Shooting Melanie and Matt's engagement session was a TON of fun. They picked out a bunch of hot spots that they frequented when they lived in the Upper West Side in New York City. They chose the subway station they always got out of, the supermarket they always shopped at, the cafe they always got their sweets on and then the gardens they used to take strolls in nearby their old apartment. This entire engagement photo shoot was everything that represented their relationship-- and that's what made it so special. Even just being a part of the New York City traffic jams was all part of their lifestyle. Not to mention- I love shooting in the most unique places- supermarkets O__O!! Working with these two was so easy and fun and these photos definitely capture their relationship and personality. I love what I do and I love being a New York City wedding photographer. Here are some of my fav shots! Enjoy!
It's a bit nippy in January, but 1/23 was a special date to Melanie and Matt. The day began at the Standard Hotel in Chelsea, New York City, then had their intimate ceremony at St Peter’s Church | Our Lady of the Rosary downtown in battery city. They chose a really cute little restaurant named Locanda Verde (Which the FOOD IS AMAZING) in Greenwich for their reception and had a really awesome laid back party. It was truly such an amazing day!! Everyone was excited and happy for the couple ..and had been waiting years for this day to come! Every detail of the day was a perfect addition, her gorgeous dress from BHLDN, the florals, the bridesmaids gifts - cozy shawls for the outdoor photos =P -- everything couldn't have been more perfect! It was the definition of a New York City Wedding! It’s always so wonderful to be able to capture such a diverse crowd with the union of this multi-cultural couple! Loved it! Here are some of my favorites from the day:
