SAGRARIO AND MIGUEL’S WEDDING | NYC, NY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Hola!  Remember the adorable boy I photographed who got baptized in December?  Well, this January I had the pleasure of photographing Evan’s parents’ wedding.  All weddings are unique, and each have their own benefits and challenges.. this variety is what makes what I do so immensely satisfying.  Sagrario and Miguel had a wonderfully intimate wedding, with the home ceremony officiated 95% in Spanish (Don’t be surprised if I become at least trilingual in a few years..).  We started out at the Hampton Inn in Yonkers, NY, where Sagrario prepared for her first day of married life, and ended the wedding at the Cloisters Museum in NYC.  Of course at that point, it was freezing cold and the museum was closed, but, being with Sagrario and Miguel being the most patient couple in the world, we were able to make use of what sparse time we had outdoors to create some nice light and dramatic photography.  Enjoy!

LILY AND JOHN’S WEDDING REHEARSAL | NEW YORK, NY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

So where were you on 11/11/11?  I was at the Park Ave Church in Manhattan, photographing the wedding rehearsal of my friends, Lily and John, as wifey took on their coordinating duties.  It was simply a joy working together with two of the coolest, most down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet.  Scheduled to shoot with Joshua Wong the very next day at their actual wedding, I always feel it necessary to scope out any new location before any shoots and do my due diligence to scout out the light.  It’s funny how some of the most challenging lighting situations can yield the most dramatic results.  This was most definitely the case with Park Ave.  From the breathtakingly immense organ and gothic stone walls, to the towering ceilings, it truly reminds you that you’re in a masterpiece of architecture.  It served as a great backdrop, contrasted against a tiny ringbearer and flowergirl.  Can’t wait to show you the photos from the real thing!  Keep an eye out on the blog for more real soon (stay up to date by being a fan on my facebook page).  For now, here are just a few shots from their rehearsal…  =)
