Behind the Scenes of Beatrice’s Bridal Session

Back in September 2011 I had a fantastic time of working with Beatrice on her bridal photos.  Given the blistering summer we had here in San Antonio, we opted for a morning shoot at the McNay Art Museum.  An added bonus was the opportunity to shoot unencumbered by the throngs of other photographers who would show up later, it pays to not sleep in.  Of course I posted some of the images on the blog after the wedding, but I wanted to throw a couple more up for fun.

The first image is a behind the scenes shot.  Unfortunately I did not get my lighting set-up in this shot, but it was rather simple.  I was using two speedlights, one to camera left at a 45′ angle to Beatrice with an umbrella to soften the light.  I had the second bare speedlight set up camera right and just behind her to throw some highlight on her dress.  Of course I balanced everything with the sunlight to get a dramatic looking image.  The behind the scenes image was a quick shot to get an idea of the exposure for the sky.  The second image is the result of the setup.

Beatrice is Married – San Antonio wedding photographer

Bridal sessions are so much fun but it is hard to wait until after the wedding to post the photos.  In September Beatrice and I created some stunning bridal photographs at the McNay Art Museum.  While I unfortunately did not get to photography her wedding I did get to work with her on the gorgeous photos below.  Now that she is married (congrats Beatrice!) I can post these for all to see.
