First Dance at Wisehaven Banquet and Expo CenterOn a lovely day in York, PA, Maria and Kevin held their wedding reception at the beautiful Wisehaven Banquet and Expo Center. The darkening evening atmosphere provided a romantic ambiance for this sweet couple’s first dance. This portrait captures the romance of their embrace while also focusing on the bride’s loving and happy expression. All of the guests were entranced by the happy couple as the newlyweds glided across the dance floor. Maria and Kevin were caught up in their loving moment and seemed to notice little else. Throughout the wedding day, I am always looking for natural moments to photograph sweet expressions like Maria’s. I illuminated the bride and groom by using an off-camera flash, which makes them the focal point of this wedding portrait and not the darkened background. I reduced distractions by making this portrait black and white and by focusing only on the bride and groom and allowing the background to fade away. I enjoy taking candid shots throughout my client’s wedding day because these photos capture the natural emotions and expressions that occurred on the special occasion. The Wisehaven Banquet and Expo Center was beautifully spacious venue for the wedding reception. I noticed that the venue’s friendly and professional staff did their utmost to make sure that Maria and Kevin’s reception was a beautiful and fun occasion. The Center’s Grand Ballroom is an elegant, two-level dinning area with several beautiful chandeliers adorning the room’s center. The Wisehaven Banquet and Expo Center is conveniently located on East Prospect Road in York, PA and I would love to have the opportunity to photograph here again.
