Best 100 Fearless Awards of 2023

My main inspiration for this photo was to turn a gray day at the beach into an opportunity to create a minimalist and timeless image. I conceived the idea of having the groom leap towards the camera to add dynamism to the photo, and I asked the bride to move slightly to create a motion effect in her hair. This approach added a touch of magic and spontaneity to the photo, transforming a static moment into a dynamic and engaging one. I wanted to focus on the connection between the bride and groom, as the flat light and dull colors of the day wouldn't have done justice to the beauty of the surrounding environment. Therefore, I chose to eliminate elements such as the beach horizon and water, which could have distracted from the essence of the moment and the love shared by the couple.
