- Wedding: September 2013
Okay I need some help because I am totally stressing over this detail that I totally didn’t think of….
We are getting married at an old, restored movie theater. I love everything about it, except one thing I just realized …. full lighting is VERY low. Like, picture a movie theater when you first walk in (before the previews start).
The theater director said that it’s possible that they’ll get a little more uplighting by the time our wedding rolls around in 8 months, but since they’re a non-profit organization, they can’t be sure.
He gave me the name of a company that provides lighting, but the guy I’ve talked does not seem to “get” that we need simple, practical lighting. He keeps sending me pictures of elaborate, colored displays that cost $3K + …. to which I laughed out loud. My entire wedding is only costing me about $5 grand so …. yeah…. Not spending $4K on lights that will be used for less than an hour.
My main concerns are:
1) quality of photography
2) people being able to see where they’re going and being able to see US (bridal party)
I sent my photographer the pics below to get her opinion on whether we need to add lighitng or not but she says it’s hard to tell unless she’s there to take some sample shots (which we just might have to do).
Here are some pictures. What do you guys think???
