Photographing weddings at King Edward Hotel is always a pleasure and documenting this day was no different. The bride was born and raised in England and this was a British Themed wedding. That was the reason why they picked King Eddie as their wedding venue.
The wedding was held in one of the smaller rooms in the hotel and this interesting image was taken during the first dance.
While the bride and groom were doing their first dance, I noticed that my video light was projecting the couple's shadow onto a painting of Buckingham Palace. As such, instead of focusing on the bride and groom, I made the shadows the subject of this photo.
This photo is different for a few reasons. First, you can not see the bride and groom's faces which gives the image a mysterious note. Also, the bride is wearing a crown, which goes hand in hand with the hotel's luxurious architecture and style. Last, it is very unusual for a photo taken during the first dance to capture the shadow and not the bride and groom.
