What Sets You Apart?

My experience in other categories of photography has trained me to think and act quickly in the dynamic environment of a wedding: My experience photographing senior portraits helps me get shy members of the group photo to join in on the silliness, my experience photographing babies helps me to get the flower girls to cooperate, my experience with fashion helps me be able to pose the bride like a model without having her feeling self-conscious about it, my experience with family portraits helps me manage large groups and arrange them in creative ways, my experience with real estate interiors sharpened my eye to the best way to light venues, my experience with commercial photography helps me think of creative solutions to lighting problems. Let me show you what I'm talking about by explaining what goes into making the following photos:

This couple wanted a sunset shot but unfortunately the evening was completely overcast! No problem, I setup a flash behind them with an orange filter and created an artificial sun on the horizon. That orange sun above the couple's head is actually a flash! I posed their hands, expressions, and posture and then lit the front of them with an umbrella which gives them that cinematic and crisp look.

What do you do when you want to show off the brides full veil but there's no wind? You have your assistant hold the veil up then let go on the count of 3! Sorry if it spoils the magic but it's time you know that shots like these are more often than not created :).

Seems like the standard bridesmaid-holding-flowers photo, right? Well, yes and no. It is the bridesmaids-holding-flowers photo but I have the brides point the top of the bouquet at me like a gun. This hides the stem of the bouquet and the girls' hands. This extra touch transforms a typical shot into a unique one.

What happens if the bride and groom wanted a silhouette shot but there's no more sun to allow that? Use off-camera lighting to create a silhouette effect!

At the end of the night, I had this couple walk into the lake. I lit them with an umbrella and then I had them run out of the frame. I kept the camera in the same position, exposing the star movement for 45 minutes.

Group shots seem straight forward but there are a lot of considerations I make to make them much more visually appealing. In this photo I had the bride and groom take two steps forward which made them look bigger than everyone else and isolates them as the main subject of the image. I then grouped the family members into 2-person clusters to separate people into identifiable units so that it doesn't look like one large crowd of people. Then I composed the background so that the sky is in the top third, the lake is in the middle third, and the grass is in the bottom third of the photo which follows a classic composition technique called the rule of thirds.
