For Photographers: Image Settings and More! / by Jessica Bordner

It's BUSY season!! Which means I get to work with some amazing couples and shoot some beautiful weddings this month. As most of you may know, one of the things I love most about my job is being apart of such an inspiring community of creatives. I love to learn, and I love to share. I am still learning everyday but I wanted to start a monthly series on questions and answers, tips on posing and more! If you want to hear about something specific please feel free to write it! I think this will be fun!

Today I wanted to kick off this first blog post with some camera settings and before and afters from this weekends beautiful wedding!

This image of my BEAUTIFUL bride Raquel was taken about 3 hours before sunset in high sun. I found some open shade with this gorgeous oak tree and BAM, gorgeous speckled light.

Next Up!!!! My awesome couple Raquel and Jason moments after they wed! Taken outside the doors of the church with both side and back light. This was the kind of shade you want to find when it's 3pm in Florida!

Last but not least the beautiful Bridal Party!!!!!!! Taken in the same spot as the bridal portrait above. I've included a before and after shot as well! I try my hardest to shoot almost exactly how I want my final image to look with a little color correction and tweaking for that soft airy look.
