Thank you everyone for the comments! The most humbling note about this photo...I forgot about it until recently, I was going through my photos organizing them as I was searching for pictures for my daughter's bridal shower. I found this print and it reminded me how proud I was when I captured this image. I have learned so much about lighting. I love photography and want to continue to grow in this field! Happy day! #11494052
