One of the the kinds of wedding photographs that I enjoy taking makes use of a interesting subject matter in both the foreground and the background and that's what I did for this image.
First the positioned Ace in the foreground, and then I asked Linda to stand 15 feet behind her near the edge of the grapevines that make up the Sunstone Winery Vineyard. Then it was a simple matter of providing direction that would elicit the right kind of expression and laughter from this very happy couple. An interesting fact about wine that is tangentially related to this wedding, is that the biggest wine consumers in the world are the Chinese. Perhaps the popularity of wine in China can be attributed to the fact that red is a lucky color in their culture. That's symbolism along with the purported health virtues associated with wine have led to the growth of wine consumption in China.
