Decisive moment – Image of the week 11 – Philip Thomas

May 9, 2020 / Image of the week

I love what I do for a living. For over 25 years, I've been fascinated with the 'Decisive Moment.' My style of photography is primarily based on this concept and what I look for to tell a story i...

I love images that look seemingly simple, and yet this shot was challenging to capture. The focus is on Alison, our beautiful bride, and her father during their joyous first dance. But I’m always looking for more, and I love multi-layering my images and tell the story in the most profound way possible. The challenge is to capture these moments in real-time with interactions from the photographer. If I can do this in one shot, then this is a good example. My back was up against the reception wall when capturing these. At first, the flower girls noticed me but eventually placed their attention back toward the subjects.
