    Some fluky shots are worth keeping. I was setting up the light as we've just moved location, while I was pointing the camera at my girlfriend/boss to meter for the background, the bride walked into frame to do a photo bomb. *snap* :shock:

    Here's the straight out of camera and post processed copy, this ended being my favourite shot of the year and happy to admit that it was nothing but a fluke :)

    I'm a terrible candid/photo journalistic photographer. If a client mention that she likes photo journalistic style I would run a million mile :). Most of the time the scene is created, even if it look candid.

    Post processing was pretty simple. Crop the until the house is not in the frame :). The two poles are easily cloned out. Rest is just custom curve and a bit of dodging in the dress, 5-10 minute job.
