Philadelphia Wedding receptions at Down Town Club in always look extraordinary beautiful. Their interior decor is impeccable and it is always such a treat to work at this gorgeous venue.
This photo was taken during the wedding reception. The father of the bride was saying his speech and it was a sweet moment to both witness and document how touching was that speech for the bride and how she was reacting on her father's words. These are the moments that tell the couple's story in a more profound emotional way. As a bride, you might not even notice some of the little moments happening around you on a wedding day, but how great it is to look at your wedding photos after the Big Day and just relive it all over again together with your loved ones. This is what makes wedding photography so important and finding the right person to document your wedding day is crucial.
As you can see on this photograph, we didn't want to lit the entire scene. The bride and groom had to be clearly separated from the background so all the attention is on them and their expressions. To achieve this kind of effect, there was one gridded off camera flash used to the left of the sweetheart table.
