Portrait of the bride

Michael Greenberg’s bridal portraiture is most often created on location and utilizes a single light source. This image he made in St. Petersburg, Russia is a lovely example of his characteristic style. As a wedding photographer, it is often difficult to carry a lot of equipment so Michael needs to be resourceful and use all available lighting sources at his disposal. In addition to his strobes, he often makes use of lighting from windows and table lamps, using the softer light as a more flattering illumination for the skin of his subjects, while sometimes even replicating the magical “golden hour” light of 4pm.

Location: St. Petersburg, Russia.
