I have photographed weddings for over 30 years. I have seen it all, and probably should write a book someday. While there has been a trend to “candid”, “photojournalism” style photography, I always work in some dramatic images. It is very rewarding to create stunning images, like this one without the use of any automated exposure. This image was carefully backlit with a portable strobe (on 1/8th power) and I dragged the shutter speed down just far enough to open up the warm ambient light at the front of the church. I could have adjusted the white balance to get more natural colors on the alter, but I wanted the color contrast to add drama to the framing and composition of the bride in the aisle.
I love the classic lines and elegant simplicity of this image. Call me to discuss your wedding day. I won’t offer you 4000 pictures on a disc, but I will create a collection of images that will amaze you. Set your wedding apart from your friends and hire a seasoned pro.
