Kyle Bettenhausen and Angela Roth's wedding reception was held at Park Centers near Van Dorn street and Highway 77 in Lincoln, Nebraska which is incredibly close to Wilderness Park and the Bison Trail. During a short break at their reception we snuck off to the park for a few portraits right before sunset.
If it works with the schedule and location, I always recommend sneaking off from the reception at some point for a quick photo shoot. By that point in the day, the bride and groom are so much more relaxed and it really shows in the photos. It's also a great idea because in the case of hot summer wedding days the temperature has dropped by that point and the sun is much less harsh making for prettier light.
This particular location in the park was just steps away from the parking lot. I loved the look of the road and the tree line with light shining through. Wilderness Park is one of the most gorgeous locations in Lincoln and always a favorite spot to shoot. There are a few other reception sites in the area (The Gala and Pla Mor Ballroom) which makes for a very convenient location when working at these venues.
Kyle and Angela had one of the most gorgeous spring days for their April wedding and working with them was an honor.
Location: Bison Trail, Lincoln, Nebraska.
