Photographer's Note

This was one of those grab type of photos, totally unexpected, totally caught me off guard.

We were walking back to our hotel after an early morning photo shoot, so we wanted to rest for a while.

One the way back we ran into this bride being photographed - which we soon found out to be a common event on Santorini! There are SO many brides walking around in their wedding dresses.

She didn't seem to mind me getting up close as well, perhaps the photographer didn't like it I don't know...but I don't care :)

The bride even looked straight at me from time to time, I think she was soaking in all the attention she could get!

I didn't really have the luxury of composing my shot, I just had to go with what was presented to me - so I used the bg building and the tiles on the ground to compliment the scene. And obviously I didn't have an external Flash to illuminate her face, as I said this was a grab type of shot.

Its pretty funny when you get up super early for morning blue hour, and you see Brides in wedding gowns with their newlywed husband as the photographer walking around the steep cliff's of Oia. There was one early morning in particular when I found myself competing with a bride and groom for a 'private' entrance only spot - I let them have it :)

I have a few more of these, maybe i'll post them as time goes by. Hope you like it.
