Downtown Winter Wedding in Harsh Light

Millenium Gate Museum

Sometimes, as wedding photographers, we don’t always have the ideal photo conditions. Every wedding comes with a unique set of challenges. When it comes to this downtown Atlanta wedding – we’ll be battling middle of the day winter sun and extremely harsh light with little to no shade or cloud cover.

Normally, I love to be open with my couples and discuss how lighting and times of day affect the overall look of their photos, but this venue has strict guidelines on when you can have weddings and events. For me, it’s a welcome challenge to be able to work my technical skills and find ways to compose to minimize the effect of the harsh noon sun as much as possible.
