A Keepsake Performance

A favorite spot to take wedding pictures is the Angela Peralta Teatro by the Plaza Machado. I've seen many musical performances in that building, but this is a different kind of performance--a record of which will udoubtedly be treasured for years. ADDED LATER: Thanks for the flattering comments; no, I was not the official photographer. I just took advantage of the fact that they were having their photos taken and snapped away!

What a good-looking couple. Personally I enjoy weddings and always want to applaud at the end of the ceremony ... Your photo is very good. I especially like that they are not looking into the camera. It is as if they are looking toward their future.

Kate - thanks for your comments today. I think how far you can stick your lens into wedding parties depends on the circumstances. This group was all looking at me (I was some distance away) but no one objected. Several months ago I posted a close up of a very boozy bridesmaid in the arms of a big groomsman in front of the cathedral. They didn't care. There are a few pix in my China set on Flickr of B & Gs in from of the Catholic cathedral in Beijing. It's a busy place and no one expects much privacy in China.

Your picture is a terrific portrait. The couple should buy this from you. The bride could not be more elegant. (Could she have done better?)
