Only one vote below 5 and a whopper of a commenter average! Most importantly, though, is an amazing, perfect fairy tale picture. It simply could not be any better. A wonderful gift to the couple!

Beautiful bw tones and love the expressions. (voted earlier)

Perfect. I'm guessing this might be Simms' work. If not, take that as a compliment.

Beautifully composed. Everything about the occasion fills the frame to the brim.

the b/w toning is great, shadows aren't too dark, highlight aren't blown out. the dress is distracting a bit but im not going to knock off points for such a great picture. 9

Gorgeous tones and texture in here! I love how her shoe just peeks through that crazy dress to help ground her. One of my top votes.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Her hair on her RIGHT (Our left) side emphasizes her cheekbone, making it look skeleton-ish.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/04/2011 03:23:58 PM
Magnificently detailed image, in part due to the expert lighting and no doubt a deft hand at PP. A FS 8.

I generally vote down wedding pictures in any challenge because they to me tend to feel like an entry of opportunity, and not something that was shot specifically for the challenge. That being said, I'd of probably given you the ten I'm giving you now even if you entered this in a micro challenge.

beautiful looking couple, I really like this portrait, using the texture of the brick wall against the silky appearance of their clothes, this works really well
