I think it's strange when brides close their eyes in their bridal portraits... it's one thing to do it if the photographer asks her to. It's part of his vision.. but when brides do it on their own I think it's weird. Do you want to look like you were sleeping? I'm just not sure why brides do the things they do. Do they think that that's what you're supposed to do? And worse of all... the brides are "asleep" and the groom has no idea and he'll be smiling or giving an expression that doesn't match. strange. Odd. Girls are weird! I've proved it. It's a fact.
