Natural light photographers…. (flash photographers, we know how you would handle these scenarios and that’s awesome for your style! This is for the natural light folks!)
Have you ever been in an epic location with harsh light and your client has openly shared about all of the amazing things that they want you to capture?
“We want the sunset, clouds and sky color… no flash…. and we want the water to show up perfectly exposed too!” ……. Right, but your ceremony is in the middle of the day so…..
Ok, so not all requests are that specific or that impossible! (Thankfully our KJ Couples are realistic!!)
… but I know that for a lot of photographers… these types of requests happen all of the time when you’re shooting…. especially when you’re shooting in epic locations!
I remember shooting in Lake Como, Italy! It was bright and the light was harsh throughout the majority of the day but, thankfully, the bride’s family trusted me when I said, “We have to wait until closer to sunset to have photos that will capture you in great light AND capture the background at a proper exposure!!” …..
But what do you do when you’re shooting a wedding, an elopement or even a special-situation portrait session in an epic location in the MIDDLE OF THE DAY?
….. How do you shoot in HARSH LIGHT?
… How do you protect your clients from horrible shadows?
… How do you expose for your clients AND
the mountains or lake or even GLACIERS behind them?!
Well, I have some tips that may help!!
There are a few tips that I have to share with you that will help you conquer tough lighting scenarios in epic locations when the expectations are high and you desperately want to walk away with portfolio shots that you love!!!!! ……

This will go down as one of the most unique KJ Weddings to date! Taryn and Jeremy were married over a year ago but because of the pandemic, their celebration had to be delayed.

As a wedding photographer, I want to turn EVERY wedding day challenge into a positive experience for my couples & their guests. While I might be stressing over where to shoot & how to capture the image with the best light, I never want my CLIENTS to see that!
