one moment – Omni Homestead Weddings – with Tina and Monte Durham from “Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta”

Tina had no idea that “Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta” host Monte Durham would surprise her when she put on her wedding dress this summer day.  She was told her husband-to-be, Adam, was sending her a gift. She immediately became concerned and said, “We agreed not to get each other a gift.  I didn’t get him anything.” I reassured her that it was something small and not to worry. We had her cover her eyes while we brought Mr. Durham into the room.  The is her reaction. She is such a big fan of the show and was absolutely thrilled to have that experience.

I love layering images.  In this case, I got in between all of the groomsmen with a telephoto lens and tried to capture the intense expression of the bride gazing into the grooms eyes during the wedding ceremony.  Her look is so powerful and it’s enhanced even more by framing her within the men in the foreground.
