Pearl River Hilton Wedding Photographers

I love it when the schedule on a wedding day allows for great time to make portraits of the bride and groom. At this wedding at the Pearl River Hilton in 2012 I had ample time to photograph the bride alone before the bride and groom saw each other for the first time. I wanted to show off the bride’s gorgeous face, her impeccable makeup, perfect veil, and outstanding Oscar de la Renta wedding dress. I love the light that falls across her face and I love the texture of her veil and gown. This photo was taken with my 85mm f/1.4 at f/1.4 and I love the look of this lens at this f-stop. Nikon makes such deliciously sharp, quick lenses and it’s always a delight to shoot them - especially in such a gorgeous setting!
