I returned on Sunday afternoon from photographing Alissa and Paul’s wedding at the Buffalo Trace Distillery in Frankfort, Kentucky. One of the items on their “wish list” of photographs was a portrait that highlighted the industrial look and feel of the distillery. Here, we photographed them adjacent to a warehouse, standing on the tracks used to roll barrels of aged bourbon to the bottling plant.
We used three lights for this portrait: the key was in an umbrella on camera left, with a fill held by my partner on camera right. The yellow backwash for the brick was created with a flash behind the bride and groom (their wedding colors were yellow and orange.) I think this light really helps to separate them from the wall behind them and gives the image more of a three-dimensional appearance.
More to come!
