Here is some inspiration that will add a new dimension to your bridal portrait ideas.
On a cool October evening, we met at Lakeview Cemetery, which was a pretty unusual place for her bridal portrait ideas to come to life.
This place is filled with filled with rolling hills, dotted with old-growth trees and vintage architecture. You might want to check it out for your ceremony if you are having a more intimate wedding.
With a light breeze and lots of room to romp, it didn’t take long for Janine to warm to my camera. Her playful mood and expressions were all that I needed to capture the look she was after.
And this was no exception because I knew that after 4pm, the light would be much softer and more flattering for wedding portraits. And as I predicted, the setting sun soon began to cast a warm amber glow onto Janine’s fair skin, which contrasted beautifully with the cool white in her wedding gown.
Just when I thought we had captured some great images, the wind kicked up under her veil giving the whole frame a mysterious, ethereal look.
We continued our session until it was practically dark, paying no attention to the fact that the cemetery and actually closed and the gate was locked!
Janine and I enjoyed a hearty laugh, looking back on the fact that the bride was locked in a dark cemetery with her photographer on the eve of her wedding day!
