Natural Wedding Photography: Taking Time for the Bride

Natural Wedding Photography

Natural wedding photography needs to look, well how can I put it, natural! The subject needs to look relaxed and yes you guessed it, natural! The image may be posed, posture may be directed. It may be lit, either naturally or be using additional lighting but overall it needs to depict a feeling of calm.

Our beautiful bride Judith was photographed on her wedding morning just before she left to marry her groom  Nick. She got ready at the Kings Arms Hotel in Christchurch Dorset. It was a late April day, a dull and overcast morning but this meant the light was gentle. The sun broke through later so we had everything, all the climate boxes ticked!

She stood in the window and turned away from the camera and there we have it. One beautiful bride, captured on the cusp of embarking upon one of the most important and momentous events of her life and she is just looking so serene. Her insides may have been churning, her nerves may have been rattling, she may have been excited beyond belief but she just looks calm and elegant, faultlessly perfect. All the work and planning behind her, all the excitement and joy ahead of her.

I want her to look at this photo and engage with her memories, to think about how she felt at this moment. Also, for her new husband to see how she looked and felt in those moments before she left for the alter.

Congratulations to both Judith and Nick and there are plenty more images to follow, we just couldn’t quite hold back on this beauty. So enjoy the sneak peak!
