Best Wedding DetailsIn 2013, I terrified my assistant by doing something that I had never done before. We were in a synagogue in Manhattan's Upper East Side, walking around with the bride's dress and trying to find somewhere to hang it. I looked at all of the doorways, hallways, and low windows without finding anything that suited my needs. I clearly remember looking up at the massive windows in the synagogue and said to my assistant, "I wish I could figure a way to put the dress up there." Two minutes later, she was holding her breath while I climbed up into the balcony and reached out to hang the address in those very same windows. I am so glad that I took the chance to put the dress in an unexpected place, because that image quickly became my favorite dress picture of all time.

According to the official WPPI rules, this score means the image shows "Very good use of imagination, skill, and technique."

I was so exceedingly proud to have received this distinction, as it placed me into a level along with many photographers whose work I had admired for years.Keywords: Manhattan Penthouse (4), New York City (69), wppi (18).
