I had the privilege of photographing Tashina for her bridal portraits. She is having an out-of-town wedding, so having great bridals were extra important and special to her. Because of that we did a split session, creating images both in the studio and on location to create a variety of looks for her.
Here is one of her wall prints from her collection, created at one of my favorite locations.
And here is another from that same area. Notice the lighting and shadows on her, complimenting her and creating real depth, the simple and confident pose, the dramatic colors of the vegetation, and the soft gray-blue sky.
Lighting should never be haphazard, and images should never seem flat. Instead, lighting should be specific and used to create depth. Between that and the right expression, an emotion should be created so that you should feel like you can step into the image. It should draw you in.
And that’s true even if an image is candid or in motion. I love her smile in this one as she runs through the field.
Back at the studio, we created this trio of her in her birdcage veil, black and white with a vintage style of lighting as tight head shots.
Then we created some stunning images on my fashion gray background.
I used a custom fashion light set-up for a high contrast look, and completed that set of images as a trio.
And we also shot on one of my favorite brown backgrounds for a nice warm look which also was used to highlight her fun boots.
It was really great working with Tashina and I wish her and her new husband well.
If you would like some bridal portraits and would like them to be out-of-this world, give me a call. 801-728-3317. I’d love to create something amazing for you.
Until next time, America.
