This image hit me, the moment I saw it. In this image, I see, or better feel, what it is all about. We do not celebrate weddings because of stunning locations, great light, amazing dresses and we do not celebrate weddings because of the many hilarious moments that might occur. We celebrate weddings because of love. And that is what this image is about.


I love the quietness here, not only at the moment but also the soft light, the subtle tones and the film-like processing. The composition is not classic and the focus sits on the hair instead of her eye which both enhances the emotional impact for me.

 The image feels real to me. It let me feel, and that for me is the most an image can accomplish. Bravo!
