New York Botanical Gardens Wedding PhotographersEvery year I strive to add new techniques, skills, and tools to my abilities as a wedding photographer. Photography is a fascinating field because there is always something new to learn, to explore, and to master. No matter how many years I have been shooting weddings there is always more to learn and I will be striving to perfect my craft for decades to come. In the past year I have been exploring in-camera double exposures. These are not accomplished in Photoshop (nothing I do is a Photoshop trick, ever), but rather by layering two files on top of each other at the moment of capture. I love this image of the bride and groom at a 2013 wedding at the Bronx Botanical Gardens. The strong silhouette of their faces is perfectly filled in by the branches of the second exposure - one image of the couple, one of the trees.
