Before & After

For this before and after I chose an image that I never would've chosen if I was looking SOOC. 

My flash didn't go off, it was lit by a terrible elevator light and I probably came close to deleting it on the back of my camera (I do this sometimes to images that I think are are totally unusable).

The bride was waiting for the "first look" and I saw an opportunity as she was waiting..so I took it. 

Editing I had to craaaaank the exposure +3.01..hence all the grain.   

I also cranked the vignette...just because it seemed to work.  I've never done anything like that before before but loved what happened after I did.
