Setting Up a Natural Group Bridal Shot at Wedding
Matt Kay of The Woods Photography in South Africa anticipated a meaningful group photo moment for the bride, who was about to greet her little bridesmaids in her wedding dress. “They just piled in” when they saw her, says Kay, who was ready and waiting with his camera. He had also switched off all the lights in the room to help “identify patches of good natural light around the space.”

Curious Flower Girl Grabs Wedding Photographer’s Attention
UK wedding photographer Martin Dabek spotted a little flower girl that simply could not sit still, popping into the aisle a few times to get a better view of the couple (who can blame her?). “I thought that it would be a good idea to move from the front of the church to the back to capture her stepping again as the light was brilliant,” he says. “When the wedding couple was leaving the altar as a married couple, the flower girl stepped out again, but this time her mum was holding her hand and basically stopping her from ‘stealing the show.’ I think she did it anyway.”
