PHOTO CAPTION BY BRIDES MAGAZINE: The â€œwormâ€ usually happens late in the reception, after hours of partying, but this pair got their groove on before sunset. The soft glow of twilight, acting like a spotlight on a dance floor, enabled Alves to freeze one reveler's jubilation, flying tie and all. By shooting up from the ground, the photographer captured the dancers as well as the bystanders cheering them on.
This picture is colorful and lively. The photographer has juxtaposed the colorful lanterns with the black and white tiles to frame the dancing couple.
There were many of these 'dance floor with light' photos but this one comes together really well. The color of the balloons as well as the strobe going off, it's a pretty perfect photo.
The photographer is directing the viewer to the bride and her friend as they are overwhelmed with emotion.
It's not perfect but it's one of the stronger moments with real emotion of the 500+ images I just looked through. And moments tend to trump a lot of other technical issues
It goes without saying that there is a lot of emotion on a wedding day. It is important to look for moments that are on the periphery of the main action. As you gain experience, it comes more naturally to monitor different developing situations and not to be so focused on the obvious that you miss something else. I would have like the groom and his mother a little better positioned but I only has a few seconds and this was the best I could line them all up. ,
The contrast in this picture is nice because it really makes the bride stand out in the center of the dancing crowd. Her expression is fun and flirty.
Just a wonderful and fun photograph. It combines information with visual impact. The rich black and white tones makes it a classic.
This couple really went for it in their first dance and I like the wide composition of the shot.,
