[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ambient Light. Processing through a special recipe in Lightroom. I processed all the photos with a muted color, leaning more toward cooler tones, pinks, blues and purples.
This is the Bride before they started on her hair. She made a great model and was gracious, allowing me to be a part of the process of her getting ready for her most special day.

Hi Linda,
What a delicate moment you captured here! The light is perfect, enhancing the woman's face and hair.

I like the intimacy of this portrait, Linda. A delicate atmosphere that you were able to create thanks to the pose of your model, your POV and the subtle colors (with a "black and white feel").
TFS & kind regards,

Hi Linda, the expression on the brides face is that of confidence and awareness of her beautiful self, you captured it so well. The sidelight works so good showing the face through the hair. The color tones are natural and real. TFS

Hello Linda,

Wet hair of the bride is eye catching. Beautifully composed protrait in excellent luminosity. Mild mood drawn with light is awesome. Thanks for sharing an awesome idea my friend.

Kind Regards,

Love it
So introspective, so deep far and so close in the image.
Vert good pose. You and her have been a good team

Hi Linda..nice shot...excellent light and tones. Well done.


Hi Linda,
I love the natural side lighting and the natural look of the bride. The contrast with the dark BG is awesome. This is really a high class photo.

P.S. there are some sharpning effects visible.
