Wedding photography is all about making a connection with a bride and groom and as a photographer who occasionally serves as a second shooter for some couples, it's easy to feel like that connection isn't always possible.
And that's why whenever I'm a second shooter meeting a bride and groom for the first time on their big day, I try to be as friendly and personable as possible to establish that connection as quick as I can.
For Jennifer and Bruce's August wedding at the Inn at Mystic in Mystic, Connecticut, it took less than three minutes to feel like I'd known this bride and groom for years.
Standing on a front porch of a beautiful and elegant mansion on the property of the Inn, Bruce nervously awaited Jenn's arrival for their first look as I pulled up to start my day photographing his wedding.
Within moments of assuring him nerves were normal, I could see his comfortableness with me appear almost instantly and that quick connection paved the way for a beautiful day of photographs in one of my favorite towns in New England.
As always, thanks for the follow and let me know what you think!
