The Day After Portrait Session
Kim knew she wanted some photos in Yosemite National Park, but there was no time between the ceremony and reception. She thought about taking photos before hand, but was concerned about getting her dress dirty. The Day After portrait session was the perfect solution!
The pears were an accent throughout the wedding – so we brought them along.
Kim wanted some photos of their rings, so I thought we could try a few different angles.
This is my favorite ring shot – I especially love the left side of the veil that caught the wind just right. The rings represent their marriage and the pears symbolize the newlywed’s last name.
One of the reasons I love these sessions is that no one is rushed. This gives me the chance to try new things. I really loved the light in the park and used available light in a few different ways.
We made our way to the Chapel
for more photos.
I wanted to this photo to look like an old daguerreotype
so I used a new lens for this effect and then toned the image in sepia. Kim’s veil really gives the photo a vintage feel. That and their pose. If you look at the photo above this it almost doesn’t look like the same couple!
I love getting muddy if it means photos like these!
I couldn’t resist this shot – Anyone know where the inspiration came from?
Many thanks to Kim and Ryan! Michael and I had an awesome time at your wedding and we loved the photo time with you afterwards. Special thanks to Ryan for this shoot. Kim told me he doesn’t like posing for photos – but he sure is a natural isn’t he?
And they lived Happily Ever After!
