It happened all on it’s own and I was simply there with the know-how to capture it in it’s fullness.
It’s funny because I went through my motions and I was outwardly calm but I knew what was happening was special and I was a giddy little school boy inside.
I had to play with the WB a little because there comes a point where the camera is fooled… it must believe that nothing can normally be that color and wants to soothen it.
But i told that camera, this is real baby, bring out all the color you can.
If your life is anything like that sunset on your wedding day… well it’s gonna be something special
It was a wonderful moment for me… one of the best. But had I been ill prepared it could have been amongst the worst experiences of my photography.
So what’s the lesson for the Photograph-ees: You can’t just expect things to happen, you need to be willing and creative enough to put yourself in positions where things can happen, if fate smiles down on you as well.
And if possible pick a photographer that can help play with that fate just a bit more and improve those odds.
