In any wedding photography, the getting ready part is the most casual yet provides the most revealing and certainly most refreshing images. It is the start of the long day ahead for everyone. Although some are still not fully awaken, at least nobody is tired. Seeing the photographer for the first time is sometimes daunting for everyone, more so for the bride. As the bride knows, it is the start of the long road where she needs to look beautiful in front of the camera. For the photographer, it is an opportunity to make a first impression. It is crucial because the rapport that the photographer builds with everyone at the start of the wedding day will determine the cooperation and the quality of the photos for the rest of the day.
This is the setting to take lots of candid shots. Nobody has gotten used to posing so a good photographer can capture some truly precious family moments. There are opportunities to getting to know each other and make everyone feel comfortable. Once everyone gets into the mode of getting ready, they are not paying too much attention to the photographer and that's exactly when true magic happens. Wedding photography is a mixture of posed and candid shots. Getting ready provides plenty of stunning candid images that a bride will cherish a lifetime.
