A Pretty shot of Katie on the bed at the Pullman Hotel Miami, before she puts on the dress. It’s a little sexy, and a very unique way to show her, the flowers, the dress and her “getting ready” outfit. In an album, this type of shot does very, very well and that’s what I wanted to illustrate here. A part of my thought process when I am out in the field goes beyond “what’s in front of me”. Practical application comes into play as well, and I often think.. HOW is this shot going to matter, or be used. I am always looking for more creative ways to photograph wedding detail shots, and different unique ways to pull them all together. This shot is a nice idea, and an example of a way to do this that is very meaningful to the bride, and less about some "static" detail shot alone sitting on a table or chair (which is what most wedding photographers do, because it's easy for them to do). This does not make it right, best, or what "should be". I think BECAUSE all photographers shoot detail items this way, it becomes the expectation of the clients, and then it becomes this circle that goes round, and round. I do the best I can to try and break that cycle with my style, and more impactful shots that matter more.
