What I love about veils is...everything! Nothing excites me more when my brides wear veils, the longer the veil, the better! (Ok, I get excited whenever we are offered cake at a reception too!) If you are a bride and you are on the fence as to weather or not you will wear a veil, I want to encourage you to just do it! You can always remove it later on in the day. But veils just add so much to the photographs.

Here's why I love 'em:

1. You can create beautiful bridal portraits

This photo below of Heather is breathtaking. I especially love the fact that the wind caught the veil, it gives the photo such a dreamy effect!  And it gives the hands something to do. "What do I do with my hands?!" I try to avoid stiff and overly posed images. I want my portraits to reflect the natural personality of my clients and I always want them to feel comfortable. Giving the hands something to do, like hold the veil, creates natural gesture and gorgeous portraits!

2. Veils make excellent backdrops

One of the things I think looks so pretty is when bridal details are placed on top of the veils, or when the veils are gently draped over top of the details. It definitely adds a softness to the photo and gives it that bridal, wedding look (perfect for the album!)

3. Stunning bride and groom portraits

I love romantic images, I am drawn to creating them on wedding days and the veil is one of the things that I use to evoke this feeling. Also, I just love the way they look draped across the frame of the photograph!
