Photographers chase the light wherever it falls for painting the subject in front of them. Light sets the mood of the image as well as shape and contour. I always like the end of the day light for my outdoor portraits of a beautiful bride. Yes, I can work in harsher sun and add off camera flash but why???
The multiple aspects of this image that work so well is the light, color, movement and composition. These rules of portrait order will come to you like second nature the more you work with your camera. This image was one of those moments you wish would happen but never does at your command. The wind blew gently from left to right and created the movement of the veil while adding emotion to the posed image. I love real! I always like to push for movement in my images, but when God gives you the moment it's PERFECT.
