I shot this image during the bride's make up and hair preparation, in a private villa in Athens.
The room was a little of the dark side, so I used a small flash bounced on a portable reflector. I turned the image into black and white in Photoshop and did some selective vignetting around the edges of the frame.
I also did some selective dodging and burning on her face, in order to achieve a more cinematic effect.
Her face was stunning and she knew it..!
When the preparation phase was finished we proceeded with shooting full body portraits and poses both alone and with friends and relatives in the house's garden.
