Bride Tossing bouquet in the air with Joy at City Hall

Action Wedding Photography

When I first created this image, I was excited about the idea of this kind of action shot.  We can't always find a bride willing to throw her bouquet up in the air because of the risk of ruining it.  This bride was more than willing so after her San Francisco city hall wedding we went out to the front of the building to create this image.  The only problem with the first try at this photo is that I felt that bouquet kind of got lost in the details and background.  To fix this problem I thought it would be fun to make the image black and white, but keep the flowers in full color.  As you can see from the image above, it worked!
