on 10/14/2008 7:36:38 PM Well, if this is your first wedding coverage, I'd say you have a brilliant future ahead of you Jeffrey! This caught my eye immediately - excellent, light, beautiful glow and fantastic storytelling. Looks like they hired the right guy to me!!

on 10/14/2008 7:51:28 PM Beautiful shot, Jeffery! I think you are off to a wonderful career in Wedding Photography! I love this one! I agree with Michelle, great light and nice story telling! I like the dark baskets against the girls white dresses, nice contrast. I have never seen dark baskets at a wedding, most of the time they are white.

Karen E. Baumann 10/15/2008 7:29:43 AM

Very nicely presented, Jeffrey! I especially like the lighting and expression on the little boy. I wonder what it would look like to crop for an image of just him with a little of the tree? I do like the full frame story, yes, indeed! #6602832

Wonderful image Jeffrey. I just know the folks who were married love this.
Other people's wedding photos are fairly boring for those of us not involved with the families but this is so much more than just a portrait. I am sure I have said this before about your images but it's worth repeating. It is possible for the viewer to use their imagination and read interesting stories into your images and the way you have posed these kids is superb!!
