Story

Over the years we’ve been finding new ways to keep our work fresh while exploring new ideas. We’ve used natural light a great deal but we also wanted to explore artificial light in very low light, or dark, conditions, so we can give our couples an extra dynamic to their gallery. At the end of this particular elopement, we broke out one of our video lights and changed to the red color gel. We had it in our collective mind to do some sort of double or multiple exposures to make it a little trippy! Most of it was finished off in Photoshop which is where we decided to add the extra colors.

We just used one $20 video light (purchased from Amazon many moons ago) on a stand to illuminate the couple. The light was slightly off to the left and we used a red color gel on it.

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.
