    Shot a wedding yesterday. just starting to organize the shots.
    I pulled this one out first cause there is a history to it.

    The entourage arrived late as usuall, and while we would have time for normal
    posed shots afterwards they were suqeezing out the time slot for shots of the bride by herself. I didnt have more then 2 or 3 minutes before she had to go to rehersal so I grabbed this divider they had in front of the window, put it on the other side ( 150 pounds) and put her in front of it, I taped part of a veil over the glass to diffuse the light coming in and used fill flash.

    To my suprise nobody noticed me steal a prop umbrella from the equestrian
    centers storage closet.

    3 minutes....... anyways not trying to brag, just happy she got her shot.
    This pretty much describes her well, "grace under fire" So it a good portrait.

    Very nice, the prop and backdrop really make a lot out of what could have been a boring shot.

    the picture is great but i get the feeling of a "fake" smile coming from her...looks forced

    thanks guys,

    sometimes the smile can look a little weird cause the brides so emotional

    they are close to tears.
