We had never encountered a wedding dress quite like this one! We started taking photos of the bride using our normal methods and right away noticed that we couldn't see the same texture in the photos that we saw with the naked eye. So right away we realized that some nice north facing window light would do the trick. We brought the bride and groom to the 3rd floor of San Francisco City Hall and placed them by the window. Suddenly everything changed and we could see all the detail. Natural isn't always the best type of light for wedding photography, but if it is coming in from the side, it definitely creates more detail. The perfect solution for this dress.
