Fonthill Castle Wedding PhotographerFonthill Castle is a marvelous wedding venue. The Mercer Museum is gorgeous and Fonthill is a hidden Pennsylvania gem. I love the indoor parts of the Museum but I was also entranced by the wooded areas. It was a gorgeous day for this 2013 wedding and the bride, a wedding photographer herself, was willing to brave the woods for some portraits. Before adding the groom to the portrait session I took some time to photograph the bride alone. I positioned her right in the beautiful light and wrapped her in her bridal veil. I love the dramatic nature of the pose and the bride really relaxed into it and enjoyed the session. I shot this picture with the Nikon 70-200mm lens at 200mm to compress the bride off of the background. I love the look of the lens compression in this final shot! It gives a great, intimate feeling to the background.
