This high end Phoenix Arizona wedding photographer has surprisingly good prices. Packages are available for every budget. Jerry Ferguson Photography has photographed weddings at just about every venue in the metro Phoenix area, and surrounding cities of Mesa, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Tempe, Chandler, Carefree, Glendale, Avondale, Paradise Valley and other areas of the valley.
We photographed this couple today at the Mesa Arizona Temple near Phoenix, Arizona. For these photos we wanted to evoke a painterly ‘Caravaggio’ feel, so we used a soft/hard lighting scheme in combination with some late afternoon sunlight. The lighting is really the key here.
Sarah and Jerry teamed up on this one, with Sarah clicking the shutter as Jerry arranged lights. Perry Sevey shot did some wedding videography, and did an excellent job as always. For the photo above, Jerry was actually hiding behind that tree on the left, holding a flash which is providing the ‘spotlight’ on the bride and groom’s faces.
Another flash was placed behind a shoot-through umbrella camera-left to provide just a touch of fill in the shadows. And the sun finished off the rest of the photo, providing that warm glowing light from the right side of the photo.
The photo above is a fun shot of the groom spinning the bride.
