I just had to share this photo, Brittney will probably kill me. But it's the reminder to "have fun". Pictures are not video, but they don't have to be stiff and planned and predictable. Mix it up. Let the real you shine through.
For just one moment in time, every bride is a princess.
Make sure you "use" the light to your advantage. The veil looks brillant in this shot because it's "lit" from behind. The veil frames the bride and draws your attention to her. Which is as it should be.
