Free Wedding Photography

This is a fun story.

As part of my freelance photography career, I photograph a street fashion feature for a website called Racked.com where I find interesting outfits on the streets of New York City and photograph them. The feature has led me to meet some interesting and fashionable people all randomly on the streets of New York.

Last week I saw Jonathan (click that link to see the photo I took for Racked) walking with a group of people and liked his summery style. He had on a nice looking jacket so I walked over and asked him if he’d like to be featured..to which he said “sure thing”. While I was photographing him, someone from the group said, “You know today is his wedding day.” His now bride was standing in the group and I asked where their photographer was. They had a small ceremony and had gone for lunch at Locanda Verde (I haven’t eaten there but I did photograph it for Eater.com you can click that link to see my photos) and didn’t hire a wedding photographer for the day. I said what a shame that was considering how nice they were both dressed up.. so offered my services for a few minutes to do a little free wedding photography, and they were like “Sure lets do it!”

For the short time we had to take a few photos I think I got some nice one’s… FREE-WEDDING-1FREE-WEDDING-2 FREE-WEDDING-7 FREE-WEDDING-8 FREE-WEDDING-9 FREE-WEDDING-10 FREE-WEDDING-4 FREE-WEDDING-11 FREE-WEDDING-12 FREE-WEDDING-3

  1. This was a wonderful bit of serendipity on my daughter’s wedding day! Jane and Jonathan are a great couple in addition to being stylish. You captured the essence of their special day very well.

  2. Thank you for taking the time to shoot some of the hippest people around! As a longtime family friend of Jane, there is no one better to receive such a gift. The girl has got good karma! Thanks again-Kind Regards, Brooke Bullard

  3. How very lovely! As a longtime friend of the MOB’s, I can see the bride’s wonderful grandmother smiling through her radient and beautiful face. You did a very cool thing. Thank you! I love New Yorkers and New York. Winky

  4. Glad someone mentioned karma … what a great thing you did for a very stylish couple on their wedding day. That “gift” was a huge deposit into the karma bank. Nice work … and great photos (as always)!

  5. these photos are sweet and lovely. dosn’t it feel good to do something like that for someone? i feel photos are a wonderful ‘gift’ to be able to give people weather they’ve payed you to take them or not, and to surprise someone with something as beautiful as what you have given this couple makes it all the more special… both for them and for you! congratulations on a few moments WELL spent daniel.
