Jessica and Lior wanted their family to share in their elopement in Cityhall. So the whole troupe met at up at the New York City Hall and supported their vows and intimate ceremony! Afterwards, a few rain drops broke out---but it didn't dampen the mood and aura of the group! We proceeded to Casa Mono (A DELICIOUS Michelin starred restaurant!! @__@) for their reception, full of laughter, endearing speeches-- especially from the man who brought Jess and Lior together-- and amazing FOOD and drinks! It was an awesome experience getting to spend a day with such a sweet group of people! I love photographing these intimate elopements and capturing the moments that will matter for them in the future! I love being able to be their new york city wedding photographer! Here are some of my favorite moments from the day:
Sherrie and Dan both attended Teacher's College at Columbia University on the Upper West Side of NYC. So when they asked if they could do their engagement session there-- I was really excited!!! I don't know what it is about libraries... ^_^ Our session began in the space where they spent most of their time studying, learning and equipping themselves to become the wonderful teachers that they are today. Dan now teaches High Schoolers and Sherrie teaches elementary students. I have so much respect for these two, they are excited to inspire and mentor the younger generation. They're also extremely carefree, fun and easy to be around and talk to!! It was a great session filled with taking polaroids of each other, singing, playing the guitar & ukulele and just really enjoying being each other's presence. We ended the night at Riverside Drive Park, and it was such a wonderful space and atmosphere to be in! It was awesome and I can't wait to photograph their wedding day as their new york city wedding photographer! They will be having their reception at Picnic House in Prospect Park! It’s going to so rad!!!
Sherrie & Daniel are two gorgeous people, with even more gorgeous personalities and hearts. They were so thoughtful, sweet, generous and suuuper easy to get along with! I even photographed their engagement session at Columbia University’s Library on the Upper West Side! Throughout the entire day, people were pouring out love and support upon them. We began with getting ready in Queens and then shooting at a nearby park. It was in mid-november... and the foliage was beautiful. It was a bit nippy out- but Sherrie, Dan and the crew were so solid, they fought through and we got some amazing shots because of it! They had their beautiful ceremony at FGNY Church and then had their reception at the Picnic House in Prospect Park, Brooklyn, New York. The decor and design was gorgeous and really reminded me of a Beauty and the Beast-like feel. There were amazing surprise dance performances and just a lot of laughter and joy throughout the night! So blessed to have gotten to be a part of the day and again so glad to be a new york city wedding photographer and travel all over the city to capture amazing moments!
