The Groom Has To Get Ready Too - Boulston Manor

Documentary Wedding Photography at Boulston Manor

While I always photograph the bride getting ready on the morning of the wedding, I also try, if its logistically possible, to get some pictures of the groom and his "boys" getting ready too. Its easy to forget that there's a whole other set of people nervously preparing for the big day.

I like to use mirrors in photographs, and this is a simple enough picture to take. But although I'd seen the possibility of a good picture, I still had to wait for it to happen. I noticed this mirror very early on, but it was later, once all the boys were together getting their outfits sorted out, that the picture finally presented itself. I like that there's nobody in the foreground and all the people are contained within the mirror, making it almost look like a window.
