Russian Wedding Photography

This is a shot of the happy bride from the wedding I gatecrashed in Russia. It was happening at our hotel and the photographer they had was just not filling me with confidence watching him work. So, I took it upon myself to try to get a message to the couple that they could have a few free photos. No one spoke English so I was using Google translate on my iPhone to the hotel waiter who I then saw walk into the wedding party, everyone gathered around then i saw a smile and a nod from the couple to him. Showtime!!

I had to work quick as they had a tight schedule but I managed to pull them aside for 10 mins and I shot this just around the corner with the evening sun behind and flaring into the lens and the groom holding my reflector as fill. It's always nice when people ask you to level on your watermark! I love my job! :)
