This is a very popular photograph that I captured of the bride laying down atop her dress as I photographed her from above as I hung over the stairwell. This photograph was actually first conceived as a joke that honored my friend and mentor Jerry Ghionis. One of his favorite and well-known photographs features an image taken from above and so I decided to compose something similar is a joke that I could send to him later. I certainly had in mind that the bride would also enjoy the photograph, but my original intent was to copy Jerry's work as a joke. I'm just glad it turned out so well and was so popular with both the bride and this venue. Ambassador Mansions and Gardens is located in Pasadena, California.
