Before heading to Château Le Parc for the beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony the bride went to her room to reflect on the big day and to get dressed. The wedding photographers were permitted to take a few pictures of the beautiful bride and this is one of them.
For a few minutes we witnessed and captured a variety of emotions ranging from tears to laughter often within seconds from each other.
In this wedding album spread, we can see the bride looking and touching her gown. She's wearing a white robe with a word bride written on the back.
When the bride touched her dress, I could see she was fighting her tears and she were being overwhelmed by deep emotion.
The wedding day marks a transition from being a daughter to becoming a wife and for many brides, the emotion on the special day is to us to bear.
In this frame, everything is white from the window to the dress and the bride's robe. Only the beautiful bride's long black hair and her figure stand out.
In wedding photography, one often has to face difficult lighting situations and this was one of them. Because of the huge windows and the backlight scene, the camera was fooled so the first best shot looked underexposed. As such, I had to deliberately overexpose the whole frame by two stops in the third so that the bride is properly exposed. That is what makes a difference between a professional wedding photographer in the amateurs. The professional photographer manages to deliver good quality imagery in any conditions.
Another challenge was the lack of time. We were so late that we barely had time to take a few good portraits of the bride before she left her house.
