Judges Comments

  • The look on the bride’s face says it all. It’s unexpected for the groom to be that risqué on the dance floor, I would think. I would have preferred to have her eyes in the frame but her mouth says it all. The un-tucked shirt on the man on the right tells me it’s later in the reception and they’ve probably had a few drinks. Good thing the photographer stuck around for this great moment and took a chance with unusual composition to make this image.
