Wedding portraits with emotion
Be on the ready to shoot fun portraits that are backlit to perfection
Most of wedding photographer Dominic Lemoine’s favourite shots are captured like this one – on the fly, without much planning. T his shot of the bride’s daughter was taken during the wedding prep. “She was reluctant to let someone else than her mum to do her hair,” says Dominic. “When the hairdresser put the hairspray on, she immediately pulled that face and I was ready to capture it.
“I’d just captured a photo of the bride, so my flash was already positioned behind the subject. What made the photo work is the mirror the girl was holding: it reflected some of the light onto her face, giving me enough light for the final edit.”
