To continue my series on reflection images, I thought I would include this shot as I feel it can be important to the preparation images. Most often when covering the bride getting ready, it is tight quarters with people and stuff everywhere. It can sometimes be difficult to capture candid images of anyone when there is no where to hide…..always in their face. This is another situation where a mirror can really help. I was shooting some detail shots of the dress, shoes, etc. I hung the dress right next to the mirror on the closet door and I opened the door so my angle of view was of the bride having a moment to herself before she put her dress on. Simple and Effective. Without the dress in the composition, you wouldn't even know she was a bride. She could be tying her shoes getting ready for a run.

Here is yet another piece of my reflections series

As much as I love and look for reflections when I am shooting, I will emphasize that they should be used smart and sparingly. I never did like the mirror prop for the class pictures in high school. I thought it was cheesy.What a coincidence that this newlywed and mother-to-be in this photo happened to post a reflective photo of herself recently of her baby bump. Nice work Kelly and I hope you're feeling well.
