I often get asked if shots like this one are real...and it most definitely is! However, as a wedding photographer I feel it's my duty to let you know that not all veils have the same flying power...and some veils do not fly. If a flying veil shot is important to you read on for some tips for selecting a veil so we can capture that "flying veil" shot you've always dreamed of.
1. Avoid Heavy Details - heavy details and beading are beautiful but they do weigh down your veil.
2. One Layer is Best - multiple layers of tulle can be hard to toss.
3. Fine tulle flies more freely!
4. If in doubt...test it out before you make your final selection! I find it's best not to totally toss the veil up, but rather have someone reach it up as high as possible, then just a gentle toss from there.
* Morgan's veil could not have been more perfect. It was a single layer of beautiful, light-weight tulle and the light beading all the way around gave it just the right amount of weight to fall evenly and beautifully.
