I ♥ Texture ▌Sierra Vista Photographer, Arizona


We are loving texture over at I ♥ Faces this week. I have had this image on the back burner since the wedding of our good swing dancing friends last September. Given the military uniform and the swing dancing history of the couple, I wanted to try to create an image that evoked nostalgia, an old fashioned feel, an antique quality, as though you'd dug the picture out of your Grandma's hope chest. It was such a fleeting moment; bride and groom turning to head down the aisle as husband and wife, the look passing between them is priceless! And the onlookers, what a bonus! (The preacher is actually the groom's father!)

MY ENTRY:


Better than my entry this week would be the incredible capture my very own husband made tonight on our evening walk - Click Here!

This photo really does look timeless. From the clothing to the processing. Good job!

I love this photo and the nostalgic edit you did. :)

Those are the best pics where the bride and groom are looking and smiling at each other, signalling "This is it. We're married!"

Beautiful! My grandfather was in the army, and I love looking through my grandmother's old photographs of him in uniform.
You've recreated the feeling I get looking at the old pictures perfectly. Great job!
