My favorite moments in life I'd say hands down are the moments that I wasn't aware of until I stumbled right into them. As a photographer it's equally rewarding to stumble into a scene and react through the viewfinder.
This image unfolded as I was directing and positioning the families for the formal segment of the wedding day. I had just dismissed one side of the family and was in the middle of aligning the next group when I look over my right shoulder to see these two sharing an unbridled, free-spirited moment (pun intended). Don't you want to be these children again?? To have so much pleasure in the simplest of things, and the freedom to express yourself in them.
I turned fast, knocked out three shots, and found this the most compelling of the series. I converted the image to B&W in photoshop and added a vignette to give a frame and sense of boundary to the image. What I've loved most this season is having completely alerted my shooting style and the tools I use. I only carry two lenses with me now; 35mm f1.4 and a 85mm f1.2. This image was shot with the 85mm @ f2.5.
