Why I Like This Photograph No.12

Photographs you will treasure, from a day
like no other
Hi everybody and welcome back to the 'Why I Like This Photograph' blog series, which is a quick way of looking at images captured at some point during a wedding. This image was taken a couple of days ago during Emma & Matt's wedding day here in Warwickshire. A really special part of the day is Bridal preparations, and Emma invited me along to record some moments before the main event itself at church. Emma and her Bridesmaids were getting ready at the Woodside Hotel in Kenilworth.
It was about an hour before the service, and Emma was having the finishing touches to her make up. So why do I like this image? It tells a story, and will serve as a reminder in years to come. I love that there are three people here - Emma, her make up artist and her maid of honour. And of course the star of the image, the hand held fan. I guess another reason why I love this image is that everyone and everything is looking after the Bride on her day. And why not. This is all shot in the style that I love, often described as reportage, whilst being discreet and unobtrusive. If you are looking for a photographer who provides natural-looking images, then please contact me to see if your date is still available. Have a great day everyone, and come back soon for another post. Martin.
