Hotel Venue Grooms Portrait

These gay grooms posed in front of their hotel wedding venue entry for the striking portrait.

This hotel is well known for its mid century modern West facing entry. The graphic wall makes for an interesting and clean backdrop.

However, this location is always busy as it's where the valet takes cars and where everyone enters and leaves the hotel. It took wrangling to make sure the cars were gone and the people hidden before taking this photograph.

You'll note that the subjects are presented in full sun. Technically, this is a more difficult photograph to capture than one in open shade. To overcome the sun, and the shadows that would otherwise be present, I asked the couple to face into the sun, closer eyes, and then open them on a count of three.
