Why Window Images for Brides?

Ok, I will admit that barely a wedding goes by where I fail to get an image of the bride in front of a window.  She may be looking out the window or simply standing by it with the soft light it creates.  Whether we have the bride looking out the window, looking at the photographer or contemplating her wedding bouquet, we always want to get some of these images.  The reason for this is that window light is very complimentary to the brides face.  If the bride i s positioned correctly, a very soft and warm light is created on her face and will add to her beauty.  One of the great things about photographing weddings at city hall is the fact that their are 3 perfect North facing windows that can be used for this type of photography.  In the photo above please note how nicely the light reflects on the brides flowers and also her veil.  Overall it makes for a great wedding photo.  Here is a list of some of our most common poses with brides and windows:

  • Bride looking out window.
  • Bride looking at camera with window light.
  • Silhouette of bride created by placing her directly in front of the window.
  • The back of the bride looking out window (showing the back of the wedding dress)
  • Sitting on Window sill where possible.
  • Bride in corner of window with light on her face.
