Traditionally, men aren't allowed, but I was the prime photographer, so I insisted on my right to take pictures of the bride preparing for the wedding.

The scary part was putting on the wedding dress. What if all that food and drink at the rehearsal dinner had caused it to shrink???

But with help from her mom and her bridesmaids, everything was sorted out in quick fashion.

Great stuff Frank! Ya really feel awkward in there with the chicks, doncha? You've caught some very classic moments, and excellent facial expressions, but that eyelash clamp has always made me think 'Clockwork Orange'.

I just love it when a lady looks at me like that.

A classic candid, Frank, gave me quite a frisson.

Nicely chronicled, frank

That look of the bridesmaid is such a classic, and the flying veil shot are my faves. I'll look for your post of the rest.
