This photograph, taken by David Murray, was awarded 5th place in the Reception category for the WPJA's 2009 Q3.
- This image for me describes best what I wish always to do for my clients: to be fearless in taking my photos. I wish to give them images that are true, yet unexpected. Most of all, they should remain as touchstones to a day that they will cherish forever. When my brides and grooms see their photos, they will recall the warm summer air, her perfume, his warm embrace. And they will see it as a milestone in love's journey together.
- A technically perfect photograph under a wide range of exposure values. The sparklers are a nice touch for a reception.
