High energy and emotion drew me to this photo. Most of the time these pictures are shot from farther back, I liked that the photographer moved in close to the great expression.
The expressions on these girls is a joy to observe.
Photographer's CommentThe groom and his friends planned a surprise garter prank during the reception. It was a pretty chaotic moment and I just tried to get as close to the action as I could. I lit the scene with an on-camera flash bounced overhead into the white ceiling and wall. Shutter speed: 1/125sec Aperture: f4 Focal length: 24mm ISO: 2000

Mollie and Johanu
We just went through the pics and absolutely loved them. You really captured all the spontaneous moments we wanted captured, and the more formal pics were great too. Thanks so much for saving all those special memories for us.

Lauren & Mike
Mike and I finally got through all the pictures last night, and I can tell you that we had such a good time going over all of the happy moments (we had quite a few big laughs as well!). You did a fantastic job and we really cannot thank you enough. We were truly thrilled with the results and couldn't have asked for better people with whom to share our day.
