I almost exclusively shoot in natural light especially when I have the luxury of being outdoors, but this bridal session at Glencairn Gardens with April was a little different. I decided to test drive my softbox and Flashpoint monolight on location for the first time. Aside from the sweltering heat, things were going great until I encountered an unpleasant hiccup – my light and soft box slammed into the ground as the wind was making rounds. I was pretty devastated, but luckily, nothing broke…only a few cosmetic issues. So as a photographer, though a bit broken in spirit, I persevered to get the best shots I possibly could and I’m really pleased with the results. April was such an affable bride to work with and made this entire shoot so much more seamless. I couldn’t be happier shooting her wedding!
