I schedule 20 minutes during wedding days to photograph the whole bridal party.
I photograph all of them as a group and then I split them up and photograph the groomsmen and then the bridesmaids. If time allows I'll do individuals as well.
Here are some examples of bridesmaids photos.
I photographed the bridesmaids here at the tunnel on the property of the Club at Bond Head. I asked all the girls to turn in different directions and then hold hands. I then took a camera aware portrait and a portrait of them looking at each other.
I photographed the bridesmaids here with the antique cars present at the ceremony at Pheasant Run Golf and spread them out evenly across the front for a camera aware portrait. I started this way because I knew I wanted to insert the boys next and this was a great transition for that group photo.
A hot, bright sunny day with bridesmaids portrait taken on a cute property in Muskoka with 3 different buildings on site. I photographed the girls here at high noon with very contrasty light by putting then in the shade on the porch.
Every grouping I photograph, I capture a camera aware portrait and a looking at each other portrait to see what kind of reactions I can get and then if space allows a walking photograph. This indoor space at The Gladstone Hotel was one of our options as we were stuck indoors during this winter wedding so I got creative with a photograph framed on the wall as a reflection.
