As a professional wedding photographer located on Long Island, we have to be well versed in all styles of photography. One of our favorite photography styles is known as light and airy. This means it is more candid and photojournalistic type of imagery. No need for fancy posing techniques, this type of image is more lifestyle wedding photography.
This image was taken at Flowerfields Celebrations in St James NY. At this point of the wedding day, we already photographed the brides details such as her weddings dress, engagement ring, wedding bands and bridal bouquet.
After these images were taken, we moved on to the first look, then photographed some fun bridal party photos and traditional family portraits. Prior to the wedding the groom contacted our office located in Lindenhurst Long Island and told us that he planned to surprise his bride-to-be with a horse. While we were doing the couples portraits the horse came and the brides reaction was priceless. We took many candid photos of the bride as she saw her surprise walking down Flowerfields entranceway. After the initial reaction was photographed in a photojournalistic style I decided to take a few more light and airy wedding photos of the newlyweds with their horse.
Photos like these always make it in the wedding album and often enough are chosen for the Bride and Grooms thank you cards.
