Natural Light Photos

A few years ago I got rid of all of my studio flashes. I decided I only wanted to use natural light for portraits. To me, natural light was always so much softer and flattering. Plus, folks seem to react better without the bright flash going off. So I installed a large north facing window, and now I do all of my studio portraits this way. It is more difficult than using flash, but I feel my images are better for it. I do use a few reflectors, but that is about it! Here...

Questions to ask your photographer before booking.

-What is your backup plan in case the photographer can not do the wedding due to illness, injury, etc? -How do you back up your digital images? -What is your cancellation policy? -Are images stored offsite? -How many cameras do you bring. -Do you have ample backup equipment? -Do you have a slideshow showing an entire wedding?

It is time consuming, but a great accurate real world indicator of that photographers abilities. -How many weddings...

How to get great indoor photos using flash, and also how to get great outdoor images in bright sunlight!

I am actually using a combination of both of those techniques. I use a diffuser on the flash itself, and then also use a bounce reflector to direct the light. Photographers should be careful to...

Must have wedding photos

One of my 2011 brides asked me if I could write a blog listing must have photos. Not an easy task, as there are many must have photos at a wedding. Some are posed, some are candid. So here are some of my favorite candid must-have photos in chronological order: 1-Bride getting ready. I especially love to get a reflection in a mirror of the brides last minute finishing touches! Lacing up the back of the brides gown is always a great photo. 2-Bride and her father just before she...

Let you love light shine!

What a great way to put a fun finishing touch on your wedding. It also makes a great night time photo opportunity. Photographers remember to turn off you flash as it will ruin the streak effect. Most cameras have a night time mode that could be useful. These photos were taken at the Lake Placid Club in New York, and at The Lang Barn and The Essex, in Essex Junction, Vermont. ...
