Wedding Planning Tip: "Think about the lighting if you want good night images"
We had the honor of second shooting a wedding in Calgary during our Alberta Expedition.
I was amazed at the beauty the bride and groom put into their reception area; so much in fact, I wanted you to witness the important role light plays in photography.
If you have a night wedding/reception, you NEED light!
Night weddings are popular. It's a cooler time of day, the sun is setting, giving off that magic hour light we love to photograph, and there's also something romantic about having a wedding party at night. As awesome as a night wedding may seem, you still need to plan on having light for your photographer and videographer. Today's camera's may help good photographers create their images, but without light, the magic isn't going to happen.
