I captured this photograph of this lovely bride in the parking lot of the Holy Transfiguration Russian Orthodox Church near downtown Los Angeles.
She was just about to exit her limousine and I stood nearby with my telephoto lens ready to capture the scene. She looked at someone standing nearby and all I had to do was press the shutter on my camera.
One of the funny things I remember about this wedding, is that I turned out to be instrumental in making sure that everything happened on time. After the ceremony, moments before we were to leave for Disney Hall for their portraits, the limousine stalled in the parking lot of the church and it could not be restarted. It had a dead battery. I happened to be the only person on location who had a set of jumper cables in his trunk, and so I pulled my car around, connected the jumper cables, and got the limousine started.
To this day I regret the fact that I was working alone, and that there wasn't a second photographer around to take photographs of me getting my hands dirty under the hood of the limo.
