Shooting weddings in Southern Florida is always fun because each new wedding is filled with opportunity to capture images of something unique, or interesting, or romantic or just plain cute. This photo of a little flower girl was taken during a wonderful wedding at the Marriott Harbour Beach in the late afternoon. I have shot many weddings at this South Florida wedding venue and they are all beautiful and well organized events.
This South Florida photo was taken during the bride and her bridal parties photo session in the late afternoon. Everything happened perfectly on this day which made taking this photo as simple as snapping the shutter. One of my favorite wedding venues in South Florida is the Marriott for several reasons. The hotel sits right along the Beach and it's a sizable hotel with a huge patio which is perfect for getting photos of the bridal party or other people photos against a beach and ocean background. In the afternoon the hotel casts a huge shadow on the deck below which makes for soft easy lighting.
While we were shooting the bride and her girls, this little flower girl took a moment so sell the flowers. She was not aware I took this photo until after I shot this. Then the other bridesmaids commented, "How Sweet" and this shot was made.
When shooting weddings either in South Florida or any other place for that matter, your wedding photographer needs to always be aware of the surroundings, and ready for what may happen that will make a great photo. By being aware of everything that's going on and aways having the camera set to shoot your photographer can be ready to grab a candid photo in an instant. It's in those moments when people are just hanging out or standing around that some of the most interesting and unique photos are made.
In addition I almost always have 2 cameras close by. Usually one camera has as telephoto lens and the other a wide angle lens. This way I could capture a shot from a far in an instant, or if I'm really close, like in this case, I could switch to the camera with the wide lens.
