I decided to stay later at this wedding having seen that the sky had the potential to be dramatic and colourful as dusk fell. I kept checking the lighting and sky through a couple

I took several pictures until, testing different positions in the hands of my assistant and girlfriend. It was shot from above and I closed in on the frame to just get the yellow colour of the table.
The photo was taken with a Nikon D610 and 50mm lens, very affordable equipment. Without any extra light apart from the sunlight. In post production I added a little contrast and adjusted the image corners that had left the table, as it was relatively a small space to work on. I knew I could do this, so it wasn't too much of an issue when capturing the image.
The couple loved this shot and it was the opening image in their beautiful album that I presented to them. I was surprised because the couple were a little conservative and sometimes conservative couples don't go for these kind of images, they loved the results and were very surprised.
The wedding was in the city of Montenegro, south of Brazil, near Porto Alegre.
