Wedding Wednesday | The Window Effect in Your Getting Ready Space

As a natural light on-location photographer, I am constantly looking for light. Sources of light, harshness of light, types of light... Light! 

So, when it comes to a wedding day getting ready space, I always recommend to my couples that they choose a getting ready location that offers a clean slate and lot of yummy window light. Yep, that's right, natural light! You guessed it!

In these beautiful getting ready spaces with the bride, I feel most creative with a clean slate. I photograph details, finishing touches, and most importantly, the bride in her wedding dress. After the bride is dressed and ready, I try to take a few minutes to photograph her using "the window effect"... AKA beautiful bridal portraits using natural window light.
