For the third entry of the 5 Day B & W Challenge I wanted to include this photograph of Jen, dancing with her Dad at her wedding in 2002.
This was a special wedding for me as Jen and Dan’s wedding was the first wedding that I photographed after leaving my newspaper staff job and I was so happy to have captured this photograph.
This was one of those situations where you just had a sense that there was going to be a photograph. The afternoon light was coming from the side and this image was made with the just the available light at the reception.
Just as Jen’s Dad dipped her during the dance, I waited until she was at the end of the dip before coming back up knowing that she would be most still in that position. The bit of blur added to the energy of the photograph and it’s still, after all these years, one of my favorite moments captured at a wedding.
