It was about a year ago now I remember doing a skype meeting with Jack and Laura, who were doing a bit of a reverse destination wedding..they were living in the Virgin Islands at the time but were coming back to New York City to be married at the NY Botanical Garden . I was of course excited because having already photographed weddings there before I knew what a gorgeous venue it was and how amazing the grounds were for photography. The day was perfect and the photographs are evidence themselves how beautiful Laura was that day, and her smile was pretty amazing I felt like every shot I took was coming out perfect! We had such a great time and I owe a shout out to my super talented second photographer Bonnie Burke for photographing alongside with me all day at this lavish, festive, perfect wedding. Enjoy the photos!
If you’re going to ask me where’s a beautiful place to get married in New York City, I have a few recommendations… I’ve had the pleasure to shoot at some awesome spots all over NYC, Long Island, and New Jersey, but a really special location is the NY Botanical Garden, which is an Abigail Krisch property. If the time of year is right and you can have your ceremony outdoors its just such a beautiful backdrop..and the trees and flowers offer some wonderful, vibrant colors.
And from the first photo of Michelle you know I was as happy as Greg was because she looked stunning and so comfortable in front of the camera. Her dress was gorgeous and the weather was perfect for a wedding. Combine these things together with a rowdy, fun group ready to dance (and drink a few shots) and I have some of my best photography to date.. From the silly faces to the endless dancing and laughter it was hard to decide which photos I wanted to post but I think we got some gems here in this beautiful fall wedding…
Oh and a quick funny story. Greg and I share the same last name just randomly, no relation. He had found me online earlier this year when he proposed to Michelle and I took a few photos for a quick proposal/engagement session. I’m honored they came back to me for the photography of their wedding..ok no more talking enjoy the photos!
