As promised, more images from Vanessa and Matt’s wedding…
You know me and my affinity for bold, saturated colors. :) The strong geometric pattern combined with the blues and golds really appeal to me in this image.
Can I just say that the moment just before the kiss is even better than the kiss itself? It gives a sense of anticipation to the image. This moment looks like it belongs in a timeless romantic movie. (Wistful sigh…) This was captured exactly as it happened, at the perfect moment, without guidance from me. But here’s a little tip for brides-and-grooms-to-be: when the time comes for your own photos, once in a while try lingering just barely apart for a few seconds before your lips make contact, and see if it adds a sense of anticipation and movie romance to your images.
You know what else I love besides saturated colors? Peeling paint. That’s right, I said peeling paint. I love the contrast of beautiful people juxtaposed to a grungy scene like this. Peeling paint, old wood, rusty metal, you name it. If we are on a photo shoot and come across something like this, be prepared to hear a squeal of delight from me!
Two grungy backdrops in one day? And this one in rich purple? I was in heaven.
I used a little cross-processing to give this one a different feel. What do you think?
Vanessa chose some amazing details; I love, love her stylish feathered hair piece–so chic!
I won’t tell you what lengths I went to in order to get this shot, but I will say that it was totally worth it.
And finally a moment alone at the bar…
Vanessa and Matt, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your day. I wish you both many years of happiness and love!
