Wedding Photographer Iñaki Lungarán
Castilla-La Mancha, Toledo
I was born in 1981 between flashlights and cameras in my parents old photo-study. I grew up and played between photo sessions and film rolls, developed pictures and camera-lenses. I am Inaki Lungaran and I defend wedding photography as being one of the most artistic and branches of documentary that exist in the world. During a wedding, my main goal is the documentary part of it, my final purpose to record and document a wedding with all its emotive moments, smiles and tears, nerves and enthusiasm. This nuptial event goes through my eyes and my mission is not to miss a single detail. I can’t of course, forget the technical elements of photography, where my continuous lights and flashes enhance the image and gives it further visual impact.
This photographic report was one of the most emotive weddings that I recall shooting to date. A couple that carry love everywhere and have a very fraternal relationship with their faithful friends and loved-ones. They came close so they could see their self-reflection in a mirror, without a shadow of a doubt, this has been one of the most artistic image I have ever done. Rear-lit and reflections, an explosion of colour and a lot of love.
This photo technique is rear-lit and the light reflected on the mirror. Shot with my Nikon DF camera and with a 35 mm, 1,4 and 160/s with a ISo of 100. I really hope you like it!
The most technical part of this image is being able to recognizing and interpret the different lights and shadows of a sunset. I was admiring and studying the light when the couple’s friends surprisingly approached to congratulate them. From my perspective, I could only spot the rear-lit; the silhouettes of those truthful friends but in the mirror the last rays of sunlight were reflected on the groom and bride’s faces.
This couple had been very emotive but also terribly funny throughout the day! They definitely put all their bets on a very artistic photography approach for their very special wedding day.
