Frankly, I would have never thought to make or even look for this picture. Instead of making the wide uninteresting picture of the bride and groom from the side, the photographer used the mirror. Good thinking.
The use of the mirror adds just one more piece of information to this elegant photograph. It does not hit you over the head as a cliche which many mirror photographs turn out to be. Every photographer has had that feeling--"Gosh, I wish I hadn't made that picture. Photo gods please forgive me."
Interesting and bold composition.
Assuming the graduation portrait on the wall is of this bride, it makes you wonder what she's thinking as she enters another new chapter in her life. Being in frames in opposite corners of the photo with all the negative space between creates a feeling of distance from her past. Very nice.
This images is filled with repeating patterns and lines (the dock, railing, deck, windows, shadows on the floor). The bride is reflected in an entirely different, more colorful scene with yet more repeating patterns and lines.
