Judges Comments

  • Quiet moments before the wedding are as important to the wedding narrative as the ceremony itself. A bride taking a last look in the mirror is a timeless image. Here the photographer underexposes to let the room go dark and the bride and her small mirror become the focal point. It’s a lovely composition.
