This was a thoughtful image and sometimes these get overlooked, I was glad the photographer took the time to see this image and take it. There is a real nice feel from the guy in the corner, just a quiet, well-done “getting ready” moment.
I love scene shots and even more when I can layer the compositions. I had already scoped this shot out prior to the ceremony. Shot from the same room the bride was getting ready and photographed with the sublime Leica M9 and a 35mm summilux. I wanted the balance to be just right so I kept the bride in the bottom right corner of the frame.
