Here is some inspiration that may help you visualize your “look”.
Think about it: Your hubby to be will probably rent his tux for the day and then never sees it again. But for you, your wedding dress is an important investment; probably the most important piece of clothing you’ll ever wear. So why limit yourself to just a few shots at the wedding when you can have beautiful images created for you in a relaxed, unrushed session at an exciting location?
Since the look that Janine chose for her wedding was more gothic, I thought it would be fun to photograph at Lakeview Cemetery. This place is filled with rolling hills, dotted with old-growth trees and vintage architecture.
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.
