Beautiful Classic Bride Portrait using Window Light

A classic image with a twist, this portrait focuses on the bride as she gets ready for her wedding day. I noticed the beautiful window light in one area of the room and posed the bride so that her face was facing into the light. Using this technique, I also created highlights that emphasized the details of her look, such as makeup, the veil, hair and her dress. A more detailed background would have pulled focus away from these the bride, but finding a pot with a nice clean backdrop helps focus the viewers attention on the bride.

This photo was taken with a Nikon D750 DSLR at ISO 640, f2 aperture, 1/320th shutter speed with a Nikon Nikkor 85mm f1.4 prime lens, at 85mm focal length.
