I had the pleasure of shooting Laura & Matt’s wedding in Dayton, OH this past weekend. We had a great time, and a quick ceremony meant more time for shooting portraits at Benham’s Grove. The change in the quality of light when moving from inside a church to outdoors beneath an overcast sky is remarkable. The clouds function as a giant softbox, creating a light that wraps around the subject in a very even, forgiving manner. I LOVE shooting in this type of light. Remember when scheduling your wedding – noon = harsh, ugly shadows and dusk/cloudy = beautiful, soft lighting.

I am looking forward to getting the rest of the images ready! Enjoy the beautiful spring weather here in Dayton! I know I am..
