Malaysia-based wedding photographer Mohd Syafiq Firdaus Mohd Sayuti (he goes by Syafiq) captured this bride on her wedding day in the city of Putrajaya. This portrait was taken after the ceremony in gorgeous afternoon light. "Everything was on point," the photographer says of the moment.

The bride was a little shy at first, but after Syafiq spent some time talking to her, she relaxed and opened up. For this shot, he posed her in a way that's reflective of his style—elegant and simple. The final frame came out better than he had hoped, he says. "I love how everything came together—the emotion, the lighting and the symmetrical hallway."
