My personal thoughts on reportage wedding photography: it is not all about the machine gun approach i.e blasting away with the shutter in the hope that one image will work; it is about knowing your client, the wedding, weddings in general and watching out for body language that will herald the next event, look or expression.

Sometimes akin to photographing a rugby or football match when again body language will let you know what is about to happen next.

If you try to photograph the moment as it has happened it has already gone.

Very many thanks to you all for the votes, comments and awards for this image.

A very nice shot indeed. It is the look on the bridesmaid's face adjacent to the bride that caught my eye (even before I opened the full view) that makes the photo for me - but would it make the album for that reason! Only a moment but a telling one, or not? Who knows but a very good photograph. Chris

This is a very nice shot deserving of an award for the expression and pose of the bride. However, look at the upper left, and there are random square blocks. These are Jpeg artifacts. They dont need to ne here at all.
