There are a lot of benefits to getting ready at the Double Tree in downtown Binghamton. There is generally plenty room for you and your entire party, and the light is gorgeous streaming through the windows.
With a lot of emotion running high during the day and especially after the dress is on, we like to take a few moments alone with the just the bride and shoot some portraits. It gives the bride a chance to soak in a moment on her own, gather some peace, and be photographed at her best for who knows what the rest of the day may bring: tears, sweat, rain, etc.
In this case, I kicked everyone out, plopped the bride on the floor, had her close her eyes and take a deep breath in some gorgeous light.
