"Prettiest Day Of The Year!"
©David A. Ziser
OK, this isn’t strictly a wedding photograph but it was made on the day of the wedding at the couples chosen venue last Saturday. So, I guess it is a wedding photograph, right ;~) I mentioned to my couple on Saturday, that they had about the best day of the year on which to be married. The temperature was ideal, the location was perfect, and the sky - all day and evening long, was astoundingly beautiful.
I made this image right after I photographed the bride and groom with this sunset as a backdrop. Nature’s beauty persisted well into the evening and I just had to get a few more images. Besides the wedding and reception were outdoors and everyone had the opportunity to enjoy not only the wedding celebration but also Mother Nature’s beauty. This is just an example of the kind of photographs I capture on the wedding day that will serve as perfect backgrounds for the album we’ll eventually design for the couple.
In addition to that, this is simply a beautiful sunset landscape image and can be truly enjoyed on it’s own merit. I choose a super wide angle lens to capture the full effect of the clouds spreading across the sky and lake. A tweak or two in Lightroom 4 brought out all the detail and color of this fabulous scene. When all is said and done, what can I say, I really like it.
