I had the rare opportunity to photograph Poulami + Brandon getting ready together in their home. I felt so privleged to share these quiet moments with them before their small wedding at Bacchus Restaurant in Brooklyn. I adore weddings like this. Very real, no stress, just two wonderful people deeply in love, getting married, and thats all that matters.
These two beautiful Brits had a 13 year anniversary coming up, and were trying to decide whether to go on a proper vacation, or come to New York and get hitched (finally). So, they did as any last minute planner does. They quickly gathered the logistics for both options, and flipped a coin to see what fate had in store for them. Tails = Holiday / Heads = Hitched. The following pictures are a result of that coin toss.
Brooklynites Matthew + Victoria got married in quite possibly the most fascinating city in America, New Orleans. Their love for food, cutlure, art, and Sazerac's made it the perfect place to get married. They chose Race + Religious as their place of residence + celebration. It's a secluded compound of 2 entwined houses, definitely haunted, with decor to die for, and perfect for bringing a big, fun family together for a few days. We spent a week there to soak it up and get our drawl on....work research, right? Anyways, a big thanks to V+M for having us there, and making us feel more like family with fancy cameras.
So make yourself a Sazerac and enjoy the party.
