Towards the end of the cocktail party, I instructed the couple walk up and down a path cut within a grassy area. This was one of two sessions we did that day (the bride had two dresses). We spent about 30 minutes on this session.
Despite the brightness of the location I wanted to create a moody, atmospheric shot. With just enough detail in the dress and the key light lifting them from the shadows, shows the essential without it being obvious. The off center crop and upwards pull gives the image a nice movement.
