We had the bride stand at a location that surrounded her of beautiful flowers. We asked her to lift one side of her dress. We enjoyed setting the stage by having her stand at a particular location and we then asked her to play with her dress. Every movement the bride took added to the variety of photographs we captured. Once the brides begin to have fun as she posing, her posture and facial expression begin to convey a story. It will appear natural and candid. We are always aiming to photograph a bride or groom at their best. We try to avoid posing a person as much as possible. We are always looking for that natural look and genuine facial expression. There are times we need to distract the bride or groom, which allows them to look natural. Triggering a laughter that will give us that candid look. Regardless of what we ask the bride or groom to do, we’ll always strive to photograph them at the right moment. The Ashford Estates at Allentown New Jersey is a spectacular venue that offers so much. The venue is elegant and the architectural features of the building are beautiful. The grounds are definitely maintained all year around and depending on the season, you are guaranteed to see blooming flowers. The photo opportunities at this wedding venue are endless. When capturing candid or photojournalistic photos, we love to use our 70-200mm lens. It allows us to keep our distance from a person or couple, as they’re absorbed with what is occurring in front of them. The subject will totally forget that we are there photographing every moment or interaction. This lens also provides a look that is by far pleasing. Objects in the distance are compressed and it will appear closer to the person being photographed. The objects in the distance will also become blurred and only provide a hint of the actual details.
