Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken in Texarkana at First Beech Street Baptist Church where my son and now daughter-in-law were married. This bride was not a fan of grass (or of messing up this dress) so we had to find some other shots that would work for her.
Time
This is about 1:00 or 2:00 in the afternoon.
Lighting
The lighting was NOT the best. Because of the time of day the light was right in the bride-to-be's eyes so we had to get her behind one of the columns so she could even stand to have the picture made.
Equipment
Nikon D800 (although this may have been the camera prior to this D3100), no flash, no tripod.
Inspiration
The columns were so dramatic that we just couldn't pass up the great look of this photo.
Editing
There was a "carnival" right behind the bride-to-be so we had to edit that out, because that was not very cute. The shadows of the columns provided enough shade that I didn't have to adjust the exposure much. Other than that it was a great shot straight out of the camera.
In my camera bag
I don't have a lot of extra equipment, but I carry an extra battery, a remote, and a couple of speed lights with me all the time. I have a fixed length lens and a zoom lens that I normally carry on location.
Feedback
My advice? I always try to use my imagination, just like for this photo with a whole carnival scene behind her you might not think to take the shot, but always think about the post-process while shooting so you can make a stand-out photo when you get back to your computer.
