I asked mom to go to her daughter and if there was any advice she wanted to give her on her wedding day now was the time. I captured what was happening here in front of me, but her 3 three sisters were also watching just behind me and when I turned around they were all crying. I photographed that too, but this moment when mom reached over to wipe a tear off her daughters smiling face was the moment I chose to share.
I positioned the bride near window light for her getting ready images and just let the events take place.
I could tell this bride had a very close relationship with her mom and sisters so I anticipated a very emotional moment as she got ready. I made sure all her sisters were with her when she put her dress on and then gave her a moment alone with her mom which is when the emotions flooded the room.
