While weddings are clearly events that centre around the bride and groom, one of the things I like best about them is that they're also comprised of a myriad of small but wonderful moments like this one.

great capture, I need to get a 70-200 for those close up moments...

Dan: I pretty much shoot with just two lenses at weddings: the 24-70L f/2.8 and the 70-200L f/2.8. The first is probably the one I use most, but it's not much use for shots like this, at least not unless the people are totally oblivious to your presence.

Moments indeed. This is certainly an excellent example of the moment capture. Such a feel good expression there.

I'm really enjoying these wedding shots and the not-so-heavy post-production you made

How do you quickly change your lens from wide angle to zoom? do you wear your lenses and keep the caps off?

David -- you have such a wonderful way of capturing the moment.

I hope the couple has a lifetime of these moments. Great capture.

David, shots like this are wonderful at illustrating your wide range of photographic skill.

I regularly shoot weddings all year, and I'd be elated to get a shot like this. Great work!

LOVE this! I wish I had a shot of my husband looking at me like this. :)
