Black & White Bridal Portrait

This is my favorite black and white bridal portrait to date.

As the bride was putting on her vintage lace veil, I noticed slices of light falling dramatically, and knew I wanted to create a unique portrait.  I also wanted the photo to have a vintage feel because she was wearing a vintage wedding gown from 1965.  I chose Ilford XP2 400iso film because it would isolate the light by not distracting with color.  This portrait looks like it was taken in 1965.  Film has a very classic look, which lends itself to the artistry of this image.
