Stephanie + Albert’s New York City Wedding

If you know me at all you know my absolute love for Manhattan. I lived there for couple years assisting and shooting..and I don’t shoot there as much as I would like nowadays. So when these fine folks asked me to come out to shoot their wedding I think I typed YES before I had even finished reading the email.

I was totally nerding out over the view of the Statue of Liberty while I shot. It was RIGHT there. Also, it should have been freezing cold but wasn’t. The groomsmen should have been in black tuxes but they weren’t. All happy accidents. Who knows when I will photograph a groom in a red suit again? It’s the little things that make me happy.

Thanks to Stephanie and Albert for having me be there. You have started a great family (do you spy their adorable son in the mini tux? He is only a little bit older than Nova. I crushed hard on him all night).

Getting ready shots were taken at the Ritz Carlton Hotel at Battery Park and the Ceremony and Recpetion took place at Battery Gardens.

J Shoda - If I could make brides look this good, I’d probably be in business. Nice work Rachel, you’re the bees knees :) February 29, 2012 – 3:35 pm
