Photographer's Comment

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.

Judges Comments

  • Of all the “moment of prayer before the ceremony” 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.
