Judges Comments

  • I love the composition and the sense of texture. The groom all alone in the field contemplating the moment is truly captured in a very artistic manner.
  • This photograph has a dream like quality. The photographer framed this beautifully though the window and captured a very private moment of the groom that we don’t often see. The body language on the groom adds another element to the photo.
  • Sometimes it is nice to just step back and not interfere with the moment. Looking through the window feels like we are witnessing the groom seriously contemplating the gravity of his big day.
