Persian Wedding Photographer Beverly Hills Los AngelesEvery so often, a photographer encounters a dress detail that is truly stunning, as was the case at this Persian wedding at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara. This bride's dress back detail was so delicate and beautiful, so I wanted to create an image that would truly highlight it. I shot this image after this couple's Persian Muslim ceremony, which took place at a lavish Sofreh in front of hundreds of guests. My idea was to showcase just the dress detail, but I decided that adding the groom's face would make this portrait even more beautiful. I asked the groom to hold onto the upper part of his new wife's arm, and I the moved the bride's cathedral-length veil over her shoulder and positioned it so it would hang beautifully down her opposite side. I chose a B&W treatment for this image because I thought it highlighted the dress in a much more beautiful and timeless way. The color image is fine, but I thought the image looked much more elegant in B&W. Persian wedding photographed at the Four Seasons Santa Barbara The Biltmore in Santa Barbara, California.
