I asked my photographer for this but unfortunately she didn’t come through. 

Instead of the moment of the kiss I asked for it to be taken when we were presented and walking down the aisle. I told everyone about it and asked that no one take pictures so we could see everyone’s faces.

@mvg120:  That is the most perfect kiss picture I’ve ever seen!

If you are getting married at a church, this shot might not be possible.  Typically no one is allowed on that side except the clergy.

You would have to clear it with the official and plan it out with the photographer in advance.

You could try… depending on what the ceremony site looks like it could be distracting though.

Sounds obvious, but if you do this, clear it with your FH first. At my parents’ wedding the photographer kept creeping around the altar and my dad found it inappropriate, so he started frowning at the guy and shaking his head “no”… NOT what you want to see as a bride during the wedding! Haha!

@mvg120: aaah. okay, I have to come out of hiding. I TOOK THAT PHOTOGRAPH! (I am a wedding photographer though I’m just using Weddingbee to plan my own wedding) 

For this particular church, they were super, super chill. Normally in Catholic churches many of them do not let you back there. However, for this particular wedding, the priest * encouraged * me to step behind the couple because he said he was going to give the blessing from the aisle and that I can go for this shot. I remained pretty discreet (there’s an altar table separating the couple and I so most guests couldn’t see me), and I wouldn’t ever violate a church’s rules or be too obvious otherwise.

My moh did that at her wedding. You have to clear and plan it with the officiant, tell the parties involved and work out a signal for when it’s okay for the photographer to come up on the altar. Also it’s good if no one is shooting. She did two kisses. One normal and one from that angle

And that shot doesn’t look photoshopped. I photoshop for a living.

and to everyone else – it was not staged, photoshopped, or altered in any way. it was a truly real, and very romantic moment.

@melonseeds:  it looks like you fixed the wb, bumped the contrast, a little clarify, maybe added some black and sharpened. And I’m going to guess in LR

@Atlanticbride:  I did color correction and exposure fix, no clarify, and the sharpening is probably due to the image being a small size. I think some of the posts above implied that I photoshopped the moment… not sure what that means, but that is certainly not the case.

@melonseeds:  and its good to mention you didn’t before other photograohers start to get the ” can you just photoshop us a shot like that” request.
