Bride smiles through veil in black and white

For this portrait of the bride, we pulled her veil in front of her face so that she's looking through it into the lens. Because she's posed in direct sunlight, the hem and folds of the veil are casting shadows on her face and shoulder. The black and white effect removes distracting color and helps bring out the detail of the veil, and gives the photo a vintage look. This bride's wedding took place at Kensington Gardens in Gig Harbor, Washington, and was featured in South Sound Wedding and Event Magazine.
