As a wedding photographer, the getting ready photos are my absolute favorite. It allows me to tell the love story from the very beginning. This is usually a more intimate time that allows me to get to know my couples a little more. The Knotting Hill venue is new to Texas and it is more than Grand! Situated amidst the charming lake town of Little Elm, Texas is Knotting Hill Place. Unlike anything in the DFW area, our estate and staff will deliver a breathtaking experience for your special occasion. Attention has been given to every detail to the 17,000-square foot venue on five acres with you and your dreams in mind. Knotting Hill has a wide range of backdrops, it’s basically a photographer dream. I knew that this wedding would be amazing once I saw the venue. My method of shooting getting ready photos is more documentary, I’ll usually wait for the natural shot vs a posed one. I also prefer natural light, I feel that I get more emotional images when I use natural light. For a bit of an artistic edge, I’ll place a led light somewhere in the room. Prime lenses are my go to , mainly to create a more dramatic look.
If you’re looking to try out a few lenses, I recommend renting first before buying just to see if you like it. My favorite rental company is Aperturent . If you would prefer to buy, take a look at a few of my favorites on Amazon.
