An unexpected lens flare set this image apart… it seemed to fit this couple so well! They dance in their real life so dancing a little after they had their first look was natural for them… I think this was to be sure her long dress wouldn’t interfere with their footwork. ;0)
I told Madeline and Lee that I would be shooting snippets of their wedding with a Lensbaby and that we could expect some interesting things to come of it. It’s a wonderful little optic that bends the light and the focal plane. I have been using it on and off since 2004 and I like the unexpected nuances… it makes me see differently. In this case, I saw the lens flare come and go but didn’t note the rainbow effect until much later… what a pleasant surprise!
Plan your wedding carefully but be open to the possibilities, you’ll be glad you did.
