Reminiscent of classic documentary photo essays this photograph nicely captured a relaxed moment before the wedding when members of the wedding party are absorbed in their own preparations of getting ready.
This is some good seeing. Maybe a little bit too much wide angle, but I cannot see the situation so I will not second-guess too much. I love the hand on the belly. That little detail takes this photo from kind-of-nice to almost-painful, making me feel the tension. Framing works well, too.
This can be a very hard shot to make. But the photographer captured the right moment with the bride waving with the reflection showing the others waving back at her. Nicely done and a high degree of difficulty.
The photographer used a well placed strobe to make the bride stand out in front of all the work being done for the wedding. The worker bees shrouded in yellow tungsten light are a good contrast to the daylight balanced bride. It looks like there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
