Best of 2012: Will Kerner Photography
A small, but very special selection of images from the year past from Will Kerner Photography today… and a few words from Will..
In my wedding work I strive to find a balance of color, light and composition. The most powerful, lasting images are those which capture emotion and tell the story with impeccable technique.
I love the opportunity to photograph the couple interacting with each other in a beautiful natural setting. This image has the qualities of joy, spontaneity, and naturalness that I strive for.
I’m always looking to capture the spark between the couple. It helps to let them move freely, talk or whisper, and just engage with each other naturally.
As part of the documentary process I’m always looking for a images that are more creative. Here we sense Liz’s anticipation just prior to the ceremony, and the unusual composition holds some mystery, as well.
My wedding work is influenced by photographers in the art world, in this case Martin Parr. He is known for his candid portrayals of British middle class life. This image is an homage to his colorful, playful style.
Capturing a tender emotional moment with the couple in focus and the rest soft results in a special frame.
Family and friends should figure prominently in the day’s shoot. Here a fire at dusk, where no one is aware of the camera, creates a truly candid moment.
