Preparation photos of the bride are some of the most delicate moments of a wedding day. I just love photographing the bride putting on a special piece of jewellery from her grandmother, shedding some tears with her mother or opening a gift up from her groom. These are the moments that bring goosebumps to the surface of my skin.
In this particular photo, Taya is having her maid of honour help her put her shoes on just moments before doing a first look with her soon to be husband. She started to become nervous and get butterflies during this time. She never thought she would feel this way but suddenly was bombarded with all of these feelings that she couldn't control.
I love the getting ready space at this home in Vancouver. It is spacious, simple, and beautifully decorated. The tones of the room are subtle and the window is huge, which provided us with the natural light we needed to get a photograph like this one.
