Cairnwood Estate Wedding PhotographerCairnwood Estate in Bryn Athyn is one of my favorite Pennsylvania wedding venues. I love the light in the mansion and the beautiful architecture. I love how it feels like a private home, yet is large and spacious enough to hold large wedding receptions. At this 2013 Cairnwood wedding the bride and groom had their reception toasts in the large foyer room before moving outside for dinner and back inside for the dancing portion of the reception. I love how the lines in the staircase lead the viewer’s eye right to the bride and groom. I love the joyous expression on the bride’s face. And I especially adore the fantastic reaction on the groom’s face! I took this photograph with the Nikon 70-200mm lens because I wanted the compression of the subject off of the background. I also love the reception guests in the background because it helps give the image a sense of time and place.
