Your wedding day can truly slip away in a flash, so you'll want the perfect collection of wedding photos to reflect on it. Today's brides are constantly looking for new, creative ways to express their individual styles in their photos.

Grass seems to be lightly dusted with a bright coat of snow, and leaves on trees give off a sparkling, white glow. Get ready for your science lesson on the next page. (It won't be too long or boring, we promise!)
