This photograph, taken by Kent Meireis, was awarded 2nd place in the Groom Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2008 Q3.
Pictures like this demonstrate how a photographer can work close in without being a distraction. It comes from being comfortable to be around. People see how you work and think and forget that you are even in the room.
- Of all the â€œmoment of prayer before the ceremonyâ€ photos in this batch, this one was the best. It showed the most energy. You could tell it was right before the wedding itself (and not possibly a bachelor party) since all the men are in their suits. Good faces on the grooms' party.
