The Classic Bride and Her Gent

Wednesday, October 29, 2008

These last few weeks I have been editing images like there is no tomorrow but tonight I had to pause when I came across this lovely image. The image is one of my brides (Kristina) after her ceremony. Since the engagement session went so well the formal shoot was a piece of cake. Both Billy (groom) and Kristina knew that I wanted to create some really special images even though we were rushed to get back to the festivities and the guests. We were walking back to the reception and I was back peddling to keep up with the couple and to shoot at the same time. Just before crossing the median I captured the memorable shot above of Kristina smiling at her new husband as he unraveled her veil which had become tangled. What a gentleman! I love how the late evening light catches the folds and creases of the veil to illuminate its shape and form. A few more teaser detail images are below.

Dude...I'm just glad I was able to be there to witness the magic firsthand! The shot of the ring is KRAZY!! I love it!

Ditto Erika Kimberly!!!

Your explanation of why she's smiling makes the picture even more special. Without it, you just think she's simply smiling.

Ross, you're the BOSS of capturing the perfect moments. Significant pieces of time that an otherwise untrained, unskilled eye might miss.

Ross you are amazing and what you're able to capture. You are definitely a testimony of God's work. Continue blessing people through photography.

P.S. the shoes are always my favorite, BUT I love flower leaning on the lamp (tres chic--very sexy)!
