A Bridesmaids Tear
I wouldn’t be surprised if many of my images that get featured in the “why I love this wedding photo” series don’t have great light. My whole approach to photographing weddings is to make sure the light is just right. This image is from Laura and Charles’ wedding. I photographed this wedding in The Cotswolds at the start of 2022 in February. It was actually my first wedding of the year. I always get really excited about the first wedding of the year.
The reason I love this photo so much is that its not focusing at all on the bride or groom. It’s a simple photo that really shows the emotion of how someone is feeling and although you can’t see Laura and Charles. You know that there is something wonderful happening. I’ve chosen this to be a black and white photograph and I’ll tell you why. I want the soul focus of this shot to be about the emotion and meaning. Therefore the colours become less important.
This isn’t to say that colour isn’t important to me. The bridesmaids dresses are a beautiful forrest shade of green, The mother of the bride is in a really colourful dress. Not mentioning the importance of colour in the skin tones that look great. Like I say its all about the moment this photo.
