Michele & Jawara had their wedding at lovely, spacious, and unique space (only a few blocks from my studio!) known as The Metropolitan Building. My assistant and I arrived early and got to work shooting the details — the amazing Jenah Barry was there putting finishing touches on the gorgeous flowers and decor they had prepared for this wedding. This is a big loft building with open areas, long banks of windows, and tons of antiques and furniture one could describe as shabby chic, or perhaps just “vintage” would cover it– in any case, it’s very cool place to have a wedding and doesn’t need much dressing up– if someone like Jenah works her magic with flowers here you’re all set! When Michele arrived we joined her upstairs for getting ready shots in one of the many cool areas of this building that I was thrilled to utilize for photographs. After sweet first look in a pretty spot I took them to a few the building’s most interesting spots for portraits of them as a couple, and then we went through their list of family groups and prepared for the ceremony, which would take place in this lovely open area with distressed green wooden floors, decorated that day with pretty paper garlands hanging up around the room’s central chandelier. After tying the knot, we captured the rest of the evening in documentary style with some nice off-camera lighting when appropriate. Everything went off without a hitch thanks to the excellent planning by Leah of Green Apple Weddings! I just love this venue, it was a delight to shoot there again and I truly hope to be back again soon! Congratulations, Michele & Jawara–it was a night to remember!
