Entries in bride and bridesmaids (5)



Today, we bring you Laura and her lovely ladies! 

Laura got ready at her parents home. They had an awesome patio in the backyard. It was a beautiful day and we wanted to take advantage of it.

I really wanted to have all of Laura's ladies involved in a fun photo with the dress. Laura had such a stunning dress! She looked amazing! I had the ladies all take part of the dress. That was the only direction I gave. After that, Laura and her bridesmaids were laughing and having a great time with it. I love how Laura glanced down to look at some of her ladies. 

These photos can be so much fun. The bridesmaids always like to be a part of the day. And the getting ready portion is really where they get to shine!

After Michaela and Aaron's ceremony at Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum, Neal took the ladies across the street to Kleinhans Music Hall for photos.

He had the ladies walk around the outside of the building while he was shooting from across the way. He wanted all of the bridesmaids involved too. He had each of them hold a part of Michaela's veil as if they were fixing it for her. Then Michaela glanced over her shoulder toward her maid of honor.

I really like how the light is hitting her veil and lighting it up. It looks like Michaela is in a spot light. I guess it makes sense being at Kleinhans!

I bet you could guess I would post Jaclyn and her ladies today! We can't have the men without the ladies!

The ladies were just as much fun as the guys. Maybe even a little more outgoing! Since the reception was at Pearl Street, we wanted to take advantage of the surrounding area. All of the architecture in that area is amazing! 

This was taken in an alley! We had all the girls get really close and have fun! We didn't tell them how to pose either. These were real reactions and laughs. I love how each lady is doing something different too!

Happy Monday! And a Happy Dyngus Day to all of our Polish friends! Enjoy those pierogies and polka dancing! 

Lisa and Ryan were married in September 2010. Their ceremony was at Our Lady of VictoryBaslica. A gorgeous church! After the ceremony, we always like to stick around and do photos there as long as we can. We sent the guys outside to hang out for a bit.

We wanted to have all the ladies involved for a shot in the Basilica with Lisa. As you can see, each bridesmaid is holding part of Lisa's veil. They were all laughing and celebrating! Lisa really didn't need to pose either. Neal just documented the scene.

I love how you can still see a lot of the Basilica as well. There is some light peeking in from behind that casts a nice little glow around Lisa too! Having Lisa face away from us also showed off her amazing dress!

Calling all pretty ladies!

Let's celebrate the New Year with Kelsey and her ladies! This was after the ceremony at Salvatore's Garden Place Hotel. Neal and I dragged over some of the couches from the foyer and had the Bridesmaids take a seat. Then Kelsey took front and center! They all look stunning.

The ceremony was over and the girls were ready to strike a pose and have fun. I love how one of the girls is holding out her flowers. They had fun with it and did whatever they wanted. We like to put people in the best light and let them have fun. These ladies did not need any direction!


Hey all, Neal here! New for 2016 I am adding some insight to some blog posts of what I did technically to create some of the images. For this image I placed the ladies in this spot of the foyer because it had beautiful natural light coming through the diffused skylights above. I put a light behind the Bride to separate her from the background. I shot this around 70mm at 4.0 to get everyone in focus but add a little blur the busy background which helps the girls stand out even more. - Neal
