Spotting Good Wedding Photography - Dynamic Lighting

As portrait artists we strive to schedule our session to take advantage of the prettiest light of the day. Weddings don't allow that kind of luxury, so it is essential that your chosen photographer be able to read light at, well, the speed of light.

As you are interviewing photographers examine their portfolios for a range of variation in the images. Are the photos flat or are the faces softly rounded with dimension to them? Can you see a sparkle in eyes? Does this artist utilize different lighting situations such as edge lighting to create drama in her images?

Lighting is the most important element in good wedding photography. Make sure your chosen photographer can see the light.
