Portfolio Series #4 – The PunchJuly 20, 2012

The energy of a wedding day shifts after the grand entrance. Time to eat, drink and celebrate! After dessert is served and the speeches have concluded, the dancing begins. I have seen any number of bad-ass moves on the dance floor and often times have to get myself and my flash in there to capture some of this unbridled action. This image is actually hilarious. It’s not the act of violence that it at first appears. The lass in this shot was enacting some of the lyrics in the song, which entailed a punch or two.

She is wearing her beloved’s tie on her head and all the elements come together for what looks like a bar brawl. What is perfect about the composition of this shot is the fact that you eye goes right for the action and then over to the bystanders to try and make sense of what’s happened. I love this image for the lie it keeps telling of a fight on the dance floor that never happened.

In each wedding there are moments that tell a story, that are meaningful or just amazing for the simplicity of the moment that is captured. They are important moments; but may never find themselves included in a wedding magazine or blog, but to me it would be a shame if they were not shown. This is at the heart of my Wedding Portfolio Series. Through this series I will showcase some favorite moments captured by me on the wedding day.
