Colts Neck Wedding PicturesAt this wonderful backyard wedding in Colt’s Neck, New Jersey I had the pleasure of working with the one of the most vivacious and vibrant brides and grooms that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. The wedding reception took place at the bride's parents home and we were able to use their beautiful lawns and surroundings during the portrait session of the bride and groom. The weather was gorgeous and the day was sunny and bright. I was able to place my clients in the direct path of the sunlight in order to create a beautiful halo of light around their heads. I also deliberately chose the background of the trees so that you were able to see that lighting pop against the dark foliage. The relationship between the bride and groom was so dynamic that little instruction was needed when directing them during their portrait session. My goal when photographing brides and grooms together is to naturally show their relationship without attempting to force emotion out of them that might not feel genuine. I truly feel that when you look at this photograph you get a great sense of what the bride and groom are like together and hopefully in years to come they will look back on this photograph and remember how joyous they felt at that particular moment on their wedding day.
