In this blog, we have put together a list of stunning images captured by some of our customers.

Clear shapes, bold outlines, and background lighting play a major role in getting those stunning silhouettes that just leave the viewer in awe. Just as in this image captured by Laibel Schwartz Photography. The bokeh in the photo adds to the wow element.

Sunsets and sunrises often bring out the best silhouettes. They fill the background with gorgeous color variations of crimson, blue, and purple. It’s lovely how the couples are posed, and the fences act as a frame in this photograph by Robb McCormick.

A Hint Of Humor

“Fly me to the moon,” said the groom, and the bride clearly had the Superwoman veil for it. Adding a hint of humor to a simple photo is one of the easiest ways to make it stand out. It’s also a great way to leave the viewer with a smile on their face.

Epic Backgrounds

Playing peek-a-boo with the sun can sometimes create such epic images. When done the right way, lens flare can enhance the photograph’s visual appeal and help shift the focus to the subject.
