I love this photo! It almost seems like it is right out of Mad Men and the 1960s. The body language and expressions are priceless. And, the clean background isn’t a distraction to the happy couple. Even the lighting seems to be out of the 1960s. Great job!
This image is clean, composed and hilarious. The humorous juxtaposition of emotions from these two newlyweds is captured beautifully by the photographer.
I can imagine the excitement felt by the photographer whose grand vision led to this grand image. It’s a rich scene as a gold leaf mirror reflects a lush ceremony that “mirrors” the lush light in the painting. The composition has just enough space and depth of field required to include the painting and the light sconce, but taking no chance of losing the focal point - the ceremony.
Here’s a throw of rice that created a standout image among thousands. A child caught mid-air...leaping with all her might to be sure her toss would measure up. I also like this moment because of how the girl stands out amongst a throng of people, many who seem almost unaware or at the least unready - thus she becomes the lone exuberant celebrant.
The groom is either waiting or stunned by that windswept veil. Perhaps it is both. I enjoyed the directness of this image that doesn’t muss around with laborious intrusions. It presents itself for what it is - a simple swoosh of fun. The composition is clean and neat, by a photographer who makes photography look easy. And, that’s a high compliment on any day.
This is a moment that could never happen twice. Nice symbolism here with the wind blowing the veil to the sky as the door swings open, priceless.
Creative cropping is what separated this photo from others in the category. The off-center placement of the couple, along with their expressions, made for a very nice and different image. Great use of confetti.
Whoa! What a room! Not to mention the photo itself which has become the moment in a sense. It’s the composition, light and color that dance within a gilded room around the straight-backed subjects who appear so statuesque, they mimic the room itself as though they have always been there.
I took this photo at a small wedding of beloved Asian couple in Klementinum chapel in Prague. Newlyweds reflection is in the polished piano.
