“His larger-than-life personality is infectious and heartwarming, and his smile will live long in my memory,” says Ash. “The back story here, though, is a fairly funny one that makes the image even more perfect and makes me smile every time I see it.”
As Ash tells it, during Kenny’s wedding to Abi in Montenegro, he spent some significant time with Kenny and so for the expected groom getting ready shots, he captured several shots of Kenny putting on his bow tie. “Kenny is a tall guy,” says Ash, “but I am not so tall, so the perspective of looking up at him as he put his bow tie on wasn’t good for photos. I noticed he stood near a sofa so I climbed on it to get high and get a more level perspective.”
During this time, Kenny was concentrating on adjusting his bow tie and starting to get a little nervous about the wedding. Ash says he didn’t notice that Kenny’s eyes were closed when he got in position because he was adjusting his settings and starting to capture some nice moments of Kenny concentrating.
“When he heard my shutter go off he opened his eyes and discovered he was staring right at my crotch, which made him react like this!”
Photographed with a Nikon D850 and 24mm f/1.4 at 1/200 of a sec., f/1.8 and ISO 100.
