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:
The timeless aura of the classic concrete jungle, is where these charming Singaporean lovers tied the knot. Ness & Denis met in the heart of the new york city, making it the perfect place to declare their love to the world. It can't get more New York City than the elegance of the Plaza Hotel, becoming one at New York City Hall, rings from Tiffany & Co, hotdogs stands, sweet cherry blossoms in Central Park, and strolling around Times Square. It was such a gorgeous day and it was amazing to be able to capture these two in such iconic spaces all over new york city! I was so honored they chose me to be their new york city wedding photographer. Keep scrolling to witness their picture-perfect love story unfold!
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!
I met Christine during my last year in photo school in RIT. She had moved to Rochester, New York for a job. As a hobby, Christine was a huge Model Mayhem-er and me, as a senior- constantly working on my photo projects, I was lucky enough to enlist Christine in a lot of my shoots. Given all the photoshoots we did together, we bonded and built a relationship that is still strong even til today. I'm so excited for Christine as she is about to begin her new life with Jon. Jon has a been a great guy, a producer for HsuBox Productions. He's always been a man of passion and continually is working towards his dream after graduating from NYU. They wanted to do their photoshoot in New York City- we went to Central Park and incorporate food with burgers and shakes from Shake Shack! And without further ado, here are some of the awesome shots I got with the couple!
