An image that captured brides & grooms


The strength of just this one image from the 2016 wedding season has had many couples book me for their wedding.

I love this photo of a bride reflected in her mothers eye but it's surprising all the same to hear all the same from my Brides & Grooms and what made them decided to book me to capture their special day.

I have to be honest and say that this image took a few attempts to capture it at different weddings in 2016 until I got the perfect image. Lighting the Bride with a off camera flash and radio system set up wasn't so difficult but using a 100mm Macro lens with it's very shallow depth of field and whilst trying to focus manually on a reflective surface like the eye in low-light conditions has it's challenges. Movement from both subjects and myself meant that point of focus was continuously changing. 

I remember showing the Bride and her mother this shot straight away in camera and their reactions are one of amazement. Needless to say during that wedding reception I think most of their wedding guests approached me to see 'the photo' that everyone was talking about.
