I believe a good wedding photographer wears many different hats during the wedding day. You must wear the hat of a photojournalist, a landscape photographer, an architectural photographer, a fashion photographer, and a portrait photographer. The canvas of a wedding day most always contains these five things. We, as photographers, are defined by how long we wear each hat and what will therefore be considered our style. My particular style is always shifting between these five hats to mirror my client’s personality and unique style.
This image is a direct collaboration of my style and my bride’s style. I put on my portrait hat and set out to make a stunning, simple portrait that would showcase her classic beauty and style .
This particular image was made at a beautiful Biltmore Estate wedding with an Art Deco feel. My bride for the day was beyond stunning with her vintage style of hair, dress, and decor. I made this image very quickly using just the natural light coming in through the doorway with a closet door as the backdrop. She had just had her makeup done, and I asked her to just turn to me for a quick image. Simple and quick always makes us both happy. And photographing on the Biltmore Estate is icing on the cake!
