I assume that this was a "Before" or "after" shot, or is he just the most laid back dressed groom ever??!!

@CElliottUK: He IS a pretty laid back kind of guy, but this was AFTER the wedding. My camera was in the car during the wedding ! :-(

I love this image......and your work in black and white which has always impressed me. Those glasses are great and the beard and the shirt and the powerful pose and the light coming across his face from the right. Wonderful !

Wendy at the shore, USA from United States

Hey, what gives with the outfit? She outdid him for sure...probably before or after, eh? He is very stunning in b/w usually not my fav. Contrasts of circles and rounds in his head and the stripes and checks below are contrasts I feel speak to me...not sure how.
