On Friday I received notification that this image won 13th place internationally on the Wedding Photjournalist Association contest. It was a totally random moment of one of the groomsmen jumping in the air. Weddings are full of unexpected moments that are usually more worthy of photographing than all of the set up ones. Those are the priceless moments that cannot be recreated. I did not set up this shot. We were all just walking towards the water to do some portraits, when I looked back and saw awesome lighting, everyone giggling and having fun. I observed the interactions going on and I anticipated that something was about to happen. Being ready for priceless moments is what has helped me stand out from competition.
