For this Pasadena wedding, I was very happy to capture this image of the groom's grandparents. This photograph was also entered in the 2015 WPPI Print, Album & Filmmaking Competition where it received a Silver Award. This image was entered in the Photojournalism category where retouching is not allowed. The only options that can be done to photographs in that category is the kind of dodging and burning that might have been done in a typical darkroom setting prior to the days of film. As is often the case, being in the right place at the right time is important part of being a good wedding photographer. One of the things that I strive to do when I'm photographing a wedding is pay particular attention to elderly guests. Weddings are formal affair and it may be one of the few occasions when and entire family comes together in one place at one time. Many years ago, a bride mentioned that very thing and stated that the only time her family comes together is during weddings and funerals. Pasadena City Hall is located in Pasadena, California.
