The story behind the image
Whenever I shoot a wedding, I’ll try to capture as many details as possible. I want the couple to enjoy later what otherwise might get lost on their great day.
One example are the flowers that have been put together by friends and family to decorate the church. Sometimes, as in this example, it is really just a tiny add-on to a wooden bench to make the walk down the aisle easier and even more lovely. But after many years the couple will be able to enjoy that moment with all its countless details.
The wide aperture of f/2.8 has added a nice bokeh, nailing the focus on the red flower while blurring the other parts of the decoration gently. This can make even a small flower decoration look fabulous.
