Angel and Wing, aka, Angel-Wings, decided to have their engagement session over my the Cloisters Museum on the Upper West side. They also really wanted to include Max, Wing’s dog, into the session, so we went to Fort Tryon Park after. I remember Max when he was a little puppy! Now he’s all grown up, hyper as ever and seeing his best friend get married. It is too sweet! ^_^ Here are some of the highlights from the shoot!
So happy to have been able to photograph with Alice and Jason Wu for their big wedding day in July. It was a gorgeous outdoors ceremony with many friends and family. The day couldn’t have been any more perfect. It was a cool summer morning and the day went so smoothly. I’ve known Alice and Jason since before they even dated, and now they were married. It has been such a journey and such a beautiful one at that. I am so very happy for them both. I could tell that Alice’s father had a bittersweet moment, letting his only daughter go, but I could also tell he was proud, happy and more than willing to allow her to be given to such an honest, faithful and strong man, Jason. After walking his father down the aisle, her father, right before giving up her hand, gave a heartfelt speech. It was a speech that evoked many tears (I seem to cry at every wedding I shoot and then again when I edit ;__;), a speech that was spoken out of love..and a speech that really touched Alice’s heart. It was beyond beautiful! I am so happy to have been there to witness such a glorious day and moment, and would like to share some of my favorite shots from the day with you all! Enjoy!
Meena and Suyash had memorable pre-wedding events. Meena had a special event in the house where she grew up in Connecticut, with a morning ceremony and tying of kalira (silver ornaments tied to the bride’s marriage bangles for good luck) by family and friends, and henna as well. Then the couple had a wonderful evening reception for family and out-of-town guests. The venue was a former bank and the marble floors, vault, floor-to-ceiling windows, and stained glass dome contributed to the beautiful atmosphere as guests mingled, watched a video of wedding wishes from friends around the world, and joined in a touching and hilarious open-mic. The day was gorgeous and elegant, as were Meena and Suyash. Here are some of the highlights:
Congrats to Cori & Spencer! Their venue, Studio Square, was a gorgeous raw space in Long Island City, with an amazing view of the NYC Skyline. I always really appreciate a fun bride, groom and bridal party- they always help create the most fun stop motions and photos! The bride also had specially made Secret Groom’s cake in the shape of his favorite pair of Jordans (he’s a huge sneaker collector). It was really sweet!! All the support and love that was shown throughout the night was palpable and beautiful to witness. It was definitely a memorable night! Here are some of my favorites from the day!
The couple would especially love to give extra thanks to all the vendors that helped make this event happen:
Meet Teresa and Lam! They flew all the way from California to work with me on an engagement session in the great New York City!! It was really awesome– I FOUND THE BUBBLE MAN! It was a very happy moment for me as a NYC photographer. I’ve always wanted to catch him in action during one of my shoots. So to be able to use him was amazing! It was really great working with Teresa and Lam- they were both so chill and fun to work with. Willing to do the crazy things I think of..Here are my favorites from the session:
