One of the questions I’m asked a lot is; “Do you take photographs of the details?”
The answer, of course, is yes. I shoot as a documentary photographer, which means I shoot the “whole story” of the wedding day.
Just as important as the first kiss, or uncle Albert tearing up during the speeches are the details of the day.
The details of course include stuff like the wedding cake, the table decorations flowers and….the dress.
Now, whilst you won’t find me taking your wedding dress and hanging on a tree in the garden to get some ghostly image, I will of course, take photographs of it throughout the day.
The one part of the the dress that the bride doesn’t ever get to see is the back. The back of the wedding dress is often as impressive and beautiful as the front so I always endeavour to get shots of the back of the dress so the bride can see just how gorgeous it was.
In this case, Emma and her new husband are just exiting the ceremony room and heading out to the lawns for the drinks reception.
The light at this point was perfect and when Stacey, the groom, stood back to allow Emma through, I took my chance to get the image.
