Wedding photographer Mark Wallis, was awarded 1st place for photo 1410601 in the Emotion category for the WPJA's 2014 Q1 Photography Contest.
- 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.
