In December a coworker asked me if I could take “traditional studio” portraits. If you have seen my work you can see I rarely do studio style work but I took on this challenge.
Monica is a beautiful bride so the images were going to turn out lovely regardless. The lighting was not an issue either but the issue, if any, was going to be in the posing. Typically in the photo shoots I conduct take place at locations with furniture and objects to help with the posing but this time around we shot at my photography studio located at The Grindstone Co Working in Edinburg. We had a gray backdrop and wood floor and that was it.
The approach I took for this traditonial studio photo shoot was to show off two things; her wedding dress and her beauty. I made sure to photograph her from every angle to show off her beautiful wedding gown. Then I also made sure to make her laugh and smile so her natural beauty would shine through the images.
