I worked as a cameraman for TV news in Spain for 12 years before becoming a wedding photographer, so I have taken the same photo journalistic approach to my wedding photography. 95% of the time I try to be as non-intrusive as possible, but I also love to take some portraiture's and creative shots during the wedding day.

This image was taken inside the bridal car, at the moment when the bride arrived at the church and saw the guests waiting for her, you can see that everything had built up into this moment and all her feelings and nerves are on display. I traveled from the getting ready location to the church with the bride and her father, sitting on my knees and peered with my camera between the front seats of the car.I wanted to go unnoticed as I hoped to capture the emotions between father-daughter at it's purest form.

It was difficult for me to maintain balance and frame properly because my height is 1.90 m. and there was a lot of movement inside the car due to the road curves and the frequent stops and starts.

The equipment used was a Canon 5D MKIII with Canon 24 mm.1.4L II. The EXIF data: f/2 | 1/125 | ISO 400. I always use spot mode, since it allows me to meter the light exactly where I want.

I cropped the picture a little to improve the framing and converted it to black and white. I think b/w works great in images with strong emotions and feelings.

I love the expression of the bride in this picture. I think it represents a moment and a feeling that every bride (and maybe every groom) has felt at her wedding day.

Wedding Photography, for me I suppose, is a search for magic. A game of hide and seek, with the prize, a brief second, framed and bound; the tethering of an instant; an essence of
