When shooting wedding ceremony definition shots, as the bride and her father go down the aisle, there is always the opportunity to capture the first look that the groom has of his bride. It is a look that will most likely never be replicated.

Using a long lens, I changed to point-focus mode, so I could focus through the gap that was offered to me.
