Love Under The Sun

Recently, I had the pleasure of photographing a wedding at the stunning Marin Art and Garden Center on a very sunny day. The couple looked impeccable; he wore a burgundy coat that perfectly complemented her long, flowing white dress. Her trademark deep red lipstick created a striking contrast with her dress, adding a touch of elegance and drama to every shot.

As a wedding photographer, shooting on extremely hot days presents unique challenges. The bright sun creates very hard shadows, making it necessary to think creatively and adapt quickly. Finding the right balance between light and shadow is essential to capturing beautiful, flattering photos.

To overcome the harsh lighting, I focused on maximizing the available shadows. The Marin Art and Garden Center provided plenty of opportunities to play with light and shade, allowing me to create stunning, dynamic images. Utilizing natural elements like trees and the pergola, I was able to soften the sunlight and produce photos that highlight the couple's love and joy without the harshness of direct sun.

The couple's attention to detail made the day even more special. About 100 friends and family gathered to celebrate in the open field in front of the pergola. Guests were provided with small hand fans and elegant, paper-like umbrellas to stay cool and comfortable, adding a charming and practical touch to the festivities.

Despite the heat, the love and happiness of the day shone through in every frame. From the candid moments of laughter to the tender glances shared between the couple, each photo tells the story of their special day. The sunny weather, while challenging, added a warm and vibrant backdrop to their celebration.

Photographing weddings on hot, sunny days can be complex, but it's also incredibly rewarding. By embracing the challenges and thinking creatively, I was able to capture the beauty and joy of this unforgettable wedding at the Marin Art and Garden Center. It was an honor to be part of their day and to create lasting memories for the couple and their loved ones.

If you're planning a wedding and looking for a photographer who can handle any conditions while capturing your special moments beautifully, feel free to reach out. I'd love to help bring your vision to life!
