Wedding Wednesday | The Window Effect in Your Getting Ready Space

August 3, 2016

I’m Kara.
When I'm not photographing weddings, you can usually find me in my home office with snuggly puppies at my feet! Grab a drink (a cup of decaf, mojito, or a glass of rosé if you're like me), kick up your feet, and stay awhile!

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. 

These images speak for themselves and truly represent a bride’s elegance on her wedding day. I LOVE utilizing spaces and challenging my creativity. My advice? Always choose a getting ready space with lots of window light and a clean slate for the prettiest getting ready photos!
