I was actually reviewing this bride's images with her just yesterday. She had chosen to do the more formal bridal images in the surrounds of the ballroom instead of the church. The winter-like decor was stunning and served as a exciting backdrop for the photographs. This is just a simple portrait yet the beautiful expression, gorgeous gown, and stunning surrounds combine for a great photograph of the bride. Lighting was supplied by my off camera Quantum shooting through a 36 inch umbrella. The ambient light supplied the fill. 15 seconds in Lightroom softened the highlights added the vignette for the finishing touch. Camera specs; Canon 40D fitted with 10-22mm lens at 16mm, F5.6 @ 1/15 second handheld, ISO 800, JPEG.
