Story

We had recently purchased some new fractal glass and prisms and thought this incredible room within the venue, with awesome light and color, was the perfect place to test them out.

With the cool mix of light, color, and patterns on the wall, we decided to use the kaleidoscope glass in this situation to see how it went. This was just the test shot, but we were really digging how it turned out! After this wedding, it inspired us to start using prisms and fractals a lot more than we were previously!

If using a kaleidoscope or other glass filter, keep a bit of negative space around the subject to get that full effect. If you want to obscure the image a tad, more in closer and all the glass/light to leak into the frame more.

The Hendrys

Photographer United States of America Canon 5D Mark III Canon 35mm f/1.4 II
Scottish duo living our best lives in Los Angeles! More importantly, parents of two babe-licious rescue bunnies who keep us sane. The sober and vegan lifestyle is our jam. We only take life seriously when it really matters (adulting can suck at times!). We have a deep-rooted connection with each other and that’s why we work so well together. It’s quite cute really. We are not typical wedding photographers, that is for certain. We go against the usual grain, and that’s exactly how we like it to roll. Normal is boring. Well, for us, at least. We’re constantly pushing ourselves creatively and are incredibly passionate about telling unique stories for each couple, so we aim to go into each wedding with a clear mind and eyes wide open. If we could describe our work in four words they would be the following: Fun. Romantic. Creative. Honest. We’re also suckers for some awesome light.
