Street life – Wedding belle

A bride and groom pose for photos by Tower Bridge and are captured in the light of a flash

I saw this bride and groom posing for wedding photos by Tower Bridge in the early evening. I only had my 50mm lens with me and I was quite far away. I wanted to capture them before they moved on. I waited for their photographer to use his flash and pressed my shutter at the same time to get them lit up in a spotlight. Had I had time to move around and frame the shot, I wouldn’t have put them smack bang in the middle of it. But I had to grab it while I could.

I particularly like the fact that I captured a man on his mobile phone and other people walking past – the mundane and everyday juxtaposed with the big occasion.
