A Vintage Bride...
It was difficult, because the photos were old to begin with (and I had to work from a photo of a photo, so...!), but I loved the simple style, the cascading bouquet, the beaded detail at the bottom and her simple glow. The strob-ing and contouring trends of today don't always leave room for the soft glow or faint blush of a new and giddy bride, so there was something special about this job.
And the fact that they've been married for longer than I've been alive also added some romance to the project. A suitable post for Valentine's day.
Overall, I really enjoyed this piece and I hope that they were as thrilled with it on Christmas morning as I was to create it for them.
