This image here is a perfect example of a candid photograph and being prepared as a wedding photographer for moments like these. Since I was using my telephoto lens, I could not hear what the couple said to each other. I could only be ready to react to whatever happened. To this day, I still don't know what was said but I do know that the bride will smile every time she looks at this image and remember what her husband said to her at the time to make her laugh. In terms of set up, the only directly I gave was to walk in a certain direction holding hands with the bride out in front. Then I just waited for the magic to happen. Some of my favourite wedding images happen to be candid moments from the wedding day because it usually captures the true personalities of the couple. Lighting is also very important when deciding on wedding portraits. In this particular image, I back lit the couple knowing that the light from the wheat field would help illuminate the couple in front. Light will always be the guiding force in taking a photo. If the light is bad, the image will fall flat. Dynamic lighting and how it falls of the couple is equally important.
