I made this image a few years ago when I was shooting Nikon cameras. The client flew my team to New York to photograph the wedding at the Ritz Carlton at Battery Park. It was a magnificent event from start to finish. This image was made before the wedding ceremony, just an easy image of the bride by herself on the stairway of the Ritz Carlton. The window light supplied the perfect illumination for the image. The leading lines of the location lead the viewers eyes directly to the subject at the bottom of the composition. The lighting, location, composition, color and great expression made for a beautiful wedding image. Camera specs; Nikon D1x fitted with 18-35mm lens at 31mm, F4.5 @ 1/125 second, ISO 400.
