Bridal Portraits in the Park
Damon Tucci Cr.Photog.
A beautiful park is an idyllic setting for an outdoor wedding, but this on location shoot can challenge the unexperienced wedding photographer. In this course, instructor Damon Tucci teaches you how to own the venue and create amazing shots, whatever the condition or distraction.
Watch as Damon teaches you to find the light, even light from a parking garage – and use it for great photographs. Learn how to incorporate reflectors, flash and other fill light to create what isn’t there, and even how to use the sky as a softbox to create the right moment.
Discuss how to work with any condition – wind, rain, sun, foliage, cloud coverage and shadows, just to name a few – and still capture the best shot. Examine how to tune out distractions like noise or crowds, and how to get what you want, expertly and efficiently.
Best of all, Damon reminds you to have fun with your clients as he covers everything from your traditional wedding poses to fun and sassy pictures with attitude!
Watch and learn as Damon makes on location portraits as easy as shooting in your own studio!

Damon Tucci has been a professional photographer in the Orlando area for the past 15 years and has photographed over 3000 weddings. Unlike many wedding photos from the past, his images are emotional, unique, and interesting; just like the couples he photographs.
Damon’s distinct artistry is a combination of talent and experience. He began his career as an underwater cinematographer, and later as a photographer for Disney Photographic Services. It was at Disney that he carefully crafted his unique approach to wedding photography, which is a mix of documentary and stylized fashion.
His award-winning work has been published in several regional and national magazines including Professional Photographer, Studio Photography and Design, The Knot, Perfect Wedding Guide, and Orlando Leisure. Damon is an active member of PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and a dynamic speaker who is frequently asked to lecture to other photography professionals across the country. He takes great pride in teaching others what he has studied for the past two decades and is honored to share his experiences with his students.
Damon’s non-traditional method of blending fashion with documentation is revolutionizing the wedding industry. Today’s modern couples don’t want to spend precious hours on formal poses; they want to enjoy their day with family and friends. Damon’s unique understanding of light, allows him to capture these once-in-a-lifetime moments, but in an unobtrusive manner that does not impact the wedding.
As an artist, Damon revels in breaking the rules. He firmly believes that if you don’t enjoy what you do, then you should do something else. His laid back personality is easy going and fun. Although he is a strict professional, his sense of humor is never far away, and that makes working with him more like spending time with an old friend.
