A weekly series where I ask some of the world’s best wedding photographers to pick out their favourite shot from their Jewish wedding portfolio. This week it’s the turn of Matt Parry.
‘Energy’ by Matt Parry
The only way to truly capture weddings is to get right in the thick of the action. One of the true innovators of photography Robert Capa once said “If your pictures aren’t good enough, you’re not close enough.”
I love this shot. I love the dance floor at all Jewish weddings. OK I may take the odd elbow/chair leg to the face but its so worth it to get right up close and capture that sense of energy and happiness. Sometimes the energy and movement within images can be subtle (a moment just before a kiss) ….and sometimes it can be in your face obvious (a flying groom just before he collides with your camera lens).”
