In the midst of a beautiful day in State College, Pennsylvania, Kelly and Justin enjoyed a private moment together after their wedding ceremony. The romance of this photograph made it a perfect choice for the cover of their wedding album. As I do with many of my clients, I took advantage of this beautiful location, posed them in it, and asked them to enjoy themselves while I took photographs. By doing this, I am able to naturally capture the couple’s love and affection for each other. I love Kelly’s happy expression as Justin gives her an affectionate kiss. This portrait’s soft colors of peachy pink, light grey, and pure white give it an elegant and antique mood. As the portrait’s solid-colored edges give way to a clear and focused center, the viewer’s eyes naturally rest upon the kissing couple. I like how he vibrant colors of this wedding portrait appear only in the center where Kelly and Justin are embracing. The assortment of greens above them and the orange of Justin’s boutonniere are a nice relief to the mostly peach color of this photograph.
