The symmetry of shape in the posture of their embrace, and the lines of the drape and the back of her dress all bring this image together. Her white to his black. All of these elements serve as a visual embrace of this strong emotion and intimate moment.
The simple hug and the small part of the man's face is all you need to convey a really big emotional moment. I think the emotional impact is great photographed from this angle that it might not have been if it were photographed from the side. The placement of the hands and arms just say so much about this couple.
Clean and simple, you are transfixed on this man's loving embrace.
Nothing beats the beauty of a real moment created without fuss or fanfare by a photographer who knows its best to “be there.” Life as a photojournalist is a front-row seat to life’s daily dramas, both joyous and sad. It’s a privilege to be a witness and better still, to have the skills to see and record a moment with that beautiful relationship we can make with our cameras.
This is all about the moment and the connection between the bride and groom and the older gentleman.
It’s amazing how light and composition can create the formative setting for a powerful image of a subtle, yet exquisite, moment. Looking at all those entry points into this image, the minister’s hands, the candles, the edge of the table and all of it framed by the small group of people in the room who all look in her direction with subdued facial expression. What a beautiful image of a simple and elegant moment.
There were so many different types of emotion wonderfully captured in this category, making it by far the most difficult to judge. This photo of what appears to be father and daughter stood out for its subtle yet tender moment. Her hand on her fathers face completes this elegant frame.
The beautiful light and faded colors in this photo act as the right vehicle to soften this intimate moment shared between a bride, and presumably, her mother. Also aiding the image is the circular path of the arm’s embrace which both acts as a leading line and a softly-lit frame that keeps the eye upon the bride’s heartfelt emotion.
This is not the kind of emotions one would expect to see at a wedding, but it looked as if it was a fairly quick moment. I just want to know what happened!
An unexpected image, anger is not often an emotion captured on wedding days. This humorous image is artfully executed with a good use of shallow depth of field. To be a fly on the wall in this situation...
The lack of emotion at left and right in this photos lead us to his tears. Their solemnity act as partner to his transparency and prompt us to a shared reverence. Thus, the image leads us to respect for the moment.
Great expression and great color! Sometimes all you need is a tight shot of an expressive face.
