  1. Man, composition in “less than ideal” surroundings is something I struggle with and it’s very refreshing and helpful to read posts like yours on the topic! I feel like anyone* (not true, I know, but for the sake of exaggeration to make a point) can take beautiful pictures of a beautiful couple in a beautiful locale, but I find that real life and real weddings don’t always take place in the most incredible old hotel in town, don’t always offer perfect, soft, ambient light, etc. etc.
