As a photographer, I love when brides open up and allow me to photograph them the way they are in real life and not just pose for the camera.
In order to capture the best reactions for the camera, a strategy that works is to give the subjects something to do. That keeps the photography subjects distracted and elicits genuine reactions resulting in the best shots.
During this wedding at Atlantis Pavilions, the bride and one of the bridesmaids decided to have a bit of fun so they picked their lipsticks and pretended to use them as cigars. The bride is on the left wearing a white gown while the bridesmaid is wearing a traditional Chinese dress. Both of them are trying to keep a straight face.
