Judges Comments

  • From the bride’s wide smile, to the excited expression on her guests’ faces, to the glittering sparklers, this picture screams festivity. The warm gold glow from the sparklers adds to the ambiance of this jubilant outdoor reception. Strong use of lighting, waiting for the exact moment as the bride neared the camera and the beauty of the sparklers all combine to make a beautiful frame.
