Chris and Emma’s wedding day took place in the heart of DC. Like any busy, big-city wedding, there were some challenges with timing, travel, traffic and finding locations. We had some moments of being rushed and then some moments of really killing it… especially during portraits!
Today I’m sharing just a few minutes of their wedding day that show just how powerful good lighting decisions can be! This snippet of the wedding day was right before we were getting ready to load up and drive to the ceremony. It was RUSHED. I didn’t really have time to be shooting extra portraits with the old vintage car, but I knew that this was probably going to be my only chance… and it was. I’m SO glad that I took the time to take these because I LOVE them and I never had another chance to shoot with the car later in the day.
I set them up first in FRONT of the car and it was fine… but not amazing. (You’ll be able to see this in the clip of the episode!) Then I quickly took a few shots from the complete opposite angle and it was 100x BETTER!! Why? It’s all about the light (less harsh, more indirect, less facial shadowing) and background (less heavy elements and fewer distractions).
