This photo captured far more than just the memories of the bride’s special day. It has served as a vivid reminder of the aha moment I experienced that day. It was my first time assisting professional photographers Matt and Natalie Thomas with a wedding. So, I was surprised when Matt suggested we turn off the lights to photograph the bride and her dress. He asked the bride stand with her back an angle towards a window.
All the while I was thinking to myself we are probably not going to get any good shots in this little Sunday school room with the lights off. However I was pleasantly surprised with the results of the light softly illuminating the dress.
By the way, this turned out to be my favorite shot of the day.
