Judges Comments

  • This image was a real find. I was shooting with the bride minutes before the wedding was scheduled to start and these two sweet Grandmothers showed up at the window to check on the bride and see what the hold up was. The curiosity and excitement in these two lovely women was like a tidal wave of love pouring into the room. I instinctively grabbed two or three frames of this brief event. This was one of my favorite moments of my 2011 weddings!!!
