Cathy and Dave picked this as their favourite image:
“I love this photo because when I was thanking my Dad in my speech I was very emotional and didn’t have the guts to look at him. However his reaction to what I was saying was important to me and I would have never seen it had this photo never captured it…thanks Mike.”
My favourite image from their wedding was the result of a bunch of things that all came together in just the right way.
First, I was scheduled to be with them for the reception, which meant that I would be with them at dusk. Second, they had a room at the Weston (beside the Congress Centre where their reception was) with a huge balcony overlooking the city. Third, it rained for their wedding day, which resulted in wet streets, which then resulted in nice reflections from the city lights. Finally, and most importantly, Cathy and Dave trusted me, so that when I told them I could make a killer shot if we ducked out for a few minutes during the reception, they went for it.
This is the result:
