This romantic wedding portrait captures how the groom was unable to suppress his joy -- so eager was he to embrace and kiss his bride. His action caused her to smile radiantly. His dark hair and tuxedo along with her lacy wedding dress, styled hair, and bright lipstick were all beautifully combined to create their classy appearance. The fading evening light gleamed through the large skylight of the library, providing a romantic ambiance for their first dance. All of the guests were entranced by the happy couple as the newlyweds glided across the dance floor. Hannah and Matt were caught up in their loving moment and seemed to notice little else. To capture this special moment, I manipulated the lighting to create romance and drama for this portrait. The darkness of the photo’s outskirts reduces distractions yet allows the viewer to catch a glimpse of the on-looking guests. The skylight and the lighted columns romantically lit the background of this beautiful portrait.
