Wedding photographer Simon Carr, was awarded 1st place in the Getting Ready category for the WPJA's 2009 Q1.


  • Sweet, tender, quiet moments like these are often overlooked. Not seeing either of the faces doesn't bother me, because I like how the little girl is fixated on the buckle and the bride-to-be is fixated on the little girl. That kiss of light coming in adds to the angelic feel of the moment.
  • This is a lovely picture of a child helping the bride in what appears to be last minute fixes. It jumped out for its sweetness in content and the beauty and simplicity in the scene and composition. The photographer made a great decision by not getting too close and letting us look in on this moment just as it was.
