In this series I want to showcase what goes into the creative process behind some of my favorite shots.
I recently posted this preview on my Facebook page from Scott and Genny’s wedding a few weeks ago.
The day before the ceremony I went down to Aspinwall to see what I could find near the venue.
Keeping in mind the light at the time of the portraits the next day I kept an eye open for places where I could control that light as well as find places to create unique portraits for the bride and groom to treasure for years to come.
I found this gray wall between two businesses. I liked the texture of this wall and the contrasting white brick wall on the other side (which you can see in the final photo) the combination of the two made a nice frame.
(I’m not sure why my blog has chosen to load this image sideways but it has)
I’m always looking for a unique way to frame poses or an peculiar angle that will draw the eye to the portrait. I’ll do this sometimes with a tree line, an out of focused object perhaps in the foreground or the angle in which I pose people. I want manipulate the eye to this beautiful or special moment in time.
