Shooting outdoor portraits during the winter months in New Jersey can be dicey and once the temperatures start going south, working quickly and efficiently is a number one priority. Wedding photographer Vanessa Joy is based in Freehold New Jersey and she knows the drill quite well.
This wedding portrait was taken on a rather chilly late fall evening at the Ashford Estate in Allentown NJ. Fortunately the surrounding landscape was conveniently lit with gelled lights by the catering facility, allowing her assistants to concentrate on lighting the newlyweds.
