In this outstanding wedding album spread we can see the bride and groom hugging before their Château Le Parc wedding ceremony, seconds after they saw each other.
As wedding photographer, it is hard to judge your own images but I can honestly say that this is one of my most favourite photos I took during this beautiful wedding day. What makes it so special?
First, the image includes a series of elements of composition that makes it stand out. There are two subjects, the main one in the secondary or support subject. The couple is our main subject in this image in this placed on the right hand side of the frame. They occupied the largest portion of the frame which the is no room for questioning with the main subject is. The groom is wearing a blue suit and the beautiful bride is wearing a traditional white gown.
The couple is placed in the foreground in this image and they tell a love story.
On the left side of the shot, we can see the grandmother, wearing a pink suit looking at the bride and groom. She is a supporting character for subject in this image and her gaze create a virtual leading line towards the couple reinforcing their main role in the frame. Even without knowing who she is we can distinguish her facial features and we realize she's an older woman. The message I was trying to convey here is that the past is looking directly into the future. She is also placed on the left side of the frame the way we read for the way the X axis advances in a chart.
The two sports cars create several slight lines which increase the dynamism of the photograph. To reinforce that, I used the Dutch tilt and twisted the camera by 5°. It is just enough to create a sense of movement and dynamism in this beautiful wedding photo.
