The wedding dinner was held in the garden of a beautiful little castle in Emporda (Girona). The wedding dance was planned in the courtyard of the castle passing through the laser tunnel that the music & light staff had prepared. The photograph was shot as the couple entered the tunnel which was spectacular for all to see. We simply asked them to take a bit of time and enjoy playing with the laser light. I went after to shoot and waited for the right moment to find the perfect silhouette effect.

This is my favourite shot (awarded for ISPWP this year) with another of the couple embracing and kissing.

I talked with the DJ beforehand and I knew that the entrance to the castle courtyard across the laser tunnel would be a big surprise for the bride and groom so I made sure I was in place when the first dance was about to commence.

No special post processing. Processed in Lightroom using most of the original light you see in the picture.

When I was shooting this moment I knew it would be very special and spontaneous. The couple loved it and they loved it even more when this image won the Spanish (WedFotoSpain) and International Awards.

Shot using Nikon D4, Nikkon AF-S 35 f/1.4G, ISO 640, 1/80 and f/1.8
