Even for a documentary, or candid, wedding photographer, portraits are typically a part of wedding day photography coverage. It's great to take a moment to capture a classic portrait but it doesn't have to carve into your experience as a groom on the wedding day. Portraits should be efficient, natural, and capture the style of your wedding day.
This portrait was taken downstairs in the billiard room just after photographing lots of candids of the groomsmen, dad's, and ring bearer getting ready. I used the existing window light to create a high-contrast, interesting image of the groom and included some of the details of this gentleman's lounge including the birch logs. I love this portrait because of the way the light falls on the groom and the stark contrast in the birch trees behind him.
Lord Thompson Manor is a gorgeous location - make sure you hire someone experienced with all types of lighting conditions because this wedding reception venue in Thompson, Connecticut has it all!
