Stillwater Wedding // Trellis Weddings // Krista & Brett
Part of telling a couple’s story on their wedding day is knowing how to use the natural light available. Every wedding has it’s own unique dynamic, it’s own season, it’s own location. On the bright late summer’s day of Krista & Brett’s wedding, I found myself working with a lot of different lighting scenarios (diffused window light, bright direct sunlight, etc.). Each of these scenarios creates a mood, which – if I do my job right – evokes a memory. We had some beautiful locations to shoot at for this Stillwater wedding – at Trellis Weddings & in downtown Stillwater, MN. When you look back on your wedding photos, it’s that mood that you see in the photos which will take you instantly back. I try to make sure that special feeling of the day is preserved in the images I deliver. As I look back on these photos, I think you can see some of that anticipatory romantic mood especially in those window lit moments with the bride waiting before the ceremony. Light is magic. And, as photographers, we’re all magicians – weaving a story of love & laughter told in a simple & honest way.
