Normandy Farms Wedding PhotographerOne of the things that I feel truly separates my work from the work of other wedding photographers is my use of light. I am always striving to find new and interesting light sources as well as working on my indoor images to light them in the most flattering way possible. I often work with an off camera light during my reception coverage in order to illuminate the scene in front of me in a way that enhances the mood and feel of that particular wedding reception. At this wedding reception at Bluebell Farms in Normandy Pennsylvania I utilized that off-camera light to separate the bride and room from the background of their wedding reception ballroom. This image was taken during their first dance and I love how the halo of light created around their heads and bodies serves to push the viewer’s eyes directly to the wonderful expressions on their faces. The first dance during a wedding reception is often a fantastic opportunity for deeply emotional images and it is always a joy when I am able to capture such happiness on the faces of my brides and grooms.
