I love this couple’s expression, informally held bouquet and carefree veil blowing in the wind. Ana selected a fast aperture (2.8) to blur out the background which makes the cars less distracting. This separates the subjects from the background. Also, I applaud Ana for utilizing the Dutch tilt. She used the landscape to create diagonal lines resulting in a much more dramatic composition. Ana also coaxed the bride and groom into two perfect profiles. Job well done Ana!
