Over the years I've learned a few things about documenting the “getting ready” portion of the wedding day. Here are a few tips I thought I would share with you. - Try to clear the room of all the unnecessary clutter. I’m always looking for clean compositions and it can be accomplished by putting whatever isn’t needed in a closet or another room.
- Mailing me your wedding stationary can be a big help. This way I don’t miss any of those great candid moments. There was a lot of thought and hard work that went into creating your wedding stationary and it deserves to be put in the best light. I can do this without any time restrictions before the wedding day.
- Try to find a room that has a lot of natural light. I’ve found that people look best in soft natural light. This kind of light makes for great skin tone and can hide skin blemishes.
- Less light can be better lighting at times. Every light source has a different color temperature from warm to cool tones. So when we have two different types of lamps on and a bride is sitting next to the window getting her make up done, half of her face is going to be orange from the (warm) lamps, and the other half is going to be (cool) blue from the window light. There is no way to properly color correct this image other than to turn the image into a black and white.
