Just a unique moment and nice expressions.
I like how the photographer chose to light this scene. The choice of a hard, criss-cross side light was the right recipe to bring out the focused intensity of this DJ. The slight tilt of the composition and the right moment help to create a hot image that is unambiguously cool.
You don't need faces in this photo to tell the story, the best of a bunch of rather average photos. For me this was the best of them as far as thinking outside the box.
It's very rare to capture both the bride and groom overwhelmed in emotion as this photographer did and I like the depth of field that focuses on their expressions. Love the selection of black and white for this documentary style image.
The composition and use of color are the key elements of this image. I can see a large print of this image hanging on the wall of an important room or their home--that is what it is all about in my book.
Perfect composition and separation of the subjects. Beautiful color use.
