Cool Groomsmen at Lakeview FarmsOn the morning of the wedding at Lakeview Farms, Daren and his groomsmen had fun together as they prepared. On such a beautifully sunny day, the guys were glad to pull out their shades and take off their jackets for this shot. The groom and groomsmen strike a strong pose with their feet apart, hands in pockets, and jackets slung over their shoulders. This was a fun group of guys to work with and they enjoyed having the opportunity to joke around and strike a cool pose. As I do with all of my clients, I am always looking for a cool and manly portrait of the groom and his groomsmen as both they and the bride enjoy looking back on those fun moments. Several features of Daren and the groomsmen’s portrait really added to the cool look that they were going for. First, their stance is square and strong. Second, their sunglasses and relaxed expressions give them that “chill” look. Third, the iron fence provides a solid and straight background for the groomsmen to line up against. Finally, I chose to take this portrait in black and white to remove the distraction of colors and to add to the strength and coolness of the guys’ pose. Lakeview Farms is one of the most beautiful York County wedding venues I have had the privilege to photograph. Its shining lake, rustic stone buildings, and elegant country views all provide many beautiful backdrops for wedding portraits. Surrounded by wooden-fenced pastures with grazing horses, Lakeview Farms is a private and peaceful venue for your wedding.
