Judges Comments

  • Too funny; I want to be at this wedding. Well-composed chaos, (though some of the faces are lost) but it didn’t matter because the bride and groom are the focus and their faces are great.
  • Fun photo of a bride and groom reaching to personally toast with each individual guest..
  • My goodness! What a conundrum. This is a moment where toasting looks more like Twister. Arms and glasses fly left and right, this way and that way. Just follow the yellow and bubbly road; “Hands and arms and glasses… oh my!” But before I venture too far let’s all bow to a wonderful image. It’s composed well. The lighting is spot on and most importantly the moment is there before us with unassailable veracity.
