Our lives together ahead of us

I've chosen this one for Yinks. A slightly different slant on moment capture.

This the Fine art wedding photography I much prefer. When I started photographing weddings I found that I was more interested in capturing images like this and not so much the reportage of the event which is what most photographers are after.

I think each photo should really be a lovely image on it's own. Therefore time and care should be spent in it's construction. Now you can imagine how many photos I would get out of the day with that sort of approach...not many.

nice shot, don't like the hallow around the couple though, looks like a PP spill.

priceless moment captured

my only nitpick is the groom's jacket sleeve looking a little washed out
