The Radiant Bride

It's amazing how the mood can shift and change throughout a wedding day. As photographer Deborah Dantzoff recalls, bride Jessi was all nerves before her ceremony at Hacienda del Maipo, a wedding venue outside of Santiago, Chile. "She couldn't even sit still, her legs were shaking non-stop," she says. "I tried to calm down her while we were taking portraits of her and the beautiful dress, but it wasn't working."

As Dantzoff remembers, that all changed after the ceremony. Jessi's nerves disappeared and euphoria set in. "At that point, she was having fun playing with her dress and moving it to everywhere," Dantzoff says. "In this moment, Jessi was not the nervous girl she was before. She was a happy bride bringing her all to the dance floor! She was radiant."
