Alicia & Carson’s Intimate Wedding at Housing Works Bookstore
Alicia & Carson were married on a chilly Saturday in November in the heart of Soho in New York City. The couple wanted an intimate wedding with close friends and family in attendance, and their venue, Housing Works Bookstore, provided the perfect cozy atmosphere with unique decor for their celebration. I started the day with them in their hotel room just down the street– a lovely room at The Crosby Hotel. Though they got *most of the way* ready together, the two did split up for Alicia’s final dressing details and we brought them back together for a first look in the hotel’s amazing lower level, where we found this cool cinema room to shoot some portraits with them, among other spots. To capture some portraits and group shots outdoors while it was still light out we had planned to meet their family at Washington Square Park under the great arch, just a short cab ride away. From there we made our way back to Crosby street for a few more couple-shots on the walk to the venue, and the rest of the night unfolded beautifully. The officiant did a lovely job of presenting their love story, and highlights of the evening included a set of very sweet toasts from Alicia’s mother and father as well as a lively father-daughter dance and a lot of excitement around the photobooth we set up, utilizing the bookshelves of the bookstore as the backdrop. Towards the end of the night my assistant and I went outside and found a spot to capture a cool LED light-painting shot with one of my favorite photography tools for some swirly rainbow stripes around them during a long exposure. I love what we got! I was honored and delighted to be able to capture this wonderful couple’s wedding– congratulations to Alicia and Carson!
