This newly-wed couple were having their wedding photos taken when they decided that it was a great idea for the bride to pose with a shovel…
Image taken in Lavra Pecherska monastery complex.

That is certainly a great idea! An all bright high key view with wide smile is just lovely.
Also technically excellent shot With short focus and some motion blur separating her well from background.

I took several wedding pictures in Odessa, but nothing even remotely similar to this. This is a great shot, funny and beautiful and with a very good title.

I'm always drawn to informal portraits. Often it's street photography; here it's a funny wedding moment. I assume you weren't the "official" photographer, but you've caught a nice moment, when the bride looks natural and happy. And probably cold. I think I'd have framed her slightly to the right so that she had space to throw the snow into!

une superbe idée, la jeune mariée est bien mise en scène, dans ce décor tout de blanc.

jolie et originale prise vue de cette jeune mariée souriante sur la neige

I love informal and street photos and this has it besides the wide smile of the bride
Like also the soft tones and the blurred background
Beautiful vertical format
Greetings and congrats

I think we could view 1000 photos here on TE, and not even 1 would be exactly like this one.
what a great subject, very unique, a great surprise.
all the colors seem to match too.
well spotted and chosen.

Witaj Kasiu, oryginalny pomysl na sesje zdjeciowa po slubie. Zeby tylko sie panna mloda nie zaziebila przy tej robocie. Ciekawa scenka z pieczerskiej Lawry. Bardzo ladne zdjecie, ucmich ma czarujacy i typowa urode Ukrainki. Mialas okaxje zobaczyc ceremonie slubna w cerkwi? Llubie atmosfere kosciolow prawoslawnych.

Great capture of a seemingly spontaneous moment. Although you may not have been the wedding photographer, you could have passed this one off as such. Great depth of field and exposure so as not fuse the white on white color scheme, it shows a good balance and differential. Thanks for sharing, and best wishes for 2013!

fantastyczna scenka mlodej panny z szufla w rekach odsniezajac snieg. Chyba jest bardzo odporna na mrozy. Mnie chyba by pokrecilo z zimna. Fantastyczna scenka i bardzo zabawna. Gratulacje. Super zdjecie.

top marks for this wonderfully original and beautiful image. Not easy to get the light and whites to stand out so perfectly as you have mananged here. Stunning!

kasia hello,well what the heck,this caught my eye,strange but nice,beautifull girl on her day,nice buildings in BG! dr
notrap (6163) 2013-01-08 8:57
a very pleasing tone-in-tone picture! Pretty smile and pretty girl! Maybe the bride began to work because she wanted to warm up a bit, you can´t stand the cold if you don´t move!
rychem (39375) 2013-01-08 10:41
A to Ci scenka! Pierwszy raz widzę taką, gratulacje
ourania (48706) 2013-01-08 13:40
the brave bride offered a warm smile and a lovely scene in the snowy square. She stands out superbly against the wonderful background that in its turn graces her photograph. Depth and clarity are impressive and lighting handled very effectively resulting in a delightful winter atmosphere and an amazing range of whites, luminous or subdued. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
ACL1978 (7511) 2013-01-08 14:27
Great opportunity you took advantage of here, Kasia - not often you seen the bride doing manual labor before the ceremony! Filling the screen with white shades like this works nicely, and accentuates those places - like the bride herself or the trim on the monastery - that are golden or tan. Nice DOF as well.
yquem46 (38752) 2013-01-08 14:33
Very original wedding shot
Exposure perfectly managed, despite all this white all over the place
Excellent eyes to spot the photogenic potential of the situation
Have a nice evening

niezwykla scena, fajnie uchwycona i tu zaprezentowana. Jak widac, zimy na Wschodzie nie straszne mieszkancom, panna mloda wziela sie do roboty.

What a superb and original wedding shot. It looks as the bride had great fun in this one. I just love it when people are sponateous and show a good sense of humor like this.
The colors, all different whites, are gorgeous and the overal result is a truly great photo.
I am sure the couple will hold this one in high esteem troughout their lives.

