Roxanne Duke Photography shares Lucy and Eric’s visually stunning, Berkeley Fieldhouse wedding filled with beautiful life & great love.
What three words describe the wedding style and atmosphere of Lucy and Eric’s wedding?
Modern, Elegant, Romantic
There is a relaxed unhurried quality to your day of portraits that communicate the personality of your couple and their guests. What do you attribute to this success?
The relaxed, unhurried quality of the portraits is absolutely intentional & the ultimate goal of my work. Some things I do to achieve this include: working with a second shooter/assistant, fostering a kind & comfortable environment for the Bride, Groom, & their guests, & doing lots of prep. work/checking in with the couples about their wishes & timeline beforehand.
What were some of your first thoughts and impressions of Lucy and Eric’s wedding album when you first started the editing process and what were some of your favourite parts?
My first impression of the day, when looking back on it while editing, was WOW. The day was visually stunning, filled with beautiful life & great love. My favourite parts were Lucy getting ready, the ceremony, & dancing! The dance floor at Lucy & Eric’s wedding was amazing. The room was just filled with so much love!
What are some of the key elements that contribute to the success of a wedding day portrait?
The key elements that contribute to the success of a wedding day portrait include trust, timing, & good lighting. Ultimately, TRUST is the most important piece, when working with a photography, especially on your wedding day. Trust that they understand your vision, trust that they know what they are doing, trust their vision!
How did starting your business while you were doing your formal photography studies bring dynamic strengths to each endeavour?
Starting my business while studying photography full time was not easy. As work started to pick up for me in third year, I was able to support myself full time, up to graduation. It has given me a sense of strength, resiliency, & determination. Of course my formal education provided me with lots of technical skills, but I have learned the most through my own work/business.
