Their smiles beautifully express their joy as they glided over the floor for their first dance as a married couple. The chandelier and flash of light behind them provided a romantic, glowing backdrop for this special moment. I like to draw the viewer’s eyes center stage to the dancing newlyweds by creating a flare of light behind them. This backlit flash was achieved by having my assistant remain unseen while holding a flash behind the bride and groom. While the darkness adds to the romance of this wedding portrait, the light enhances its drama.
