Her floral crown juxtaposed against dark rocks in the foreground allowed for the stark contrast that we need in order to achieve balance in a photograph...In order to obtain this Photograph, Jennifer was working with the bride's Veil in conjunction with the Wind while I was directing her hands in her legs into a pose that felt fluid and natural considering the motion that was being created by Nature.
