Judges Comments

  • The bride had just been in tears after receiving blessings from her family at the end of a very musical bedeken ceremony. Her groom had placed her veil and now, taking a moment to gather herself, she adjusts it and readies herself for the ceremony to follow. I love how she's caught somewhere in a sad joy, between fear and anticipation. A harsh light softened by many windows.
  • Nice close-up of the bride who seems unaware that her photograph is being taken. She has a beautiful expression and the use of black and white and light give her a very elegant look.
