While on a photo expedition in western Mongolia, Your Shot member Dimitar Karanikolov had the opportunity to photograph a traditional Kazakh wedding celebration taking place in Altai Tavan Bogd National Park. “Great environmental portrait,” says National Geographic photography producer Jeanne Modderman. “I’ve learned so much about the people and the place just by looking at this photo.”

Karanikolov’s shot was recently featured in the Daily Dozen.
