I like the painterly colors and the layers created by the raised glasses. Her modest expression shows her vulnerability, which is understandable when you are the center of attention for an entire day.
I really like this tastefully elegant use of graphic shapes in a store display and how the bride is holding a pair of shoes, and her bouquet, in one hand while reaching for another pair. Actually I like the way the entire scene comes together in symmetrically, colorful visual prose. The bride splits the frame in the middle, accentuating the repeating shapes.
Itʼs like a scene of fairies…little girls frolicking in a magic moment, under the twinkling lights at dusk. The available light and playful body language is perfectly captured just at the right second.
I have seen this technique of shooting into a reflection in a window or car door before, but her expression raised the bar of this photo. The reflection framed her anticipation and reinforced the emotion.
Just a great picture of leaving the church. Great expression on bride's face, how her head is tilted back. The crowd around her, rice in the air, all add to the perfect moment and composition of the image.
Well composed and excellent use of light in this “getting ready” photo. I like the dress in the background – it completes the frame.
This is a great gift to the client to establish sense-of-place of the wedding. I love this as a final image of the day.
There is a subtle and gentle feel to this photo that makes you feel as though you are an unassuming traveler watching a rite and passage of village life. The viewer becomes purveyor insistent on a vicarious journey with VIP access to the inner realm of something more. With all of the minimalist simplicity of this image, I find it intriguing that it is almost fantastical and larger than life. Wow. What a journey it is when good photojournalism holds the reins.
Nice composition and moments.

Thank you for the pictures. It was definitely a fun day we spent together. Between you and your assistant we felt very comfortable working with you and enjoyed our walking tour through the city. Prior to arriving in Rome I felt that I could trust you with payment and the contract that was set. I have already shown our pictures to many people and they asked how I found such a good photographer. You took wonderful pictures that we will cherish forever. Thank you for much for your professionalism and photographic abilities. Thanks again.
