A wedding is not only a ceremony, not only a party. A wedding is an intense, unique and personal story.

Asking a photographer to shoot your wedding is offering a part of your intimacy. That's why it is essential to construct a real bond between you and me. For this, I stay the entire day so that every moment of the day should find its place in the photographic story. I'll be your special reporter, at the heart of your wedding. My job consists of documenting your wedding, delivering you an artistic wedding photo report. Always there making myself invisible.

This photo was shot this summer at a wedding in south Burgundy, near Lyon France. During the outdoor ceremony, Marie, the bride, was listening to a speech from her parents. As you know, on this occasion things become very emotional. Her father was telling stories about the youth of Marie and how much he loves his daughter.

I came closer and started to watch Marie's reaction. Her eyes were starting to become wet. I knew she was deeply listening to her father and she wouldn't wipe the tear with her hand, that’s what I was hoping for ;)

With my macro lens, I started to shoot, hoping to catch the tear on her eye. I was quite close to her, maybe 2 meters, but she didn't even notice me, she was so overwhelmed with her emotions, nothing mattered in that moment apart from listening to her father. A few seconds later, the tear was falling.

Luckily I was with a second shooter who was shooting the audience reaction, especially Marie's sister who was crying too.

The shot was taken with a Nikon D4,Nikon 105mm Macro @ 1/640s f/3
