Westbury Manor Wedding PhotographerThis wedding photograph was taken during a ceremony at Westbury Manor in Westbury, New York. The father of the bride had just walked his daughter down the aisle and was shaking the hand of his new son in law. I love moments like this at the beginning of a wedding ceremony because it allows me to truly document the love the father has for his daughter and his new son. Westbury is a fantastic location for an outdoor wedding because the courtyard provides privacy from the busy Jericho Turnpike,beautiful light, and gorgeous greenery. I am very strongly drawn to a documentary style of wedding photography and there is no place more powerful to capture pure emotions than during the wedding ceremony. I loved it in this photograph you get a strong sense of emotion from all three of the primary subjects in the image. I also love the beautiful light on the face of the father of the bride as well as the gorgeous halo of light filtering through the brides veil.
