Old Hickory Golf Club Wedding

Old Hickory Golf Course is located in St. Peters Missouri, just beyond St. Charles and is considered one of the best golf courses for weddings in the St. Louis area. With gorgeous golf course views in all directions, there are great backgrounds to work with from just about any angle. We asked the couple to slip away from the reception for about three to five minutes for a few photographs – as we noticed through the windows the great sunset developing over the almost still water that ran parallel to the banquet center. This photo was taken slightly after sunset using one off-camera speed-lite for back-lighting so the couple would not blend into the dark background. We underexposed slightly to allow for richer colors. Their first look and all their other wedding day portraits were captured slightly after noon that day, so this was a great opportunity to have some lighting, setting, and mood balance in their wedding portraits. Their day was fairly busy, and as it is for most couples – a complete blur. So, this was one of the very few moments during their wedding day that it was just them together (with me of course, doing my thing from a distance) enjoying the relaxing breeze blowing softly from across the lake. I simply asked them to take a few minutes to just be together and talk for bit. Taking photographs wasn’t the groom’s favorite thing to do, but after giving him a quick peek at the back of the camera, he agreed it was well worth it! 1/160; f/9.0; ISO 400; 70.0 mm.
