Prague Wedding Portraits


Portraits by Prague photographer Craig Robinson.

Way-Lin and Nicolle came from Singapore to Prague to have their wedding portraits taken. They brought a variety of beautiful outfits (including wedding clothes and glamorous formal wear) with them to take out on the town. We did photos around the Charles Bridge, at Prague Castle and Gardens, in the Old Town Square and its surrounding areas.

The portraits shown here were taken in Mala Strana (Lesser Town), the Prague Castle side of the river.

I really love how Nicolle's red dress appeared in contrast to the blue Summer skies of Prague. The strong contrast between red and blue in photos gives stunning results. The fine sheen of the material of her dress also makes for great shots. I also have a penchant for primary colors used sparingly.

I like my backgrounds to be simple without too much busy detail. I like the subjects to appear in bright, solid colors to make them 'pop out' of the background. This is accomplished by carefully balancing the background exposure (sky and Charles Bridge) with the subject's fill flash setting.

We had a lot of fun making these portraits that day and they were very happy with the end results, as was I.
