  • The photographer has captured the love between this couple through their body language. You immediately notice the bride’s foot propped up on the groom’s lap and his gesture that attempts to comfort his tired bride. This photo is filled with tenderness. The position of the couple within the frame provides a feeling of intimacy between them as life goes on around. His expression says it all.
