But why me? – I love this image


This is a photograph from Charlotte and Mark’s Lyndhurst Church wedding in the heart of the New Forest last Summer.

I really enjoy shooting the Bridal prep, and it’s not always the Bride who makes the best subject!

I couldn’t resist shooting this flower-girl’s great expression. You could make up any number of suggestions for what she’s saying. I also love the way that the other flower-girl in the background’s looking on. So many different ways to interpret a single image.

For me, this is what wedding photography’s about. As a documentary wedding photographer I think that events on the day should unfold naturally, with the minimum of direction from the photographer. There’s no way that I could have set up this photograph. The only way to capture it is by observation and anticipation – oh yes, and luck as well! Shot with available light from the window, there’s no way to set up lighting. It a case of reading the room and working out the best angles.

You can see more images from Charlotte and Mark’s New Forest wedding on the Blog.
