This is an unexpected and strange image (what's with all those clocks?). The groom's smile and the couple's embrace provide a compelling contrast with the apparent disinterest of the woman and child in the background, as well as the folded arms of the seated woman. Not your predictable first dance ... ,
A time capsule, the multiple clocks set the tone of time. A charming photo that uses creative composition to move the eyes through the frame to the point of focus, the elated couple. ,
Beautifully captures the joy and wonder of the moment as the couple stare into each other's eyes, photographed, applauded and studied by their guests. Nice touch how the bride's dress, as it swirls, echoes the curves of the draped ceiling.
I tend to circle the bride and groom as they enjoy their first dance; and, of course, I'm always seeking to nail my focus on them. In this case, as I walked around the dance area, I happened to see the bride's son in the background with his phone camera aimed at his mom and new stepdad. His eye was on the couple not on the image on his phone; I quickly shifted focus to him and snapped the shutter. From the time I took it, I thought it was a cool shot.
