As a Documentary Wedding photographer, these are the moments I live for. I'm always searching for scenes that arise like this one did. I had left this bathroom while the bride was getting ready to wander around and see what else was taking place throughout the venue. This is something I do quite often. Always looking for interesting details happening throughout the day.
When I returned to see how things were coming, I stepped in and saw this. It was perfect. The bride is still getting ready and her children have accomplished what all kids are good at, destruction. I had my camera ready to go and photographed a couple different frames of this scene. I settled on this one.
Weddings are so much more than just two main people, the bride and the groom. It's a story. A beginning middle and end. Leaving out details or not photographing instances like these make that story fall apart.
