Bless this Mess

When I shoot the 'getting ready' part of the wedding day, I always call ahead to make sure it's okay to come to the room. The answer I almost always get is, "sure, but let me clean the place up before you get here". I tell them for this part of the day, the messier the better, as it makes for great photos.

Tech Stuff:
When a subject is heavily back lit, there's two ways to deal with it, balancing the exposure with flash, which tends to flatten out the image, or expose for the subject and hope for the best. The latter makes for interesting photos, but you never really know what you're going to get.

Camera: Nikon D700 (both)
Lens: 17-35 mm AF-S f/2,8 (top), 28-70 mm AF-S f/2.8 (bottom)
