Bride Bouquet Throw: Single Ladies

This nighttime reception at a local museum included the bouquet toss as one of the couple's observed traditions.

I used off-camera flash and careful composition and photographed the bouquet mid flight. When photographing a bouquet toss, the key is to anticipate the exact moment when the bride will throw the bouquet and wait just a split-second more before pressing the camera shutter.

One thing that I enjoy about bouquet toss photographs is the expression and behavior of the women capturing the bouquet. As you can see, one of the bridesmaids appears disinterested in the process while others appear hopeful. I'm also drawn to the bride's expression which is one of complete joy and happiness.
