When the stars align

bride+and+mother+getting+ready.jpg

Here is a favorite image from Danny and Arlene’s recent wedding. I loosely composed a getting ready vignette, but little Alana was all over the place, looking out the window or wandering around. And then just for a moment, she looked up at her auntie Arlene and everything came together for what has become one of my most popular getting ready photos.

I do not ‘pose’ people during the getting ready. Instead I place them in the best possible light and then let them do what comes natural. Often what is natural is also beautiful.
