Hotel Bel-Air Wedding PhotographerThis photograph was taken at one of my all-time favorite venues, the Dorchester Collection Hotel Bel-Air in Beverly Hills, CA. The natural landscape and architecture of the Hotel Bel-Air are truly a photographer's dream. The way the light bounces around the buildings creates magical lighting for wedding photographs. This photo is a great example of using the natural landscape to create a high-impact photo of the bride and groom. The row of trees in the background almost appears to be a beautiful wallpaper. I used my own posing system written in Picture Perfect Posing to give the bride something to do with her hands, while keeping the energy up. This is crucial in order to ensure that his expression matches the energy of the bride's expression. Both expressions should match. Her long wedding veil was the perfect prop to add a little edge to the photo. I also used a Canon flash in order to properly expose the couple, and a low shooting angle to remove the road from the photograph. I will never forget when I showed this photo in the back of my Canon camera to the wedding coordinator from Details Details. The coordinator's response was priceless.
