Elegant Bridal Portrait

This is perhaps my favorite photograph that was captured by Jerry Ghionis at this Star Wars wedding.

I never would've never thought of positioning the veil in this way or of placing Linda in direct sun as he did here (as long as open shade was available).

I remember thinking at the time that it was so very hot and I was worried about Linda's wedding under the heat. But she seemed super cooperative with his posing and there are few photographers that I trust more than Jerry Ghionis. And so with a few clicks of the shutter, Jerry created this magical image which is one of my favorites and also one of my clients' favorites.

If you're reading this and you are not a photographer, you may not realize the difficulty of creating a great image in full sun but Jerry executes this image flawlessly by making sure that Linda's face is pointed directly to the sun removing any harsh shadows while at the same time making sure that the sun is to one side rather than full on creating texture to the veil and dress
