Dani cannot contain her excitement when the final touches of her hair & make-up are revealed to her before her intimate Yosemite elopement. Seeing & using the available light is our not only a welcome challenge for us but also something for which we pride ourselves in doing exceptionally well. Dani was getting ready in a dark hotel room (like most brides) and thankfully, the make-up designer brought her own lighting. By exposing for the lighting, Tara was able to frame & capture Dani's expression in a beautiful contrast of highlights & shadows with the emphasis on the feeling behind her beautiful smile.
