After a year of planning, when all that’s left to do is wait, this mother of the bride gleefully sprays the assembly line of bridesmaids as they file past.
What a great whimsical view of a mother-of-the-bride going through her routine of making the day better for others. The framing, color, depth of field, and even the window work to frame the mother as she kills some more ozone. Well, I guess you can never have enough hair spray on a wedding day!
The photographer shot the woman’s hair to blend in with the flower arrangements--you have to look twice to notice her presence.
Love this picture! Her soft cotton candy hair echoes the other elements in the frame. A pleasing subdued tonal range compliments the photograph.
With a pop of fuchsia, the photographer frames the new couple between the loving parents.
A special detail image that expresses hope for the bride and groom, a continued love between the parents themselves, and maybe a lesson in endurance for the young couple. But then, maybe I’m just reading into this. I like the ideas it conveys and it’s a superb photo.
In their wedding best, Mom and Dad look on, with proud—and perhaps tired— expressions.
Without having a bride or groom in the photo, the viewer knows exactly what is going on in this simply-composed photo. It is almost like you can feel their emotions as they jump from the image!
Sandwiched between two bridesmaids making last-minute calls, a father takes a step back from the chaos in this humorous shot.
Classic photograph. Priceless expression on the man framed perfectly between the two women. We can almost hear his thoughts. Distracting element on right should be cropped.
Absolutely comic moment between old and young. Total disconnect between the father and the cell phone chatting daughter and bridesmaid. A first-rate moment.
This photo is like a well-written novel with it's characters fully described, except that the viewer of the photo creates their individual personalities in his or her own mind each time they look at it. This successful photo could be viewed daily and each time it would have the same intrigue on the mind. It makes me want to know MORE!
In a truly touching shot, a mother and bride stand cheek to cheek. Looking towards each other, with their eyes closed, you can almost picture them swaying back and forth.
While the wedding reception swirls around them, the bride and her mother seem completely isolated in their own world for a moment. Well crafted to show the environs but not to lose the importance of the emotion shared between the two.
