Is it Okay to Use Windows in Wedding Photos?

I say yes! I love to use window light inside the rooms where the Bridal party is getting ready. When I’m photographing weddings my couples are often amused at some of the things I’ll do to get an awesome photograph. Like this one where I asked Derek to lean upon the window - on the inside. I then said “wait there”, I ran outside to the other side of the window and got this photo which I love. I hope you do too. I was photographing Simone and Dereks wedding at Little Gardens Wedding Venue in Lawrenceville, Georgia. The Bride and Groom getting ready shots are so important as they are the images that often start the wedding day celebrations. 

I’ve been able to get very creative with shooting Brides, Grooms and both Brides and Grooms together using reflections, shooting through antique windows and decorative windows etc over the years. There are a few examples in my wedding gallery click here  Wedding Gallery
