I have been talking about this New York City wedding since they booked me, and I could not wait shoot this day, and what a day it was!!! My assistant and I started at the Ritz Carlton NY Battery Park for Jen and Mars’ prep and first look, and from there just hopped in a cab to hit the streets for portraits. There was this little walkway bridge they loved and when we got there, all sorts of construction was going on. But if anyone knows true New Yorkers, they will bend over backwards to help out when need be, and they did- so thanks guys! They both rocked that location liked the owned it.
After that, we went to the rooftop of their apartment which has a great view of the the Freedom Tower. Then on to the seriously cool venue at the Ritz Carlton for the ceremony and reception. Maxine Daniels ran the day perfectly on time, and we’re taking her for every wedding now 🙂 Here’s how cool this wedding was: when the couple walked down the aisle, everyone cheered! That was the vibe of the day, and continued throughout the night. Thank you so much Jen and Mars for allowing us to capture your day!
On a personal and professional note, I decided to borrow Nikon’s 35mm 1.4 lens to test drive it. I like it, it’s nice, but having 3 primes is enough for me. That morning as I was about to shoot my first frame, I eagerly said to my assistant, “I bet I can shoot this whole wedding with primes only!” And I did. It very challenging, but I’m glad I did. Here are some of the highlights from this unforgettable day.
