Judges Comments

  • The bride told me before the wedding, that the photos from exiting the church are very important to her. So I took every measure possible to ensure that I get a lot of excellent photos of this situation, and they just loved the photos! :)
  • Expressions, nice use of wide angle with confetti/rice locked into place all worked here. Sometimes slow shutter speeds are fun here, but in this case, high shutter speed helped to let viewer see emotion on everyone’s face and thus share the excitement with the wedding couple.
