Digital film signature: Kodak Tri-800 Pushed 2 stops
I love this shot period!
I've always found it fun to do the post editing from a wedding shoot. This shot had one key element that I love. I wanted more from the shot. It certainly is exciting to be a digital wedding photojournalist in this century with photo editing tools at my disposal. I love the bride's smile yet I wanted more contrast in the shot. Here comes creative destruction to add the blur and the grains to give that needed contrast to let her smile shine through.
The smile before (or after?) the kiss? Your call.
