Together with Cole Roberts, I run Nordica Photography. We're based out of Sweden and do weddings all over the world. We focus on telling the stories as they are, without staging or faking moments. We're passionate about storytelling and do our best to apply this to our wedding photography.

This was a very unplanned shot. We were doing some portraits with the bride and groom after the ceremony, and just as we were wrapping things up and started walking away, this happened. I basically just shot as fast as possible, focusing on the cows with a wide open shutter at 1.4. It all happened very fast, and shows the importance of being aware of what happens around you.

Not difficulties really, but a bit of luck in that the pole was in the perfect condition. I shot many frames, but this was the one that stood out. It all went by so quick, there was no time to change positions or think too much about composition. It was all a reflex, more or less.

I used a Nikon D700 metering manually. Nikon 50mm/1.4, shot wide open. The decision to shoot wide open was to draw attention to the interesting part, the cows, keeping the bride and groom blurry in the foreground.

Conversion was to black and white using a Photoshop preset from Red Leaf Actions.

I think everyone had a good laugh in the end with this shot.
