When I photographed the bride's preparation at King Edward Hotel I make sure I had a few new concepts ready. I know many photographers in the GTA are using the same shot list because according to them the approval formula should you have the change on the special day. In my opinion, I think it's unfair for the bride and groom to recycle the same poses and images for all the weddings one photographs.
It is the duty of the professional photographer to capture the special day through his own lens and not only copy award winning images. Yes I know, there is always a photo of the chandeliers in the Crystal Ballroom, were night shots next to the queen's painting. I was often asked to take photos that my couples found online and I'm always happy to oblige. However want to give them my own interpretation of the scene or the situation so that the couple ends up with the memorable image that captures the love of the wedding day.
The Story of this Photograph
In capturing this image I was inspired by the movie Despicable Me and the photograph shows the three minions looking closely at the wedding bands. I find this photograph very compelling especially knowing the adventurous and happy mood of the newlyweds couple.
