Destination Wedding: New York

We photographed this gorgeous wedding in New York city! We loved the couple, which we will call Sophia & Andre, to protect their identities, since the groom is in professional sports, which we will call “ballroom dancing”. Kidding about the ballroom dancing, he plays a very rough, manly sport. We had such an amazing time with them on the wedding day, and they couldn’t have been more down to earth! The wedding began with a wedding at a church, a couple hours in Central Park, and finally the Mandarin Oriental New York for the reception. This was not only a destination for us, but this was an actual destination wedding for the bride and groom who live outside of NY. We just added this wedding to our FAR + AWAY galleries, which you can view more images right here.

I will say this turned out to be the craziest weekend for me…We had a 3 day convention to photograph for Stella & Dot in San Francisco. While Brook spent a few days in NY meeting with clients, scouting locations, I began Friday in San Francisco photographing Stella & Dot’s Hoopla weekend with two other photographers. I photographed all day till about 9pm, caught a taxi to the airport, flew a red eye flight to NY, slept 2 hours on the plane, arrived in the morning, changed clothes and photographed the wedding from 11am to 11pm. Got a couple of hours sleep again, hopped a crazy early flight so we could arrive in San Francisco by 8am so we could take over for our other shooters covering the Stella & Dot convention. Which we shot all of Sunday, of course. There’s always time for sleep later…

Thank you again to “Sophia & Andre” for flying us to New York to document your Big Day!
