Variety: The Spice of Life

By, June 30, 2017

As photographers, we love adding a healthy dose of variety into the wedding day images. By incorporating a mixture of poses and diverse locations, we’re able to craft photos that are both original and personal. Even when we know a location by heart, we always arrive early, to ensure a wide range of photos will be captured. We explore the area, check out the day’s conditions, and find the best creative angles.

We like to scout locations that offer a wide array of creative possibility, and keep an eye out for subtle changes in light and landscape.
Dramatic and diverse locations for wedding day photos

While scouting for Angela and Donnie's wedding at Mt. Woodson, we spotted that the pomegranate trees were in season, and were bearing fruit. For a more intimate portrait, we asked the couple to stand between the leaves, and lean in for a kiss. We framed the foliage around them, and added a romantic bokeh effect, which created a dreamy look.

We're also aware of the subtle, candid moments throughout the day. It's in these fleeting moments where the subject isn't looking that some of the most treasured moments unfold.

On Xochi and William's wedding day, we noticed this sweet moment of William taking a second to help tie his son's shoes. By staying alert, we were able to document the priceless moment between a father and his son.

In addition to using the environment as a prop, we like to make use of creative lighting, and photograph scenes in unexpected ways. As the rain began to drizzle during Natalie and Joel's New Year's Eve wedding at the Ultimate Skybox, we placed a light behind them for a dramatic effect. By playing with off-camera lighting, we were able to transform the scene, and enhance the moment.

We love capturing all the beautiful wedding day moments, each in their own unique way :)
