The Classic Bridal Portrait with Stephanie by Rick

I love a classic bridal portrait.  There is a huge difference between a classic portrait and a traditional portrait.  A classic portrait reminds me of the classic images of Audrey Hepburn.  It's all about the posing, the lighting, and it's timeless.    I've seen a lot of fads come and go over my years as a wedding photographer in the Quad Cities, but a classic bridal portrait stands the test of time and never goes out of style.  

A traditional image is simply a bride at the altar, looking at the camera and smiling. 

Here are a few classic bridal portraits from Stephanie and Ian's wedding on June 20th.

Brian and Noelle in the Rain by Rick

Brian and Noelle 06-13-15

We have had eleven inches of rain in the Quad Cities in June, so it goes without saying that it has rained on a lot of weddings in 2015!  I was about to do a night session with Brian and Noelle outside The University Club in Moline, and it started to come down like a monsoon.  I could have left because my contracted time was up, but I stuck around for about a half hour to see if the rain would subside.  It never did, but Brian and Noelle had a Groomsmen hold an umbrella over me to protect my camera gear, and we went out on to Fifth avenue in Moline for a quick session.  And a stroke of luck...this car pulled up and stopped for us to finish, and lit up all the raindrops on the left side of the image.
