Wedding moments contd.

Caught this moment as the groom was doing his thing. What really made this shot for me was the 2 ladies cheezing in the background. I have been doing lots of studio and wedding photography lately and I am really begining to miss my street/candid photography :)

All laughter and fun aside, Dotun, I find it very tender that the groom is "doing his thing" discretely under his scarf/stoll. That's very touching to me.
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Ginnie, I had a lot of fun shooting this wedding.

That thing he is doing seems to please her a lot! Great picture with a nice fun element in it.

It always remain a mystery to me why women enjoy weddings so much (not that men don't like a party). Their behaviour is so obviously different from other social events. They speak of the greatest day of her life - so what about the rest when she is married - the obvious goal of the day - not so great? The wedding surely has something magic about it. Great opportunity for candid shots as well and you have shown us a lot. Maybe you should see them as the stand-in for street shots?
Dotun Ayodeji: Thats another way to see it, thanks Louis.

A lot of joice and complicity here... Very well done !
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Roland.
I think Louis has a good point (and at least you are being paid(I assume) for these as well). You have timed/spotted this so well, and you could probably crop just the 3 girls expressions on their own, to add mystery ...
moment frozen.

i love everyone's facial expressions, A real moment captured here
Wow! Dotun, really you have captured a little while incredible. It seems putting by the position of the girl of enmedioun as much forced. But in any case a scene very amused. Best pic! smile
Good shot. You seem to record a beautiful/fun moment.
This my friend is a fantastic shot... I'm not a fan of posed wedding shots, sadly I to have to take them once in awhile....this ROCKS!

Great moment. Just a *tad* too much tilt but it captures the faces in the bg so I'll forgive you. wink
Dotun Ayodeji: Thanks Collins, the tilt is very debatable.
