Ahhh such grand formality reigns at far left as a bride and groom take their roles with aplomb but, “meanwhile back at the ranch,” code for “behind the scenes” in the parlance of 1950’s western films - a grand informality exists. It just another wedding for this gents who use the time for matters, surely, of equal import.
A successful detail shot can tell a story and in this case that's exactly what it did. The dress is so grand that the bride has to be on her toes, on top of the stool, to even reach it. All this caught in a detail of her limbs, but made you pay attention to the story.
Nice little lyrical detail. Her being on her toes brings a lovely energy to this photo.
This couple and DJ are blissfully unaware of the fly on the wall photographer. Nice use of light and graphic elements add to the image.
This image had great pattern and color AND a nice moment of the guy dancing. Well-exposed and nice composition with the kid in the corner watching.
You’d think rain would ruin a wedding, but based upon this image it just added to the joy. The focus on the drops made this image a standout.
It's the hands. The embracing hands on the back show emotion.
Black and white works well with the chiaroscuro lighting in this image. Just a beautiful moment that I can imagine the couple would have framed on their wall.
