Outdoor Wedding Portraits: Upstairs Observers

As I was photographing this couple, I was shadowing them across the street as we walked between locations.

I saw we were walking toward this hotel and there was a mother and her son standing on the balcony. I ran ahead of my couple and got into position, hoping that the mother and son on the balcony would notice my couple as they walked underneath them.

The streets for relatively deserted as we were shooting in the early morning and so my couple was highly noticeable and thus warranting some notoriety.

Everything came together perfectly and I waited for my couple to walk in just the right location so that the groom would be clearly outlined on the upright pillar. I was just fortunate that the bride was perfectly framed inside the window of the doorway.
