Bridal Portraits

Rachel | Bridal Portraits | Powhatan Virginia Wedding Photography

Sometimes, all you really need is an open field and a gorgeous bride to make bridal portrait magic happen. Rachel and I¬†shot a little earlier in the day than I typically do for beauty images, but I couldn’t be happier with how these images turned out. The sunlight really made for some dramatic photos, and I had a blast experimenting with different ways of blending flash into the natural light. The magic of off-camera flash is that you really aren’t limited to only shooting during the golden hour. I absolutely love how the Cactus flashes work with the MagMod system for a really quick and portable lighting setup. How does one little round blob of rubber create light nearly as soft as my softboxes and umbrellas!? The lightweight nature of the setup was super important as well, as I was still pretty grotesquely pregnant at the time. I’ll be sharing images from Rachel and Dustin’s wedding at the same venue soon (be prepared for even more pretty)!
