Best Cape Cod Wedding PhotographerI love every single thing about this portrait and the bride in it. In 2013 I traveled to Cape Cod to photograph a wedding at a private home by the water on the Cape and it was wonderful to explore somewhere that I’d never photographed a wedding before. I got to the home early that day to scout the location and was immediately drawn to a towering thicket and the narrow tunnel that cut through it. I knew that I wanted to use that space for some portraits and I hoped that the beautiful light would carry on through the day so that I could use it beautifully when the time came to shoot in that location. The bride and groom saw each other for the first time that wedding day at 3:00pm and in June the light is still strong, bright, and almost directly overhead. I know that if I used that location for a portrait the light would be coming down hard right on top of the bride’s head. I had the bride tip her head downwards so that the pose was more serene and also so that the light would cover her entire birdcage veil. I absolutely love this portrait. I entered it into the 2014 WPPI 16x20 International Print Competition and was thrilled with my final score! It also hung in the background for the 30 Days of Wedding Photography course that I taught for Creative Live in the spring of 2014.
