My name is Gary Even. I'm a wedding photographer based in Indonesia and I love traveling for destination weddings wherever I can in the world.

In every photo session, I try my best to tell wonderful stories, capture creative image and moments in time. I love simplicity in my composition.

This Bride and Groom love music and playing musical instruments. The idea was to give them a creative wedding kiss photo. I wanted to play with shadow, colour balance, eyelines and contrast.

If I can add more graphical elements in one image, I feel it strengthens the image.

So for this photo taken at Ciputra Hall Surabaya, I asked their friends in their music group to bring their instrument and stand behind a white curtain whilst playing the wedding dance song with the bride and groom dancing in the foreground.

Waiting for the right moment was the most difficult part of this shot.I wanted to use 'eyelines' of the silhouette to direct the viewers eye to see the bride and groom

Camera Nikon D3s, 35mm lens,1/60 f 6.3

I set my external flash (1 SB 900 - off camera flash with CTB) behind the instrument players on manual setting with power 1/4 and set my camera with 5600 kelvin custom balance.I metered on the couple and just increased saturation in photoshop.

I love the final image, and my clients were very happy with the results and promoted me to their friends.
