Sometimes a photographer plans a lot to get a perfect image. We stage the lighting, find perfect angles, and move the elements around to create nice a composition. But sometimes beautiful moments just happen. I find that the best images come as surprises.
This picture is a great example of a moment in time that was not planned or staged, just captured.

It was one of the last shots taken on a wedding day. We went on the balcony to take some fresh air and possibly some late night shoots. It was a gorgeous wedding full of great energy. My gorgeous bride Kato was excited, overwhelmed with emotions and pleasantly tired. For a moment she looked inside the window into the reception hall, where some of the late guests were still dancing, *click* and that was my shot!

The lighting was coming through the large glass window lighting up Kato's beautiful silhouette from behind. Her position was natural and perfect. Her dress with an open back was made for the shot. The design on the window created a very interesting graphical feel. The overall mood was magical.

I had my 24-70 Nikon lens on the camera. I framed my elegant bride on one third of the frame, turned on the highest possible ISO (6400 on my D700) and prayed for her not to move. I was able to take a couple of clicks and she walked away.

I believe that the most interesting moments come unexpected and unplanned. They happen in between the important wedding moments. They are behind the scenes. It's fun when a photographer feels the moments and is ready to react quickly to capture the best of them.
