This bride was wedding in the limousine before her wedding ceremony at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Los Angeles.
The funny thing about photographing someone in the limousine is that the light is almost always poor and thus in order to create a great shot, you have to understand light in such a way as to modify the position of subjects as well as the source of the light including open doors and windows that are rolled down. For this photo, I wanted to take it to a different level and not only showcase the bride, but also the city view around her. To do that I first exposed for the city view, and then asked the bride to roll down her window. I then cracked a joke or said something sweet about her fiancé, and she gave a little laugh. It's simple moments like these that make the spontaneous and natural, candid feeling photographs that you have come to expect from my wedding photography coverage. And for couples with LA sensibilities in terms of my reportage style, this is perfect for them.
