New Year's Eve Wedding at Liberty Warehouse

New Year's Eve is always stressful. Plans never work out. Parties aren't that fun. People flake. But still- the promise of an epic night on the town to ring in a new year remains a strong pull for most of us excitement-loving New Yorkers. I have to say though, I didn't hesitate in jumping at the chance to cover Sara + Jim's classically wonderful New Year's Eve nuptials. Alright everything was mostly at night, which is tricky for us photographers. I managed to fanangle a first look before the sun went down and I think we were much better for it. The Liberty Warehouse is a cool venue in desperate need of a more flattering lighting design - I had to use my flash for the whole ceremony! But luckily this night was all about the dancing and its dance floor was illuminated by dozens of magical edison bulbs- see below for the evidence. 

Special thanks to the amazing Carey MacArthur for backing me up.

Rainy Day NYC Elopement

As photographers, a lot of our lives are dictated by the weather. Any day, there are a zillion forces beyond our control that dictate whether or not our day will go...smoothly. Anthony and Sanna were married on one of those torrential-downpour kind of days where all you want to do is curl up under a blanket and read a cozy book made for that kind of weather. But you know what? Everything went fine. It was even fine that Sanna was a tad bit late and thought I was some kind of crazy paparazzi when she first got to the Marriage Bureau- look at that hurried starlet look we got! Amazing! And, despite the inclement weather, sharing an umbrella is always romantic.
