The secret to getting good portraits is taking advantage of opportunities that come up during the wedding day. It might be the weather that tells adds a certain unique story to the wedding day. It might be lighting that I can use (think twinkle lights). It might be that the wedding party is super close and love hanging out together. Often I will take suggestions from the wedding party the day of the wedding so I can get a flavor for how they fit together as a group and also because what might seem super cheesy to one group is what a different group has dreamed of doing for years. Blending tradition, creativity and a pinch of opportunity are the secret sauce for creating fun and epic wedding portraits. I've thrown some detail photos into this gallery as well. I always use what's around me to help tell the story of the wedding day. Another thing that makes photos better? Having fun! It really is that simple.
Thanks for looking through my wedding portrait portfolio and hope you'll check out more galleries while you're here.
