Virgin Gorda Wedding PhotographyI absolutely love the moments before a wedding ceremony when emotions are running high. It’s especially gorgeous to witness this anticipation when the bride and groom are truly reveling in their day and the family and friends that have come to surround them and witness their wedding ceremony. At this especially gorgeous wedding at the Bitter End Yacht Club in Virgin Gorda the bride and her bridesmaids took a wonderful beachside walk to get to the ceremony location. At the bottom of the steps leading down from her villa I stopped the bride and bridesmaids for a quick group shot. While I gravitate towards a documentary, photojournalistic coverage of the wedding day I understand the importance of group shots and family formals so I always made sure those portraits are a part of my wedding day coverage. I chose to photograph this picture with a wide angle lens to really emphasize the leading lines of the stair railing down towards the bridal party.
