When we walked into the getting room and greeted the bride and her bridesmaids, we were in awe at how beautiful the whole room was. Built out of wood and painted a delicate white, it was going to be an absolute dream to photograph. Why? The light pouring in from the windows meant that the room because a giant soft-box of sorts, with soft light hitting everything. When it comes to finding spots for the dress, we often try and keep it somewhere contextual to the wedding. We’re not fans of taking it to a completely different location just for a picture, but that’s just us.
We found this room that was being used for storage at the time and asked the bride if we could move things around to set up a few detail shots. She agreed and we got to work. While moving things, we noticed all these lines created by the planks of wood, and our eye for composition just blew up. We knew exactly where we wanted to shoot the dress and that was that.
