When we enter the getting room, one of the first things we do is analyze what the light is doing. Where it’s coming from, what type of light it is and how can we use it. Most of the time, rooms are bright enough to pretty much shoot anywhere but not in this particular case. The room, as stunning as it was, was very dark with the only light coming from a window on the side.
Since we avoid shooting with the room lights turned on, we chose to embrace the darkness of the room. In fact, we really wanted to try our hand at capturing a very lowkey image. When it came time for our bride to put on her last details (earrings, necklace, etc…), we simply asked if she would be able to do all of that but at this specific spot we found (and tested earlier).
