Romantic Wedding Kiss at State College, PAIn the midst of a beautiful day in State College, Pennsylvania, Kelly and Justin enjoyed a private moment together after their wedding ceremony. 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. One of my favorite wedding portraits to capture is the moment right before the kiss because it is easy to see the tenderness and love that the newlyweds have for one another. 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. State College, PA was a picturesque location for wedding party photographs, bridal portraits, and of course bride and groom portraits. The elegance of the setting was well suited for this lovely couple’s photographs. With its towering columns, elegant lamps, and brick walkways, the porch of Penn State’s Old Main Building was a regal and beautiful location for this wedding portrait. Conveniently located on the college’s campus, I would love to have the opportunity to return and photograph more weddings at this elegant site.
Location: Old Main Building, State College, PA.
