I grabbed these impromptu bridal portraits of Michelle while she was sequestered in the church vestibule within minutes before she was to walk up the aisle…
Not all portraits have to be looking in camera…
Throughout the wedding day I am always on the lookout for special moments, beautiful light and interesting backgrounds, and this church vestibule at Our Lady Of Mercy in Hicksville, did not disappoint!
I knew I had to showcase it.
Anticipation and emotions are heightened and it is one of my favorite parts of the wedding day.
Fixing Michelle’s exquisite veil.
Making the most of this gorgeous vestibule – I love the contrast of the red tones and the artistic door against Michelle’s wedding dress.
I especially love her beautiful profile and her pensive expression …
Michelle’s supportive flower girl giving her the peace sign.
Perfect example as to why I love when children are included in the wedding day.
And when the music starts, whether it is “The Bridal March” or Pachelbel’s Canon, sometimes I even get a little choked up.