Ciao Kasia, fun and lovely composition, really an original wedding photo, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
saxo042 (37908) 2013-01-09 6:23
A very good picture in the humorous category! It is also a well captured scene with an excellent colour scale, soft and pleasant. Marvellous!

This is a very funny shot. I love it, it made me laugh and that is an accomplishment :)
Good quality shot too and a great moment, serious event with a spontaneous and commical situation.

Hi dear Kasia
An impressive image by best framework and composition.
Bride's happy smile even though hard waork si very very wonderful to see. White unified image in total is very moody. Thanks a lot and have a great Friday night!

Robert1969 (7160) 2013-01-16 9:52
Five minutes clearing snow and you have it warm:-).
It's certainly a great idea and it's original,
about fifty years, the people will still talk
about it. Quality is also great.
karacabeylis (1465) 2013-01-19 8:10
a great harmony on whiteness. well-done indeed.

Kasia, è una immagine simpaticissima, molto rara, in più è stata resa con grandissima bravura, l'equilibrio dei colori aggiunge interesse a questa foto stupenda! Congratulations!
ninaL (21348) 2013-02-08 14:33
To jest naprawde oryginalne : panna mloda odgarniajaca snieg pod palacem !

die Arbeit einer jungen Braut! Mir gefällt dein Foto sehr, danke fürs schauen.
drt100 (2095) 2013-07-21 11:58
What a fun and lovely picture. Indeed the weather is cold and the work tough ... yet young love is a wonderful thing. She looks so happy. I would guess about two shovels and she was done .... Without the photos comments one might think she had been at it all day. A very cute catch. Great vantage point without interruption of the activity. Good color contrast with the shape of the cleared path behind. CUTE

Hello my dear friend
great idea of taking a photo this
newly wed couple
its the first time I see a shot
like this one
have a nice time
finlay (1573) 2014-07-28 2:03
Very original shot with a nice touch of humour. It's the one that would stand out in the wedding album. Not easy to get the exposure right with such a white background but you achieved it here.
miumiu (6113) 2014-07-31 1:46
This is a great capture!
The moment, POV and colours are superb! l like it!
l have checked your gallery on Redbubble too. You take amazing photos!
l made wedding dresses in the past, so l had to check this photo. l love this dress! Very simple, nothing special sparkling on it, there is a corset top. Simple wonderful!
daddo (27264) 2014-08-17 1:30
I didn't get to see this amazing photo of the bride at work, or so it seemed at first. I thought the in-laws were testing her endurance.Seriously, Kasia, if one has moments of serendipity, one takes advantage. Elegant woman, lovely smile and all that whiteness!Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.
Noel_Byrne (32512) 2015-01-17 8:10
It was a great idea to strike this pose, it makes a very interesting and very humorous image, one that I would guess stands out well in their album. The look of joy on this beautiful girls face is wonderful, and her smile is very infections. This is so far from an everyday scene, and it works wonderfully well. Congratulations on being there to capture it.
have a great weekend
Karolina999 (0) 2015-12-01 5:29
dla mnie bomba, strach się bać takiej energicznej panny młodej, rewelacyjnie sympatyczne zdjęcie.
Thanx for sharing.
ikeharel (74733) 2016-03-08 8:46
At least she was smiling, even at such cold, Kasia.
A beautiful moment caught, and well done balanced the different tones in white.
My best regards,
Royaldevon (40988) 2016-04-05 3:20
I was just browsing the archives and came across one of yours.
It's easy to miss splendid shots but I'm so glad I happened upon this one!
The title is so apt and helped to add both humour and anticipation to your splendid photograph.
This must be a unique shot!
You have used the shallow dof to perfection, focusing on the bride but adding so much extra information from the oof b/g.
Have a great day,
batalay (39519) 2016-12-03 9:07
This photo came up in the random order you've selected for your photos on your profile page. Shot in 2010, posted in 2013 and a welcome addition to my gallery of "favorites" in 2016. "White Wedding" or "White on White," by any other name is still a rose. I fear, if I am not more selective, I could fill my entire allowance of favorites with photos you've taken. If you get a chance, take a look at some of my earlier selection of favorites. There are some beauties by Trekkies who appeared and disappeared, like this one: "World of Tomorrow."
