Great lines in a super graphic image. The leading lines really draw you into the subject. Nice gesture of the bride and the swoop of the dress.
In all my 30-plus years of photojournalism, shooting both still images and video, I never encountered a made-for-photos scene quite like this. It strikes me as one of those once in a lifetime sort of moments in spite of its relative simplicity of linear graphic goodness.
This is a beautiful, inviting photograph with the right balance of light which appears to come from four sources: the illumination of the building, the candles, an incandescent source gently falling in streaks across the foreground and, of course, that lovely late evening sky. I chose this picture, not only because it has great use of natural light, but also because, well… I just like it.
The light was great and the position of the photographer was perfect to catch the little moment between bride and groom. Well done.
What a fantastic moment with a high-five between bride and groom as they exit the ceremony...past a lone guest who clasps her hands together in silent approval…past the dappled light that scatters across the aisle like the lingering rose petals dropped by a child...on their path from the altar and toward a hopeful life together. This is a moment indeed.
I couldn’t help trying to count the candles in this romantic scene. I gave up after reaching fifty. But one thing certain is that it was enough to counter-balance the light coming through those beautiful draperies and the perfect amount to capture a memory that we hope will grow ever richer with age.
