20TWELVE Photos + Phrases: Monthly Template June

* L Y R I C A L *

Here is the 20TWELVE Photos + Phrases June Monthly Template layout.

Our DD married in June.  I felt fortunate that she asked me to take her Bridal Portraits. I managed to come up with some beautiful photographs of her gorgeous Justin Alexander wedding gown.

A lot of layering has been done in Photoshop to achieve this grungy look.  Her gown, hair + bouquet speak vintage with a modern twist.  When preparing for Bridal portraits, I learned to take the extra time + effort to fluff the gown, layer it artfully and let the wind blow.  Encourage the bride to pose creatively and push the limits. Eventually, your camera will find that perfect angle.  Make sure to get plenty of the full length of the gown, a lot of close-up angles and glimpses of the Bride-to-Be's personality.

Here are a few other Bridals that turned out beautiful.  As you can see, textures, as used in the layout above, dramatically change the effect of a photo.
