New York City Micro Wedding
A vintage car, a couture wedding gown and cape make for wonderful wedding portraits
"Your photos are dreamy. I'm reliving the weekend & they couldn't have been more perfect."
When you plan your micro wedding in NYC in just a few weeks you have to make your decisions quickly and choose an experienced wedding planner and vendors. We only had a few minutes to take Elana and Martin’s wedding portraits and travel to The Foundry in LIC before the wedding ceremony, and I’m so happy with these and many other images that we took before driving the The Foundry. I started taking their wedding portraits in the front of the Wythe Hotel while I was literally in the middle of the intersection at times. Having a 1964 Shelby Cobra from Classic Car Club Manhattan helped make the wedding portraits be even more fabulous! The bride designed her own cape that Pamela Dennis made for her gown as well as her gown. In the next couple of posts you will see some dramatic wedding photographs that we took using Elana’s wedding cape to make memorable wedding photographs. The architecture of the Wythe Hotel in the background and the mural on the walls of New York City helps set the place of the wedding. When I’m shooting any wedding portraits I always make the place important because my couples choose to get married at certain locations for very personal reasons. Elana and Martin live in NYC and originally were planning on getting married in Portugal, but because of the pandemic they decided to have a Micro wedding in New York City that they planned in just a few short weeks. When you are planning a wedding with a short timeline it is imperative to hire vendors who are experienced and are able to be flexible and professional .
