Tip #3. Long Veils.

I am a HUGE fan of a floor length veil, not huge actually, ENORMOUS fan! Chapel, Cathedral, Grand Cathedral, you name it.
For some reason, I haven't had many brides sport the long veils. It's so sad! I just don't understand it ladies. I am writing today to show you what an amazing accessory these gorgeous veils can be and how amazingly awesome they can make your wedding and bridal images. I think if you see them the way I see them you will fall in love.

Check these puppies out and tell me you don't want one-

This first image is from Yervant. My absolute favorite veil photograph of all time.

Maloman Photographers:
Aveena Studios:

These next 5 are from my favorite photographer of all time, Mr Jerry Ghionis. His talent is just ridiculous!

Th next 3 are from Cliff Mautner. One of my top 10 fave photogs.

Probably one of my top 5 fave photogs, Susan Stripling. She is a master of sunsets. All of her images have that warmth to them. Just plain beautiful.

I apologize for all of you ladies that are already married like me and chose to go with a different length veil because I'm sure you now all have veil envy like I do. BUT, I still have my wedding gown and am going to schedule a TTD session for my 10 year anniversary and you better believe I will switch out my old veil for a long one. It'll be my second chance! I can't wait!
And if you're not yet wed, just keep in mind what an important role a veil plays in your wedding photos. No matter what the length, I dare you to be bold with it and make a statement. Whether its a cathedral veil like these, or a fun birdcage or short funky veil. Your wedding images will thank you!

Katie and Nick. Engagements. Utah Wedding Photographer.

I was so happy to be able to have an afternoon of shooting with Katie and Nick. Nick is my brother-in-law. He is so smart and so way nice! I love him! And his fiance, my soon to be sister-in-law Katie, is so sweet and beautiful. Their such an awesome pair and so fun to hang out with. Thanks for freezing to death with me and for all of the cute outfits your brought! I 'm glad you found your jeans Katie!

I seem to have this silhouette obsession lately. I can't get enough of sunsets and silhouettes.
