Here we get a first view of Kristin and Jerrod standing in front of a simple blank wall near Pasadena City Hall. The most striking initial impression is realized after seeing Kristin's sneaky and playful expression as she reaches to steal a peanut from Jerrod's box of peanuts. With both subjects looking away from the photographer, I feel that a small sense of voyeurism is achieved since neither Jerrod nor Kristin appear to be camera-aware. The frisky action of Kristin reaching for the popcorn helps establish the tone for the entire engagement album and provides viewers with some measure of what is to follow. This image was wholly conceptualized by me and executed at my specific direction. You may also note that although the bride and groom's apparel is in the same color palette as the wall behind them, the similarity only seems to strengthen the simplicity of this photograph.
