Earlier this week I got together with some of my favorite creatives for a Styled Shoot at Baltimore venue The Assembly Room, and all I can say is...wow. For a dark and moody photographer who lives for those perfectly lit shadows and industrial settings, I was giddy with excitement!
When I saw the graffiti wall on the first floor of the building, I knew it would serve as an amazing backdrop. Fun fact: the lights were turned off and nobody could find the switch to turn them back on. It was then I realized, wait a minute, this is the perfect scenario for using off camera flash to create a really cool and edgy portrait! So we left the overhead lights off and I used a flash to create some bride and groom portraits that filled my moody photographer heart!
The rest of the day did not disappoint with the beautifully lit and decorated bridal and groom suites and abundant natural light flowing in on the second floor. Red brick is visually one of my favorite things and paired with some natural window light?? Too good.
We ended the shoot outside so we could get a shot of the couple in front of the symbolic “316” that’s painted in black on the outside of the building, and it turned out to be one of my favorite shots of the day!
