Beautiful Evening Bridal Portrait, Red LionSeveral years after our wedding, my lovely wife Kate posed for this portrait at her parents’ farm in Red Lion, PA. The hazy evening and its rosy hued light gave a soft, romantic feel to the portrait. I often use the naturally beautiful York and Lancaster county landscapes as backdrops to create portraits for couples on their wedding day. The duller hues of green, pink, and white give a soft and peacefully romantic impression in this bridal portrait. The green of the grass, the landscape, and the branches above offered a natural frame to draw the viewer’s eyes to the elegantly posed bride at the portrait’s center. Her features are dimmed in order to contrast her profile with the cloudy evening sky. With her wedding dress flowing behind her, standing tall, hand to her shoulder, and eyes cast downward, this pose gives the bride a mysterious and elegant appearance. I enjoy taking portraits of brides both before and after their weddings so as to capture their natural emotions and expressions throughout their special day.
