Wedding in Topeka, KS

It was a chilly day in the capital city of Kansas. The ceremony was beautiful and the newlyweds pretty much let me do my own thing. The one thing the bride told me she specifically wanted was sunset photos on the rooftop of the venue. Never before had sunset photos been more thrilling for me. It was just me and the couple (and the attendant), basking in all the sun's glory. The light provided some magical moments, and I was thrilled to be able to capture them on my camera.

Tips for those looking for wedding photos: 1) I highly encourage you to provide adequate time for wedding party photos. One hour minimum is what I would aim for because even if you don't think you want that many, you never know. Plus, weddings are notoriously behind on schedule, and one hour would help provide a cushion. I also know, from experience, that the first 15-20 minutes of a photoshoot tend to be lower in quality than the rest as I familiarize myself with my surroundings and get comfortable with my subjects. 2) If it's not cloudy, get golden hour photos with your loved one - you won't regret it.
