The true test of a wedding photographer’s skill is not if he/she can take a great photo when the light is perfect, but it’s if he/she can take a great photo when the light is bad!
We’ve taken many fantastic pictures (in our humble opinion), but we’re most proud of the images we’ve captured in difficult lighting situations. Take Lacey & Craig’s wedding. Super-nice couple who wanted to do something a little different. They decided to get married at the The Metropolitan Building, a wonderfully unique space with eclectic furnishings & decor. We love the venue – it truly is a New York wedding photographer’s dream! The chic store Anthropologie has done shoots there. Once the sun sets though, the dark brick & wood can be challenging for a lot of photographers. We, however, see this as an opportunity to use our unique lighting technique to be creative and sculpt the light for a more dramatic & artistic rendition of the celebration.
Lacey & Craig first met at summer camp when they were young. Many years later, they got reacquainted & liked what they saw in each other. Friendly Lacey can light up a room with her smile. Craig is a bit more reserved, but you know what they say, opposites attract!
In her vows, Lacey gave a very touching story of when she realized Craig was the “one”. It was when she overheard him trying to learn her favorite song on his guitar. Then, it was Craig’s turn and Craig used his iPad to list the reasons why he loved Lacey. Very unique & creative, but perhaps, not the most romantic way of expressing your love. Craig is, however, not a mushy type of guy. His “strong and silent type” demeanor was tested when he cut open his foot when trying to break the glass. Like a trooper, he showed no pain, smiled and continued with the reception.
Their reception was a blast with everyone having a great time on the dance floor and a special performance by Craig on the guitar.
Many congrats to Lacey & Craig! We’re glad you rediscovered each other as adults and we were able to document the beginning of this next journey in your relationship.
