If you read my article How to Hire a Wedding Photographer recently, you may remember I suggested seeing a full set of photos in a setting similar to or the same as for your own wedding, to be sure that your photographer understands how to expose images in that environment. It’s also important to understand that it’s possible conditions will be entirely different at the exact same place on your wedding day! The late fall light coming through the Stave Room windows for April & Eric’s wedding images below was very different than the early fall light coming through the same windows for Casey & Ben’s wedding. The sun was at a sharper angle at the same time of day, so the atrium was much more contrasty. I edited out some shadows that I thought distracted from taking in the emotion of April & Eric’s so-sweet First Look, but I loved the soft, romantic light that fell on the street for their portraits outside. The take home message is, don’t get hung up on expectations that things are going to be a certain way. Vet your wedding pros, give them specific input on what’s important to you, then let go and trust their expertise.
