Mountaintop Bride & Groom Portrait

This challenging early-afternoon wedding portrait features mountainous terrain backgrounds.

As a wedding photographer, you can't always choose where or when you're able to take event photographs. This image was taken 3:30 PM on a sunny day. Although there were billowing clouds, they provided no shade.

To overcome the harsh sunlight, I found a crest where the bride and groom could stand with the sun behind them. I then changed my camera exposure to darken the sky and used an off-camera unmodified Profoto strobe as a direct light source.
