I had the pleasure of helping shoot Julia and David on their wedding day. We did some shots before the ceremony - this is one of them. It really helps when the bride is gorgeous. :-)

Post challenge:
Woot! 13th! Really is my favorite placing. No one from 1-12 is allowed to get a DQ now, 'k??

P.S. I don't know if she likes it or not - she hasn't seen it. But as a non-portrait type of photographer, I'm really pleased with it.

No additional lighting or reflectors.

I still love the grasses... fading to nothing and those dark ones. Total love.

Top 20 Deb, congrats! Maybe wedding photography should be your gig. You certainly have an affection(?) for it. Not methodical as a lot seem to be.

I knew this would do well. I had no idea it was yours since you don't normally do portraits. Congrats on your high finish. It's a beautiful shot. Well balanced and the border is just right.

As you SHOULD be pleased with it. She will love it! And I'd say wedding photography -- if you like it -- is very much a go for you in the future! Congratulations on your favorite 13th placing :) And I'm allll for the "no dq's please" :)

Wow lovely. I see a wedding photographer in the making. ;) The bride is gorgeous, but it also helps when the photographer has such a soft touch!!! I love the soft foggy background and the beautiful definition in her arms. She is beautiful.

I like this idea. I can't really say anything is wrong with it. Personally, I would have cropped it to about a 2x6 ratio with the bride filling the frame, that's just me. Nice capture.

You really did a great job with your depth of field here, and getting that light on what seems like a very flat day!
