This photograph of a bride and her father on her wedding day represents everything that I love about emotional, candid photography.
Captured in a true photojournalism style, where I simply found the best angle, best lighting, and best moment to press that magic button on my camera. The out of focus bride in the foreground who is wiping a tear from her I helps explain the adoring look from her daddy. Although this photo was taken in a typical hotel room at the Torrance Marriott, it is anything but a typical wedding photograph. If truth be told, these moments rarely happen or if they do happen they come and go in a matter of seconds. When these moments do happen, then it's my job to anticipate them and make sure that I capture the moment as best I can through my photography.
This image received a Silver award in the 2015 WPPI Print, Album & Filmmaking Competition in the Photojournalism category. What do you think of it? Does it speak to you? Would you like to have a photograph of this from your own wedding? If you do, I hope that you'll consider me as your wedding photographer. This Marriott is located in Torrance, California.
