I am usually against props. They have a tendency to distract from the subject and to delay the photo shoot because often, props have a mind of their own.
After the bridesmaids got ready, I asked each of them to hold the frame and it took a beautiful photo. When the bride descended from her room, it was her turn to be photographed.
As such, I asked her to quickly hold the frame and to pose for me for a couple of seconds.
I remember vividly the beautiful bride was tens before her wedding ceremony and I didn't want to take too much time photographing her. I would say this image took about 10 seconds to create. Still, alongside the other photographs of the bridesmaids, created a splendid wedding album spread.
The tilted frame gives the image a sense of movement and the diagonals lead the viewer's eye to the bride. Also, I used a photography technique called frame in frame and this time it was a literally a frame.
After we finished taking this beautiful photo, we headed to the place where the bride and groom had their first look and then we all headed to Château Le Parc for their wedding ceremony followed by the cocktail hour and and reception.
