About a month ago I went on a trip to Grötvik with the bride and groom to pick a location for the wedding shoot. Successful in our mission, we decided that we’d return to the spot on the wedding day given that the weather conditons were right. Once it was time, it was high noon and not a cloud in the sky as far as the eye could see.
As a wedding photographer you don’t get to pick the time of day to shoot, it’s all about adapting. In this case I had to fight some extremely harsh light and I think I pulled it off. I used a trick I learned from watching Cliff Mautner seminars on YouTube: put your subject between you and the sun and meter accordingly.
”You can’t shoot into the sun like that, can you?” That gets old!
I simply had to get a shot of the bridal bouquet that Emelie made herself!
Heels on the rocks wouldn't have worked out. The solution: white Converse sneakers!
