[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Martin and Sophie are colleagues of mine in Canada. Sophie asked if I would take some pictures of them because they never had any photos taken 10 years ago when they got married and she has always regretted it. I shot a series for them and they were both very pleased. Sophie said their two daughters would be really happy with this one so she is going to frame it and put it up in their home.

Sometimes we take for granted how important out photographs are to the people we interact with. It was nice to help out these two very sweet people.

Hi, Roger -
Thanks for the touching note. One can easily see from the image the warmth and chemistry between them -- a very genuine sweetness in their expressions. The b&w gives it a classic feel that I'm sure they will appreciate in years to come. Sharp where it should be. Well done.

Hi Roger:
An excellent pose with natural style & feel...
the B&W treatment is just right in tonal range...
Super composition and DOF...
you gave them something very beautiful!!

Even there are some interesting painful/sad photos in this site, I prefer to look at the "happy" photos, like this one. And even I prefer color photos, I like, very much, this B&W. Great pose, perfect facial expressions, excellent composition of a beautiful couple. TFS


hello Roger,
This is a very intimate shot of a happy couple. A classic in B/W and very nicely done. Your friends will treasure these shots. Joni
