What do I look for when I go through submissions here at Vale + Vine? Emphasis on natural elements and outdoor settings, great use of natural light, flattering (but not stiff) poses and easy expressions, compositions that both tell a story and allow the eye to traverse the image well, details that don't look out of place or too contrived, and creamy, natural skin tones. Oh, and when it comes to tablescapes--ones that aren't jam-packed, but allow for some negative space to give the eye a rest! When Toronto photographer Heidi Lau submitted this styled shoot from the Belle Lumiere workshop in Tennessee, it was an easy choice, and one that I hope will inspire Canadian brides and vendors alike.
