Bravery. It's a big deal for me. When a bride steps just over her line of comfort, amazing things can happen.
At Market Hall, my bride did a beautiful brave thing for her bridal. She did a nude. Even though it was brightly lit and midday with the hall flooded with light, I stopped my lens down so the room was very dark. I also set up a flash behind the bride to both separate her from the background and dramatically light her. Many people who look at this image think she is a dancer but she isn't. This is all about listening and working with me to get to the pose and being willing to push the boundaries. And she is absolutely stunning.Bridal Session (71), Bride (98), Market Hall, North Carolina (38), Nude (2), Portrait (76), Raleigh (28), Veil (13). 1/125; f/2.8; ISO 800; 24.0 mm.
