This image was made while photographing the family groups for the bride and groom. We were in between groups and as I was gathering another family for the next shot, I noticed the little flower girls having fun with the bride. My assistant still had the off-camera flash, which was shooting through an umbrella pointing in the general direction of the bride and the two girls. It was just enough light to get the shot. At first glace, I didn't think I had much going on, but after tighter cropping and some "stylizing" of the image in Photoshop, I loved the result of those little angels with the bride. As I've mentioned many times, we as professional wedding photographers need to have a sixth sense on the wedding day and be aware of what is not only happening in front of the camera but also behind us and to the sides of us. Camera specs; Nikon D1x fitted with a Tamron 24-135mm lens at 48mm, F5.6 @ 1/60 second, ISO 400. Enjoy! -David
