Grand Summit Hotel Wedding

Rachel & John were married at The Grand Summit Hotel in Summit, New Jersey on June 7th, 2013. The great thing about having a wedding at the Grand Summit Hotel is that the bride, groom and their entire wedding party can get ready on location. This helps tremendously with timing on the day of your wedding. If everyone involved in your wedding doesn’t have to travel from one location to the next, you can spend more time being together and less time driving. A big plus for everyone. Rachel & John’s family and friends were wonderful to work with. Everyone was extremely happy on their wedding day and they all pitched together to help make their day a big success. The Grand Summit Hotel was very accommodating and made sure the bride and groom had everything they needed throughout the day.

Grand Summit Hotel Wedding - Here you can see the groom standing in front of a large window having his flower pinned on his jacket on the morning of his wedding day.During the getting ready portion of the day I frequently turn off all the interior lights in a room and prefer to just use simple window lighting to create my photographs. Having one light source to deal with helps to simplify my lighting. It also helps because you are not mixing color temperatures in your photographs. Interior lighting photographs very yellow, while outdoor sun photographs blue. Mixing the two lights can result in a less than desirable image.

Grand Summit Hotel Wedding - A groom's father pins his flower to his jacket under the light of an open window.You can create very powerful images with just one light source. The key to creating such an photograph is knowing how to use shadow and light to create depth and form. Flat lighting is very boring and should be avoided at all costs.

If I’m allowed to shoot behind my couple I enjoy photographing their first kiss with their friends and family in the background. That way you also get to see everyone’s reactions to the bride and grooms first kiss.

When shooting the decor of a wedding day, I always shoot with my Canon 35 1.4 lens and use very shallow depth of field. This gives my photographs a very glittery look to them.
