We love to capture moments – it defines much of what we do. But we also love taking the time to set up and light a really cool creative portrait on the wedding day. As you can imagine, this is pretty challenging. There’s so much going on during the wedding day that finding the time to steal the couple away, and come up with amazing lighting and composition in that time constraint, can be extremely difficult.
How can you make this easier? When planning out the schedule, make time for portraits (in addition to a half hour for formals). Anywhere from 20-40 minutes is perfect, even 10 if that’s all you can spare. We prefer the early or late evening hours for the best light. If you’ve seen any nice portrait spots around your venue, let us know! We’ll also scout for some great places before we begin shooting. Portraits are ultimately a collaboration between the subject (you) and the photographer, with both sides contributing to create something intensely personal and unique.
Here are some of our favorites from the past few months!
