Creating candid wedding photos is what we at Lotus Weddings live for. Tears of joy are moments that you can't pose or plan for. We love capturing beautiful and creative wedding images as much as the next Long Island wedding photographer, however we truly believe that candid moments such as this are the heart and soul of any wedding album.
This is an image of the father of the bride seeing his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress. We just finished the brides detail and getting ready photos. We wanted to set up something special for the her father. We placed her dad at the bottom of the stairs and had the bride walk down them when she was ready. The moment he saw her, he could not contain his emotions any longer. He started to cry, then the mother of the bride started to cry, we almost cried. It was a beautiful candid moment that we were so thankful that they allowed us to capture it for the bride and groom and their families to love forever.
After the first reveal with the father of the bride, we went to the church, where they had a full mass ceremony. We posed the traditional family photos at the church right after the ceremony.
