This is Katie, of course. This was one of my warm-up photos in the bridal shoot we did. There’s nothing about this that says “bride” but I like the portrait anyway.
The lighting here is very simple – she is sitting in the opening of the doorway leading to our deck, which, in the late afternoon, is in shadow but which is open to perfect, soft ambient skylight. One of my many assistants was holding a white reflector below the frame of this photo. (I don’t actually have many assistants but Katie had a retinue, including a sister, a cousin and her mother.)
The light was beautiful and so was Katie.
