Low-Light Weddings

Low-light weddings provide a unique opportunity that we are always up for. While it may seem daunting, it can create a romantic and intimate feel that other lighting situations can't. Low-light weddings are often in darker churches but can also be in more unique settings like nightclubs, theaters or just outdoor venues at night. Whatever your venue and lighting, we are more than ready and in fact, very excited about the challenge! Take a look at some examples of these unique circumstances in which we photographed in little to no light at all.
