Having the ability to use flash effectively gives me so many more options for changing the look of a photo session quickly. I originally saw this in my mind as completely natural light and after a took the photo I did really like it but I wanted to make that amazing dress pop from the background. There were such amazing deep greens in the shadows of the trees and with natural light I wasn't able to portray the atmosphere in amongst the trees.
So with a little pop of flash on the beautiful bride to be I got her to really stand out from the background and give the feeling of the forrest at the same time. I didn't even have to move the bride or pose, I just changed lens and added a flash and we got a whole new look.
This is one of my favorite images from the shoot which was a very rainy day but the whole shoot was made to feel warm and ethereal just by using light in it's best way. I love photography for that very reason.
