Judges Comments

  • Great classic moment, confetti spilling down, the flash of the camera, and solid composition at the peak moment of the kiss. It all comes together. If there's a weakness, it's that it's expected, which is why I don't rank it higher, but still, good execution of the moment. I'm sure the client would love to have this image.
  • I love all the layers to this photograph, from the bride and groom to the little boy at right to the crowd beyond and the flash in the background. The photographer captures nice emotion throughout.
