Michael ONeill Wedding Portrait Fine Art Photographer Long Island New York
Garden City Hotel Wedding Photography
Another award-winning wedding photograph. This one garnered a Silver Award of Excellence in the annual WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) annual 16 X 20 Print, Album and Filmmaking Competition in Las Vegas, Nevada. This wedding picture was also used in a professional photography book authored by Bill Hurter, former editor of Rangefinder Magazine...the most prestigious professional photographic magazine in the wedding and portrait industry. This image was created as the bride and her bridesmaids were preparing for the wedding day. I had my photography assistant illuminate the bride with an off-camera tungsten video light while she put the finishing touches on her wedding dress and shoes. The girls were getting ready in a fabulous suite at The Garden City Hotel...a true world-class hotel located right here on Long Island. I’ve worked at some of the finest hotels that New York City has to offer: The Waldorf Astoria, The Plaza, The Pierre, The Ritz Carlton Battery Park, The Parklane and The Essex House. The Garden City Hotel is every bit as luxurious and elegant as any of those fine NYC establishments and it is located right here in my Long Island backyard.
