"Bridal Shoot" / by Brian D.

It isn't every day that you get to shoot your own beautiful wife for a bridal shoot. However, this past week I thought it would be a great way to celebrate our anniversary. 

This shoot was shot entirely with my Canon 6D and Canon 135mm f2.0 prime lens. We were blessed with a beautiful winter day in Alabama and it made for a wonderful mini series. I usually prefer to shoot in the afternoon to early evening but for this I wanted to attempt to chase the morning light to capture a clean feel with warm overall tones, but still slight blueish tones in my shadows and midtones. 

Prior to coming up with the concept of pulling the old wedding dress out of the closet, I never thought I would have any interest in shooting anything related to the wedding industry. However, I would say that after doing this mini series that changed slightly. I could see my self playing in this area again. But we shall see where my inspiration takes me next. 

The quote from Robert Fulghum below was truly the inspiration of this shoot. 

"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death." - Robert Fulghum
