I shot the above photo during the couple first dance, my equipment was a Canon 5d mark III with a canon 24-105 zoom lens and off camera canon 580exII flash with a beauty dish on.
I notice the bride shiny eye looking at the groom and I know this was the moment, I check if my lighting assistant was in the right place change my camera to high speed continues shooting and manage to take series of 8 images us the bride was ripping of his shirt.
Without even think about it I instantly change the image to black and white, a little retouching dodge and burn with photoshop and the image was ready for the couple, definitely the best reward was when they call me a couple months later and they say that cry looking at the photos, , moments like this make you think that this is the best job in the world.
