The story behind the image
Some of my clients opt for full-day coverage of their wedding, usually a period between 8 and 14 hours. It’s exhaustive for sure, but it results in terrific images like this one.
During the dress-up session with the bride, her mother and her bridesmaid were pulling on the laces of her dress. I like the fact that you can see three pairs of arms, two of them working on the laces behind her. It highlights the point that the bride get all attention by everyone on her wedding day – a nice thought.
Originally, I delivered this shot as larger landscape shot (with mother and bridesmaid visible), but while writing this blog post I realized that a portrait crop would work best, even if the image gets smaller in terms of pixels.
