Family Portraits at a Wedding

At a recent family wedding in Virginia, I was, thankfully, not the official photographer. So, I had the pleasure of just taking the pictures I chose to. I found a great setup to do some portraits – window light with a blank, beige wall to use as a backdrop. No flash needed for any of these pictures. Simple is best!

The bride was one of  my Muslim nieces, so you will see some of the women covered in these photographs. Also, most of the women wore green dresses and the men (including Uncle Blake) wore green ties. Green is an important color in the Islamic faith.

As you can see, the window light provides a beautiful, soft wrap-around light, that works well for individual and group images. This is a handsome family, no?

Where is the bride? Here’s one candid image of her, below, with the flower girl.

Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.
