This New York City modern bridal encapsulates the softness of romance and the boldness of editorial creating a magnificent balance. Highlighting features of both gowns, gloves and a lovely clutch to show brides how accessories and knowledgeable professionals can take a simple bridal session to the next level! The vision for this editorial was Paris meets New York in a fashion forward photoshoot to provide inspiration for the sophisticated and elegant bride. On a spring morning, we arrived at the New York Public Library which was an empty canvas awaiting our stunning bride and created stunning portraits befitting a fashion magazine. A gorgeous gown from Karen Sabag adorned with ruffles and a delicate ruched bodice of Swiss dot fabric and sheer sleeves is the ultimate gown for a bride wanting a timeless look with a signature hint of drama.
The marble stairs, columns, and fountain of the library were selected as the backdrop and we utilized the remarkable architecture to accentuate a classic European atmosphere. Our bride has a fairytale reminiscent moment as she descends the grand stairs of the portico and drapes herself over the steps in an iconic fashion dream. Enveloped in countless ruffles she moves gracefully through the majestic terrace as a vision in haute couture. -Esther Frederick Photography Photographer: Esther Frederick Photography
