    While I was shooting a wedding ceremony I couldn’t help but wait for such a perfect moment where the man took his place right in the middle of the frame, almost all eyes looking at him including the ones in the paintings behind him.

    I love that this isn't just a portrait of this man leading the prayer, but a portrait of an entire wedding ceremony being watched over by other portraits. I see a portrait of community, history and tradition coming together under one roof. Nicely done!
