How I Got The Shot With Narvold Photography

1. A Glimpse Behind-The-Scene Of An Engagement

This image was shot with all-natural lighting on an overcast day at the family's home in Central Wisconsin. I can't say no to a long dirt road. I love all the earthy tones — from the trees to the outfits the couple picked - it just works!With the fall colors, leading lines, and distance of the couple, I knew this was an excellent opportunity for a wall-hanger image. So, I used the Brenizer Method to capture nine separate photos to stitch together later to create some awesome depth.I always like to end with dip images. The couple is usually warmed up and comfortable by this point. So I have them go for it!

2. A Candid Wedding Photo In The Barn

This image was taken just after a first look with the couple at the beautiful The Enchanted Barn in Hillsdale, Wisconsin. I love the rustic, moody vibes paired with the all-natural lighting.

Sometimes, you have to be ready to capture a moment. I had just finished some shots inside the barn and still had my exposure set for indoors. I just looked up to follow them outside and loved the light coming through the door. It's got to be quick!

3. Capturing Emotions In Wedding Photos

This moment was amazing! We had been taking photos all day, and the couple just had dinner, so we wanted to get some golden hour shots. This point in the day is by far my favorite. Not only did we have an excellent opportunity to capture stunning images with sunset lighting, but it was a chance for the couple to pull away from the wedding craziness and just be together after the "I do's." Standing in the middle of a field, it was so intimate.

For shots like these, I ask my groom to always look at her! I ask him to smell her hair, which sounds silly, but he always gets a cute smile.

I just love the pure emotion of this shot. As I said before, you can tell it felt great for the couple to get away and be together.
