I am usually outspoken and energetic and I love weddings. I love that each one is completely different from the next. My goal is to capture events as they unfold, real moments and emotions. I try to blend in and document what is naturally occurring on a wedding day, without too much direction and posing. A wedding is a personal story about a couples love for each other and for those attending, and my job is to document that love.

Joel and Kate had a beautiful fall wedding in Niagara on the Lake (Ontario). The light was almost gone as it was approaching evening and as we walked toward the reception room, we noticed an empty room with a beautiful window and stunning light coming through. We ran in and my partner, Hugh (www.hughwhitaker.com) had set the couple up for a photo, just as he finished I noticed how the dress movement was illuminated by the window light and asked Kate to stay where she was and turn a little side to side. This photo was the outcome.

The difficulty was how quickly the light was going. The sun had already set, so this beautiful dusk light wasn't going to last long, we had to shoot quick! I was crouched low to the ground on the other side of the room when shooting this.
I shot this wedding photo with a Nikon D4, 35mm 1.4 shot at ISO 1600, f/2.2, 1/80th. The challenge was to slow down the shutter enough to capture the movement of the dress, but keep her body sharp. I spot metered for the highlights and over exposed them in post processing. I used lightroom and applied my black and white preset (VSCO based), increasing the contrast and raising the highlights.

I adore this photo. It has been one of my favourites for a while now. I love the simplicity and beauty in it.
