Perspective and Wedding Photography
When I am creating Wedding Photos, I think sometimes it is all about perspective. Kind of like life. I try to move around and see things from different vantage points during the day. It gives variety to my clients and it is challenging to me. Moving around and taking a different point of view can be uncomfortable, but also rewarding. It helps you grow.
The Wedding Photos below are from a recent wedding near the Canfield Casino in Saratoga Springs, NY. We were in this very beautiful area with a fountain, a sundial and sculptures. The light was the perfect kind of light you get in the fall late in the day. The first photo is a fairly typical type of wedding photo in that the bride and groom are facing the camera and smiling. I gave the image depth with the sundial in the foreground, as well as using the 70-200 mm lens to compress the background. I really like this wedding photo because they look so happy.
What I like to do after I get a shot like this is move around to different angles. I got some really different looking images at this wedding, but the one below is my favorite. It is just Georges holding Kathy’s waist. I love hands, and think they can be so eloquent. I love the way he is holding tightly onto her waist, like he does not want to let go. These kinds of images happen at every wedding spontaneously–every time. I just need to move around. Showing something like that is why I think Wedding Photos are important. It captures a moment in time forever. My goal is for my clients to remember exactly how they felt at a particular moment–photos help you do that.
I love both photos individually, but I like them even better together. Together they tell a story. What do you think?
