Why I love this image.
As a Documentary Wedding Photographer, the First Dance is something I love to capture candidly and there are many reasons I love this image. I love the joy on the grooms face, I love the movement in the brides dress and the detail in her hair, I love the happy faces in the background and I love those beams and fairy lights. In fact this room (The Georgian Riding School at Firle Place) was a dream to shoot in.
A documentary approach to your wedding day means that none of this is set up. The first dance happened without orchestration from anyone but the bride and groom. When photographing the first dance, I love to capture it from many angles and I always move around the bride and groom I love working with on and off camera flash too and I love getting creative with my shot..
