I love watching the almost-newlyweds in the moments leading up to their first look or their ceremony. The anticipation, the preparation, the nerves...I love documenting it all. Whether you're getting ready surrounded by dozens of your best friends, or getting ready in a quieter setting is more your style, I would love to be the wedding photographer to capture these moments for you.
At this 2012 wedding at the Pearl River Hilton in Pearl River, New York, we had gorgeous light in the suite where the bride got married.
I truly can’t decide what is my favorite thing about this wedding picture. Perhaps it’s the fantastic look on the bride’s face? Perhaps it’s the wonderful reaction from her bridesmaid? Perhaps it’s the great expression on her mother’s face?
All three of these totally genuine reactions are unscripted and unprompted, which is just the way I like wedding day moments! I also love the bride’s gorgeous Oscar de la Renta wedding dress, a dress I’ve admired since the first time I saw it a year prior. It’s a luscious lace dress with a pale, pale blue undertone and is truly a work of art.
