The steps in the lobby of the Legendary Park Plaza are frequently featured in the background of my photographs in that area.
This simple seated portrait of the bridegroom in this downtown Los Angeles wedding venue is right in line with my visual tastes as a wedding photographer. First of all, the area is "clean" and simple. The couple is lit with a soft, flat light that is complementary to almost every subject. The horizon line, in this case the line between the stairs and the marble floor, is perfectly level and well below the head and shoulders of my subjects. The position of me relative to the chairs used by the bride and groom is perfectly symmetrical — another sign that it is a Rob Greer original. As a final note, the expression on the bride and groom is perfectly natural — a simple happiness. As one of perhaps thousands of other wedding photographers in Los Angeles, it's important to have a style that is recognizable and different from everyone else. After more than a decade as a wedding photographer, I feel that my work is finally achieved that kind of recognizability. I hope that you see that too.
