Some time ago, I had a camera converted to infrared capture. If you’re not familiar, infrared photography yields a soft, romantic, fairy tale look to images. The greens of grass and foliage become white and ethereal. Here is an example:
If this were just ordinary black and white, the grass would be dark gray, and the leaves on the trees almost black. This particular couple loved this effect, and ordered a large wall portrait.
Once a camera is converted to infrared, it cannot be used for anything else, so most photographers shy away from having this done.
Here’s another example from the same shoot:
Magical, isn’t it?
I’ve always believed in making my photography stand out as different than others. Not only with infrared photos as shown here, but also with the use if drones for that wonderful aerial perspective that is unable to obtain any other way.
Looking at EVERYTHING in an image, even the shadows, for possible shots is a trademark of Celestial Wedding Photography.
For example, most photographers would not even notice this shot:
The couple loved it, and chose it for their album!
This image and the ones above it illustrate why my favorite time to shoot these romantic wedding photos is close to sunset. You can see that the sun is low in the sky by the long shadows and the very directional, dramatic light that produces. This is especially true of beach portraits, as in this engagement shot:
Notice how the setting sun lit up her hair, and rim-lit his body?
Or of course this one!
