A Glance

Wedding Photojournalism is about capturing moments. Particularly it’s about capturing moments that others don’t see.

To photograph this moment, I carefully positioned myself behind the groomsmen. (When I shoot weddings I wear black, so I blended in nicely with the groomsmen’s black suits.)

After finding my position, I zoomed in closely with a long lens, “stealing” this image without anyone realizing I was even there.

Notice how the groom’s face (and, therefore, his eyes) is facing straight on, toward the minister. The groom doesn’t even know his bride looked at him in this way; that is, until he saw this image.

The bride’s sister — her matron of honor — is in the background, adding another layer of meaning to this candid moment.
