Let me just go on record: I love photographing a bride wearing a cathedral length veil. I love, love, LOVE it! Bridal veils are so iconic. And bridal veils in photographs look stunning! Although the initial origin of the wedding veil was meant to hide the bride’s face from the groom, veils can add drama and softness to any bridal look. A veil is also an accessory have great photographic appeal. It’s a moment with Mom, a silly capture with kids, a beautiful framing element, a dramatic element to romantic portraits. It can also be used to camouflage areas where a bride doesn’t feel comfortable showing skin. Veils are just so beautiful. And it your on the fence about whether or not you should wear a veil on your big day, truly go with whatever makes you feel the most comfortable. Anyhow, here are a few of my favorite images of my beautiful brides sporting the eternally elegant bridal veil.
