Chantelle's wedding dress was very classic and made of the finest fabrics with beautiful lace. Once Chatelle arrived at Shuttle Hall to get ready for her wedding ceremony she hung the dress in the bridal suite. What I love about this photograph is the shape of the dress and how Chantelle is looking and thinking about her BIG day!
When I took this photograph I placed myself so that I could capture her reflection in the mirror to add some dimension to the image. The sun was still on the front of the house so the light was very soft coming through the window which complimented the shape of the dress and allowed for the details to come through.
I love the soft natural colours in the photograph. My editing style is to complement the colours of the venues and not add filter styles to my editing which sadly is a common theme in today's photography world.
Filters have their place, you only have to look at Instagram to see that. However, your wedding photographs need to be timeless and be a representation of the colours of the day which would have been a huge consideration in choosing the venue.
Most newlyweds will remember the Black and White images with just the flowers being in colour. Although a popular style in its day, its one that dated very quickly.
When your thinking about who will photograph your wedding look at their portfolio, ask to see full weddings and make sure their style is consistent. Many a beautiful photograph has been runied with bad editing!
