Wedding photographer Erin Chrisman, was awarded 1st place in the Silhouettes and Shadows category for the WPJA's 2014 Q1 Photography Contest.


  • The photographer had the right idea to expose for the light spilling across the curtain and then wait for the right moment when the pencil and that lovely profile were in the right position. However, the best part of the image is the result of the man at left watching the scene. He adds a layer of intrigue to the image that takes the moment from being just another interesting silhouette to an image that creates wonder.
  • Everything comes together for a great photo-the composition, the body language and especially the colors. This silhouette photo oozes atmosphere!
  • A great use of color and silhouette is used by the photographer to create this stunning image of a common scene on a wedding day. Each descending silhouette adds layers of information and interest leading us to the bride. Nicely done.
