Photographs from a Hailey Idaho wedding at a private residence.

This past Spring I read a book about Henri Cartier Bresson and remember one line in particular, “Don’t use a flash out of respect for the natural lighting, even when there isn’t any.” The quote both identified him, his standards, and perhaps set a challenge to the rest of the photographic community. It’s true, natural light is varied beyond infinity and incomparable, so why ruin an image with artificial substitutes?

Friday of last week, Sara and Peter were married on her dad’s property near Hailey, Idaho. Sara was both bride and wedding planner, two positions she filled with grace. Latin music, succulents on the tables, a margarita bar, and Mole for dinner were details she wrapped into her theme. While I still used the flash off and on throughout the night, the ambient light she established was a fun challenge to photograph under.
