Ahhhh the Bride Walking Down the Stairs Shot, it's such an iconic one. It might be at her parents's house, at an Air Bnb or at a grand venue like this one. But it's always one of those big moment shots that as the photographer you can potentially deliver something really powerful. This image from Lydia Stamps sure does pack a punch. It's pure classical wedding photography that delivers on many levels.

The angle this is shot from gives us great context and frames her so nicely. The timing sees her stepping from the shadows and shows off that incredible dress so well. I love the tension in her arm and the sense that this is an isolated moment, that no other person is encroaching on it, even the photographer. Lydia has delivered a beautifully crafted image that is both dramatic and romantic. It's a glorious image.
