I have mentioned on my blog how much I enjoy shooting in the evening/night. Shooting at night opens up so many possibilities that are not available during the day. For one, I am able to get really creative with the lighting. Sometimes I will use a video light, but other times I may decide to use off-camera strobes with a variety of different modifiers. With the shoot below, I used a large softbox and a grid mostly. But what is also cool about these shoots is that you can gel your lights, alter your white balance and get all kinds of funky colors in the background! While much of my work is wedding/family related, I also shoot teenagers and young adults. When I do these types of shoots, I like to be as creative as possible and give my clients something very different.  Here are a few from a couple of senior sessions I shot!

Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens is such a lovely place for a wedding! It is one of the finest venues in the Charlotte area for an outdoor wedding and reception. Candice & James were recently married there and I was able to capture their nuptials on a perfect Summer day! Candice had a beautiful dress and wore an amazing pair of Manholo Blahnik shoes. James looked spiffy in his black tux and the two of them made a gorgeous couple! Candice did such a great job planning her wedding and the reception was SO elegant. I love how crisp and beautiful the flowers looked and all in attendance had a wonderful time. Best wished Candice and James, you two were simply amazing!

I’m really happy to unveil Caitlin and Jack’s wedding at Saratoga Springs today! I always love going out to Saratoga Springs, as it is a photographer’s paradise with it’s lush landscaping and picturesque backdrops! We dodged some early showers and were able to get some wonderful images. Caitlin and Jack wanted to do a “first look” and man did it really turn out well! We got a little creative with this first look and drew out the anticipation by having Caitlin and Jack back-to-back. Anything to help build the excitement! Some of the best weather of the day arrived just in time for the ceremony. The sun always filters through the trees perfectly at Saratoga Springs! I always love how the sun drenches the leaves rendering them golden and warming up all the imagery. This especially makes the horse-drawn carriage shots magical! After the ceremony, we took some time to get a little crazy with the bridal party group shots! I had the bridesmaids and groomsmen swap bouquets and jackets. I also had the guys mimic shots that are usually reserved for the ladies.. so funny! All in all this wedding was very memorable and so much fun! Congrats Caitlin and Jack, you guys put on one heck of a great wedding!
