    The woman in the photo wore

    I am wondering if my sentences are grammatically correct.

    The woman in the photo wore a large white hat and a long white dress. She was smiling. The man beside her was dressed in a dark suit. His stern look and tight lips were in contrast to her dazzling smile.

    I'd use "contrasted with" instead of "were in contrast to".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Consider also "in stark contrast to."
