Bridal Shoot

Earlier this week, I was fortunate to capture the work of an amazing creative team.  It is very inspiring to work with a very talented team as you want to make sure you do your absolute best, to capture their exquisite work.

My original intent was to shoot with natural light.  I had to throw those plans out the window when we arrived on location and were greeted by a backlit scene which would have illuminated the models harshly.  I then decided to use one light to try to compensate for the unusually bright Chicago Spring afternoon.  I hope you enjoy some of the images posted here.
