest peak, Denali at 20,320 ft. with a summit in 2007, and leading a team up the following year. My Everest Expedition was delayed due to a fall on Mt. Hood in 2009, which broke my tailbone.

Wedding photographer Muse Muse travels from Hong Kong to the Swiss Alps to the carnivals in Venice and further on to Paris with a B1 Off-Camera Flash and a Magnum Reflector as his most trusted traveling companions. Join him on his trip in this beautiful, sun kissed video.

A lot of people have welcomed the concept of traveling light. Using Profoto, you could say that Muse Muse is one of them.

Equipment-wise, the Hong-Kong based wedding photographer brought nothing but his Canon camera, an Air Remote TTL-C and a B1 Off-Camera Flash with a Magnum Reflector with him on his trip through Europe. This lightweight lighting solution allowed him to travel with ease all the way from his hometown to the bright sun at 2,300 m above sea level in Switzerland, with a pit stop on a volcano cliff sunset in Santorini, further on to shooting mysterious masquerades in the shadowed alleys of Venice without any hassle, eventually ending up shooting young couples in the city of love – Paris.

Walk Through a Wedding, Part 17: The Hora

Walk Through a Wedding is a yearlong video series on wedding photography, in which we follow Justin & Mary Marantz as they set out to capture a young couple’s most special day.

The series consists of 20 videos. Each video reveals the story and the lighting setup behind a certain image. In the seventeenth episode, Justin & Mary talk about how they photograph the Hora.

“I really love that first moment when the bride sits down, and all the sudden the four groomsmen grab that chair, and that first second, as she is lifting of the ground.”, says Justin.

For this shoot, Justin & Mary were both shooting at the same time. They set up two B1 Off-Camera Flashes in each corner and were able to cover different angles. “If you think about it, there are actually two sets of 90 degrees, and two sets of 120 degrees at any time”, says Mary.

One of the B1 Off-Camera Flashes was equipped with an Umbrella Shallow White M and the second B1 was equipped with a 1,3×2 RFi Softbox attached to a speedring. Last but not least, they used the Air Remote TTL-C for wirelessly controll.

For more details of the shoot, make sure to watch the video.

Previous episodes of Walk Through a Wedding can be found here. The next video will be released on November 17.
