Dealing with bright sunlight can either be intimidating for a photographer or a blessing. For myself, I love working in these types of lighting conditions because it helps me think outside of the ordinary. In this case, I threw in some off camera flash to highlight the groom and then the sunlight just highlighted the groomsmen. I just love the casual nature of this image because not all wedding party images have to be completely posed. Mind you, I did give some direction for this image but the end result doesn't really suggest that. I absolutely love this hotel for couples and wedding party getting ready. The natural light in the penthouse is amazing and lent itself to some brilliant images the day of their wedding. The bride and the bridesmaids got ready in the huge living room area which was perfect for hair and makeup and the groom and groomsmen got ready in the bedroom. The balcony wraps all around both rooms and the views are out of this world. It was awesome being able to see the spires of St. Dunstan Basilica in the near distance where they were married. If you are considering a hotel for your guests to stay and where you can get ready for your wedding, definitely put the Holman Grand on your list.
