At each wedding, I always hope the time line will allow the couple a few minutes to step out during their reception for a few pictures. I love that this allows me to give my couple a variety of portraits from the day and allows them time together with just each other.
For this image, I asked Hannah and Trey to step out of their reception once dinner was over. I loved the ambient light of Crosswater Hall behind them and I wanted to preserve that while highlighting them with off-camera lighting.
To start with this image, I simply asked the couple to come in close to each other. The bride naturally wrapped her arms around the groom's neck and they brought their heads together. I love that this is a natural position for them and that it is preserved.
To light this images, I had my assistant light them with a speed light and magnet mod modifiers to limit the amount of light hitting the couple. In post processing, I removed all evidence of the lighting equipment to create this final image.
This is one of my favorite images from their wedding day. I love the light behind them and the moment they're captured in.
