Pearl River Hilton Wedding Photographer

The getting ready part of a wedding day is one of my favorite parts. I love watching the bride prepare surrounded by her nearest and dearest girlfriends and family. At this 2012 wedding at the Pearl River Hilton in Pearl River, New York, we had gorgeous light in the bridal suite. 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.
