Portrait photography intends to depict the essence as well as the beauty of its subjects. Since some of our emotions, such as laughter or surprise, aren’t permanent, they represent only a moment in time. If we want to communicate the true spirit of a person, their character, we look for a serious or calm facial expression that will undoubtedly register an array of subtle emotions ranging from dreaminess to fearlessness and everything in between.
We can express a person’s character with a full face portrait a three-quarter view or a side profile like this very image of our bride. Here we emphasize her natural grace and collected presence.
