FINDING THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHY TOOLS FOR THE JOB

Over and over again, I hear couples ask about tricky lighting situations and dark spaces. What will it be like when the sun sets, what about the dark ceremony space?

Those are absolutely things that couples should worry about when they are finding a wedding photographer. And even though the specific answers can matter a lot, there are a lot of right answers.

The most important part is HOW your photographer answers you – are they concerned about changing your day or hoping for the right conditions? Or are they able to capture something amazing however your day unfolds?

And so I talk a lot about the ways in which I am a problem solver as well as a photography – documenting the day that you are planning. Over the years, I’ve focused a lot on the darker spaces I photograph, I began talking a lot about lighting – about finding unexpected ways to light and photograph spaces, about shooting in dark spaces, and at night; about not being worried about complicated spaces. And that is true, I love problem solving in challenging spaces, bringing in light and dark to create images that make you feel like you are right there in the mix of things.

But let me also say this: sometimes the challenge is to capture the feeling of the sun filtering through the leaves, to capture the warmth of the summer and the joy of the brightness.

To know which tools to use to capture this day, and these two people and their families and guests.

Because having a good tool is only useful if you know when to use it, and when to leave it be.

ABOUT THEADORE WIRTH CHALET FOR WEDDINGS

Theodore Wirth park is part of the Minneapolis parks system, and (in my opinion) the classiest building they have for weddings and events. It has large timber beams and an overall lodge feel, and the fireplace is a perfect backdrop for ceremonies and dancing.

The lower level houses the equipment for the public golf course that surrounds the chalet, so there are occasional golf carts whizzing by the paths.

When the weather is nice, the terrace is probably the best place to be in Minneapolis.
