Bride at the Bowery Hotel

When most people look at this image for the first time they see a bridal veil, soft and with a lot of bright negative space in the frame. But do you see the face in the middle of the veil? I love this in-camera multiple exposure of the bride against her bridal veil and I loved creating this image for her. This 2013 Bowery Hotel wedding was so beautiful and delicate, and I think that this image perfectly suits the mood and feel of the day. The bride’s veil was hanging in the window of her Bowery Hotel suite and when I saw the light streaming through it I knew I had the opportunity to make a creative portrait. I took a profile picture of the bride while she sat waiting to get her hair done. Then I took a picture of the veil and the two images were layered into one in my Nikon D3s. I love the sweet juxtaposition of the bride’s beautiful face and the lacy veil.
