Tampa Wedding PhotographyIt’s always wonderful to witness the relationships between brides, grooms, and the members of their wedding parties. The interaction was especially excellent between the bride and her bridesmaids at this 2012 wedding at Longwood, Florida’s Longwood Community Building. With seven bridesmaids and two flower girls the bride was fully surrounded by loving women! During the formal session with the families and bridal party I always try to also document the natural interactions between the groups as well as the formal, posed photographs. I photographed this picture with a 70-200mm lens at 200mm to compress my subjects off of the beautiful landscaped background. I also love the lens compression of a lens at 200mm because it is very flattering to the body. The compression, beautiful setting sun, and fantastic camaraderie of the group combined to make one of my favorite bridal party pictures of 2012!
