Photographing a wedding at Raphael's Vineyard is so much fun. They have so many beautiful photography opportunities to create artistic and modern wedding images.
This photo was taken in Raphael's Vineyard's wine cellar. Because we have photographed many weddings at this venue, I wanted to create something unique for the bride. We used a variety of backgrounds including the wine barrels, hallway, winding staircase, walls and other cellar appropriate backgrounds. When I saw this mirror, I knew I could create an image that would be totally different than something we have already created. I positioned the couple and lit them with my speedlight. I had them do a variety of poses including kissing each other, looking at the camera, looking away from the camera and some silly poses also. My goal is to give each couple an array of styles and poses, so when they look back at their wedding gallery they have many options to choose from.
Throughout the day we used the venue in many ways. Our clients typically book this venue to use the Vineyards for their couples portraits. Which we were glad to do. I used a variety of styles including light and airy as well as a more artistic approach. This allows the newlyweds to have a diverse selection of images to choose from when selecting photos for their album.
