Is it important to be unobtrusive when photographing bridal preparations? If so, how do you manage to blend into the background? Do you use flash when photographing the bridal preparations? If so, do you use on-camera flash or off-camera flash? And for what stages of the bridal preparations do you use flash (e.g. bridal portraits, the rings, at every stage of bridal preparations)? If there is plenty of light, I don't use flash; but if the room where the bride is getting ready is quite dark, I use off-camera flash. If I don't use flash under these circumstances, I have a low shutter speed (occasionally producing motion blur) and high iso (producing noise). Recently, I have been using primes with my Canon 5div and I like the natural light appearance of this combination. However, these pictures lack the sharpness and detail of the photos where I have used flash.
