Environmental Wedding Portraiture | Kennebunkport Maine Wedding Photographers

What is environmental wedding portraiture? For us, it’s when we take our couples into the area surrounding their wedding location. We then find the right look in terms of direction, light, composition, and background. Then we direct the couple relative to what we we’d like to see them doing in the photo. Now and again, something different happens during this process, such as our #2 image. We’ll elaborate more below. #2 environmental wedding portraiture of 2016A great example of environmental wedding portraiture, Jennifer and Michael on the Kennebunkport breakwater

#2 of 2016 | Environmental Wedding Portraiture

First, let’s note that we just saw Jennifer and Mike two days ago in our #4 best wedding image of 2016. In that photo, Jennifer’s dad so happily embraced Mike at the beginning of the wedding ceremony. It was an abundantly rich day for winning photographs, to be sure.

About the photo:
We had envisioned sending Jennifer and Mike further down the breakwater rock wall for our shot. Yet, while walking toward the designated spot, something great happened. With Mike carrying Jennifer’s bouquet so she could drape her beautiful gown over her arm, we captured this moment. And with that striking and amazing cloud structure as the dramatic backdrop. As such, it blends the love we have for directed environmental portraiture with a genuine and very real moment.

This wedding was based at the classic, iconic, and stately Colony Hotel in Kennebunkport, Maine.
