Bride Getting Ready at Terranea Wedding Photographers

This bride's three-ceremony wedding took place at the Terranea Resort and at her parents' home. Wedding photographers are often limited to locations that they didn't expect, such as this location, which is the bride's little brother's bedroom. For this portrait, taken at the bride's at-home non-denominational ceremony, I asked her to wrap her veil around her shoulders and body by crossing her forearms over her chest. I then climbed onto a chair and shot down on her, using a tight composition to eliminate distracting elements. The dark brown color of her brother's bedroom wall lent an elegant quality to this simple bridal portrait, and the window light coupled with a reflector created beautiful light on the bride's face.
