JP Elario is a second-generation wedding/portrait photographer based in Albany NY. His father started the business back in the 80’s, and JP – now 33, started shooting weddings when he was eleven.
Elario’s photograph of the bride and groom was taken on a tree-lined pathway he has shot on numerous times, though usually earlier in the day when the sun casts a warmer, low-angle wash of light across the scene. On this particular day, however, the hour was late and the sun had already dropped behind the treetops. With the light quickly fading Elario and his assistants got down to business.
