Wedding photographer Janis Ratnieks, was awarded 5th place in the Bride and Groom category for the WPJA's 2009 BRIDES Magazine.


  • This humorous action shot demonstrates that, when shooting weddings, the only thing that can be expected is the unexpected. We love the ducks flying off in the same direction as the groom! Comical moment – except for the groom I suppose! The reaction of the ducks adds excitement to the photo. Great example of using the environment as a backdrop. The scene of a typical bride/groom portrait got interesting when the groom takes a fall and the photographer doesn’t miss the moment. The brides astonished look, the fleeing mallards and the curious passer-by compliment the image.
