Looking beyond their fancy duds, Newman reveals the kids’ true personalities as they wait for the ceremony to begin: the goofball, the mischievous one, and the reverent princess.
Delightful expressions on the children create a classic photo. More attention to cropping would clean up the distracting element on the left.
This photo really shows the individual personalities of all five children involved in the wedding. Cropping the bride out of the photo gives focus to their attitudes about the wedding. The different body positions also frame what is shown of the bride.
The photographer’s crop creates a colorful and intriguing composition. Clutching her bright orange umbrella, the girl’s vivid accessories make her pop against the textured background of monochromatic dresses.
Trailing behind the rest of the group, the young flower girl mindfully lifts her dress up so she doesn’t trip. The curve of the park steps and the overhanging trees lead one’s eye through the rest of the shot.
With her hand over her heart and the pup’s leash in hand, this little girl’s expression is charming. We love that the photographer got down to a lower vantage point to capture both the face of the girl and the dog.
Charming picture. The little girl looks so very disarmingly proud of her role in the wedding party. A tighter crop might strengthen it.
The use of black-and-white in this image accentuates the diverse textures in the background while the off-center position of the subjects creates a simple yet artful composition. What a vivid expression on the boy’s face!
This flower girl’s befuddled expression takes the cake. Her difference in height breaks the continuity of the staggered line of bridesmaids, and the cropping at their waists focuses the attention on the little girl.
The photographer has treated these two subjects as equals in this composition with one slight difference: Your eye is drawn to the boy’s feet dangling above the ground.
This picture has a truly classic quality to it that seems to invoke Norman Rockwell. The photographer captured well the confidence exuded by the grandfather and the curiosity and admiration of the child.
Gazing out of the shot, the boy seems to channel Marlon Brando. Supporting himself on the limousine, with his other hand on his hip, one wonders for whom this cool little man is waiting.
This picture has a sense of mystery and elegance to it. The boy's body language and his distant stare show an impatience of a boy forced to wear a suit for hour and hours. This photo captures my imagination.
This picture is too funny! The little girl is being taken for a ride by this never-ending dance circle.
The young girl, looking a bit bewildered, is literally going along for the ride as she is swept into the adult world. Great contrast in her expression and the expression of the adults.
The photographer catches a lighthearted moment between two of the younger members of the bridal party. Dressed to match from head to toe, these two girls share a giggle.
The pure joy in this photo has to put a smile of remembrance on every viewers face-the hallmark of a great wedding photo.
