Rachel and Jonathan have the ultimate romance– they’ve been together since high school and have built their shared life over all these years loving one another. So it was no surprise that when it came time to deliver his vows, Jonathan broke into tears of sweet joy as he struggled to get the words out to his beloved. Moments like this are rare– they don’t often surface in our day to day lives– this is one of the many reasons I love my work. I get to witness such moving interactions between couples, families, and friends, and I feel incredibly privileged to be the photographer that’s there to capture these precious emotions! Throughout the day there were lots of moments I loved– the fact that it was raining outside couldn’t begin to put a damper on this event! Everyone was in wonderful spirits and excited for the union and the celebration to follow. I got there early to do some scouting and set up my photobooth for use during the reception and the smiles in Rachel’s bridal suite said it all– this was gonna be a fun wedding! Sure enough the dance floor was full of fun– you can imagine how excited Rachel and Jonathan’s friends (many of whom have probably known them since childhood!) were to finally celebrate this wedding. Highlights included a lovely Ketubah signing, a lively Hora dance, and even a Mezinka to congratulate Rachel’s parents. Though rain kept us from venturing away from the building, I was able to nab a quick shot of the couple with the sunset sky peaking over a building up behind them, and later in the evening I was able to quickly set up a neat little night portrait of the couple standing under an overhang and as luck would have it I got a very cool effect from lighting up the steam from a stand that was set up to give out hot NYC pretzels to guests as they departed the wedding. Congratulations to Rachel and Jonathan on a fabulous fun wedding!
