Bride steps out of car at Space Needle in Seattle

You can see the base of the Space Needle reflected in the bride's parents' car, as they climb out for the valet to park so they can get to the wedding ceremony at next-door Chihuly Garden and Glass. The sun was low in the sky in the same direction as I needed to photograph the bride, which caused those cool sun flares, and also required me to fire my camera-mounted Speedlite to prevent the bride from being lost in shadows. It's the same lighting as a paparazzi would use, giving the scene a bit of a red-carpet entrance feel. The man holding the valet ticket at the far right couldn't be more perfectly placed as if I had done it myself!
