Gold Grid Favorites: Nick

Bph5zfAoRoKzIbbXSLwOGl3AUGZJqCFUerl-fay3rlwFavorite wedding day photo: I really like this image for a number of reasons. Not only does it capture the classic and refined style of the couple, but it represents a great degree of flexibility and planning. One of the most important lessons I was taught by my first professional mentors was to always have your mind open to pre-visualize a composition. The weather was very unpredictable on Hannah & Steve’s wedding day (as most in Chicago), so I went down to the Lyric Opera the day before to find locations for portraits. I went down at approximately the same time that we would be there the next day and found amazing shafts of light coming through the pillars of this iconic building. I knew this would be a perfect location the following day. It’s always very fun to see planning pay off, particularly when it captures the essence of a couple that they can hold onto forever.
