Best of the best of Shareen Bridal Photography 2015

The year was filled with brides.  All of them were beautiful and all created such glorious moments of beauty to honor the day of their marriage.Over the next few months we will share their weddings with you in bits and pieces... from their flowers to their boys.

Here, we celebrate those who captured them in the full blush of celebration; the photographers, those silent witnesses who carefully and mriaculously hold still in time these shimmering moments.These are the best of the best images of our brides in 2015.
