Can’t you just tell when things just feel, “right” between two people? I definitely got that feeling as the wedding photographer for Jenn and Bert’s wedding at Brooklyn Bridge Park, especially during their first look and portrait sessions. Sometimes things just… fit. They both got ready at the brand new Wyndham Garden in Chinatown right on Bowery in Lower Manhattan, where they had their adorable “first look” as well. I loved coming here to shoot, as I was quite familiar with the area, having visited what seems like nearly every weekend of my life, growing up, and it was the same area Bert grew up as well. Things sure have changed in the last several years. Anyhow, we then headed over to DUMBO for some portraits of this cute couple (and their dog, Tommie), in some pretty fantastic light, and the chemistry between these two really shined through, as did their charismatic wedding party! I’ve shot engagements in this area, but having an actual wedding right on the concrete steps of the Brooklyn Bridge Park was a first, and definitely a cool experience! Their ceremony took place overlooking Manhattan skyline, including the Freedom Tower (finally finished!), the Brooklyn Bridge (still not finished!), and of course, the Empire State Building and Statue of Liberty. The day concluded with Jenn and Bert’s Chinese banquet reception and tea ceremony with their adorable respective parents and relatives at the Grand Harmony Palace in Chinatown right on Mott St., where 45Riots was there to rock the night away. I have no doubts that these two are well on their way to a seriously awesome happily ever after. Thanks so much for the honor of shooting your wedding, and congrats again, guys! Thanks also to my second shooter William Chang for some great shots too =)
