The wedding day was totally brilliant. Sunshine on the banks of River Thames and a beautiful location with beautiful people.
This shot is from the Reception dance party and one of groom’s friend is hugging him and his other friends around them helped to create a great scene. It was an animated moment and quite a challenge to keep the shot focused and the composition of the image.
I was taking pictures of the dance during the reception and saw one of the friends going to hug the groom. I turned and saw other friends were surrounding them too and wanted to get them all perfectly into the frame. I composed the image to get these layers, I also wanted to include the girl laughing and having fun. I think it works really well and there are lots of things happening in this image but you are also drawn to the groom and his friend hugging.
I shot this using a Nikon D750, ISO 2000, 1/200, F4.5 and I spot metered on the grooms friend. The I converted it to black and white and performed some basic dodging and burning to make the image pop.
I love this shot but the best thing about it is the bride and groom do too.
