I’m so excited to share with you my first wedding in NYC! I absolutely loved shooting here - the textures, the light, the colors - all so much fun to work with! It doesn’t hurt when you have a gorgeous bride & groom to shoot - either.
Just a couple days before Christmas, I photographed the wedding of John & Angela in Manhattan. It was a lovely afternoon (quite warm compared to how cold it is today) just perfect for some shots outside, so we met up right before sunset on the High Line. The backdrops were just spectacular - sunset on the Hudson River, the Empire State Building lit up for Christmas, gorgeous views of Chelsea - and the light was PERFECT! By the photos, you might think there were not many people around, but it was crowded. Fortunately, all the attention didn’t bother these two.
We returned to Del Posto, to get in lots of family photos before the cocktail hour and ceremony. Before dinner was served Angela & John professed their love in an emotional and simple ceremony before their family and friends. I love how intimate this wedding felt - their loved ones were just a few feet away and their vows were very personal.
After the ceremony, they celebrated with a first dance and lots of congratulations by family and friends. The beautiful simplicity and elegance of the wedding reflected them perfectly and I’m honored to be present to witness it!
Congratulations, Angela & John!
