The few moments just after the bride and groom leave the ceremony are often the most special. Emotions are high and the couple is finally alone after being center stage. Sometimes, not as alone as they think, of course.
When I saw the ring bearer had snuck up on the couple I knew there was a great moment to be captured. I dropped to one knee and shot from his eye level, since we’re really seeing this scene through his point of view. Still, he’s in the shadows, almost as unnoticed by the viewer as by the newlyweds themselves. The couple “hiding” behind the bouquet only further emphasizes the idea that he’s peeking in on a beautiful, but private, moment.
