The photographer in me strives for aesthetic control in a world of visual chaos. During a wedding ceremony compliance is hard fought.
At odds is often lighting, available and artificial, as well as locations, indoor or outdoor- not to overlook the structure of the event and its characteristic movements.
I have touched on the "cake moment" in past post. This particular photograph I enjoy especially.
It has framing elements that says it all. The graphic soft focus groom. Highlights of the necklace and earrings. The lighting is flattering as is the suggestive expression of the bride. The warm linen napkin is supportive to the image.
The icing on the cake, (pun intended) is just that, as it seeps through the brides fingers adding a touch of humor to what can be a dry occasion.
