Are you planning a short-notice, small wedding or elopement?

Many couples don’t want to wait. They are planning to get married in the very near future, eloping, or rushing a small ceremony with their photographer, some close friends, and family but dispensing with or postponing the reception party.

It is now 6:30 in the afternoon and the natural light is gone, as the newlyweds exit the church. With a flash, I create a pleasant image by tilting the camera to document also the external decorations and the large crucifix on the wall of the back of the church.  These are two important details for the bride and groom, and also for the composition.
