Sometimes a scene unfolds right before your very eyes that has such whimsy and humor, that as a photographer you just have to thank the photo gods and shoot away.
I often hear brides say that they sometimes feel engulfed by the whole wedding planning process. To me, this photograph, in which the bride appears to be in the process of being swallowed by her gown, serves as metaphor for that feeling. It was one of my favorite photographs from this past wedding season.
Luckily, the judges at the WPPI 16×20 Print Competition liked it too! We were awarded a 2010 Award of Excellence for this image.
The competition was comprised of 3,388 prints in 18 different categories submitted by photographers from all over the world. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have won!
