This image is both heartbreaking and beautiful. The bride visits her ailing mother (presumably), holds her hand as she gives her a kiss. The photographer, recognizing this intimate situation, wisely chose a mid-range lens and waited quietly for the moment.
This image truly stuck out as the leader to me; the emotional connection in this photo is very powerful. It stood out because it is a true story and a real-life moment. I was impressed with the photographer willing to take such an intimate photo. Beautiful.
A tender and tearful moment between the newlyweds is told through the passionate grasps shared between them. The high-key background works well with the white of the brideʼs gown and composing them at left, following the Rule of Thirds, makes for a powerful moment.
This sweet moment between bride and groom delights attendees and, of course, viewers like me. I enjoyed every part of this image. All the vital and sustaining fundamentals required, have been met with aplomb.
