One way to make photography more fun is to experience it with nine of your closest friends, as the women of this bridal party are doing on the stunning grounds of the Ritz Carlton Laguna Niguel. These laughing ladies are flanked with little pops of greenery in all four corners, which frames the scene nicely. When they were asked to ham it up a little, it was fun to notice each of their distinct personalities coming through. We always aim to make formal portraits feel little a little less formal, by encouraging our subjects to let loose and enjoy the time together before they are joined by the rest of the guests.
Location: Ritz Carlton Resort, Dana Point, CA.
