One of the nice things about traveling for a wedding is that you get to work in new locations. Having fresh eyes on a location can be a huge creative advantage. The first look and portraits were done out at Adam’s Mill. This was my first time there, so I was free to not over think – not worrying about how I had shot in the past or how others had in the past. I was free to just trust my instincts on how best to shoot it. This was also my first time at the new Bel Air in Kokomo. I have to say having a balcony is wonderful. The added birds eye angle is a great change but more importantly for me is being able to get my light that high up, giving a natural feel to the lighting.
I know many people helped but I would love to specifically thank Stephenie – she helped keep the day wonderfully organised. She helped herd the large bridal party out of the Mill, blocked traffic so we could get shots on the bridge and was a resource for me all day. Secondly I would also like to thank Michael who came in to second shoot with me. He anticipated my needs the whole day and his images are, as expected, wonderful.
