Bob and I believe in light. I don’t want to understate this. It’s not that we just think light is cool and kind of important. It’s that we believe it is the number one thing to look at before taking a photo. It provides shadow, depth, dimension and character to photos. So you’ll see us carry around all kinds of flashes and gels and other things to control light and its temperature and direction.
But sometimes a window will do. I guess that ‘s kind of the trick when it comes to photography, knowing when you have to produce the light and when it already exists and you just need to figure out how to use it. We shot Danielle and Keith’s wedding last weekend at the Colonnade in Scranton. First, it’s a wonderful place to shoot and Josh and Paul, the owners, are always very gracious hosts. This was an especially good day. Danielle and Keith – who we absolutely love – really put a premium on photography, and we had all kinds of time to get some photos in their suite upstairs. It’s a good thing too because it was blazing friggin’ hot outside.
So the photos in this post are all shot with window light. Just one window in the middle of the day. We’re really happy with how they came out. And, of course, thank you to Danielle and Keith for inviting us to a really intimate and beautiful wedding. We feel like part of the family.
