A gorgeous day, a beautiful couple, and an amazing wedding are just some of the things I was busy with this past weekend. Leanne and Mike got married at Atlantic Beach, NC this Saturday – bringing two wonderful families together as one. Mike’s father is a pastor and was the officiant at the wedding – proudly welcoming his new daughter-in-law with nothing but the highest degree of affection. The reception was held at the tented backyard of the Beaufort Grocery Restaurant – an awesome gourmet restaurant near the beach – and the bridals were taken at various locations in Wilmington, NC about a month ago on another gorgeous day.
Most of this wedding was shot by ambient light. Being outdoors and at the beach, I wanted to give a very organic feeling to the whole series and thought that by utilizing only available light, the images feel more natural. The light during the midday ceremony was brutal, so rather than fighting against it, I decided to use all the brightness to my benefit.
