Pose, Frame, Capture—Just Before the Sun Disappears
Braden Young ventured to Utah’s Little Sahara Sand Dunes with this couple, and as the sun was setting, he asked them to scale one more sand dune. “We were losing light very quickly,” he recalls. “Right as they reached the top of the dune, I instructed them [where to look] and the last rays of golden light hit them perfectly.”
Photographer Uses Color to Focus on Bridal Ceremony
Peter Olvera went as close as he could without interfering in the intimate exchange of vows. But he had another challenge on his mind: “I wanted to ‘hide’ the guests from the background with the color wall they had at the ceremony.”
Elopement Photographer vs. White, Windy Winter Wonderland
Afton Flynn (of Film and Forest Photography) accompanied this eloping couple to Banff National Park where it had snowed the night before. Here, “a fierce wind gust whipped up fresh snow off the frozen lake and within seconds, we were engulfed in a full sheet of white,” Flynn says. “Luckily, the warm car was only meters away, but for one brief moment, I caught the groom holding on tightly to his bride before the viewfinder went white.”
Photographer’s Portraits Highlight Beauty, Challenge Perceptions of Black Men
Photographer Adrian Octavius Walker captured this portrait of Mychael Jamal for his series We Matter, a collection of conceptual portraits that aim to prod traditions surrounding beauty and perceptions of Black men in America. This photo was part of See in Black, a joint effort of 80+ Black photographers who sold original prints to benefit five different nonprofits that are working to dismantle white supremacy and systemic oppression.
Bride and Groom’s Private ‘First Dance’ at Sunset Portrait Session
Carla Towill of The Unbridled wandered these gardens with the couple at sunset just before they would all head into the reception for the couple’s first dance. For a moment, though, she asked the couple “to have a secret first dance here before they went in to do their official one with their guests,” she says. “I saw the low light coming in through the trees and knew this was the spot. It was a wonderfully intimate moment to witness—the calm before the storm.”
