Dez & Agye – Gananoque Ontario Wedding

My favourite thing about photography is getting to know families through all the milestones of their lives.  I have been taking photos of these two and their adorable daughter for a few years now- and they are just the loveliest family.  We always have a wonderful time together- and this was one of the MOST […]

Amber & Mike – Kingston, Ontario Wedding Photography – September 2014

It was a beautiful day for a wedding, because no matter the rain, or the cold, there was LOVE in the air. Amber and Mike met many years ago in Scouts, and together have travelled through Ontario, all the way to British Columbia (where they now live) and along the way they have ventured to […]

Megan & B.J.- First look

There is something very romantic about a ‘first look’ ….. Some brides want the big reveal while they walk down the aisle…but others love to take a private moment with their husband-to-be before the guests arrive and the rush of the ceremony takes over. Megan chose to meet her groom on a lovely bridge, just […]

There’s more than one way to light a scene!

The following photos were taken within about a 15 minute window- just in the few golden moments at the start of a sunset. There were some changes in light as I went along, but most of the differences between these photos are the result of changing exposure in-camera, and adding off-camera flash. I made very few modifications in photoshop- I cropped slightly, cloned out an ugly electrical line, and added a bit of saturation to enhance the sunset, but otherwise the lighting differences are Straight-out-of-camera.

This first image brings out the beautiful cyan hues of the ocean, and is all about a wedding on the beach.

In the photo above, however, the couple isn’t well lit, so I added an off-camera flash for a different look. You can still see the cyans of the ocean, but the bride & groom are more the focus of the image.

Here you can still see some details of the couple, the gazebo, and the ocean behind, with only the beginning hues of the sunset.

Simply by increasing my shutter speed, this turned into a silhouette with an intense sunset behind.

In this one, my settings were the same, but I moved myself just slightly to find the best angle for the colours and light.

Adding off-camera flash in a gazebo with a white ceiling, perfect for reflecting the light, creates an image with focus on the bride & groom, but also allows the definition and colour of the sunset behind them.

I love the creative freedom that comes from changing light!
Do you have a lighting preference among these images?

Loving the Light- Gananoque Wedding Photographer

I recently had the pleasure of working with a bride and groom who were excited about letting me do some fun lighting! I am really happy with the images I got, and SO glad that I invested in a creative lighting photography workshop with Christina Craft from Funky Town Photography. I learned so much, and putting what I learned into practice is crazy fun!

This gorgeous wedding was held at Isaiah Tubbs Resort in beautiful Picton Ontario. I’ve posted some daytime photos from this wedding in this post.
