One of my absolute favorites. Kodak Tri-X shot on the plastic Holga for some ethereal beauty at Rancho Las Cruces in Baja California.
For the most part my couples find me via word of mouth from past clients, but every now and then a random referral comes in and when this one did I nearly fell off of my chair. A fellow photographer who I had met at a photojournalism workshop in Guatemala referred me to Solange and Brian in Brooklyn. When Brian first wrote to me he mentioned that Solange is a fashion stylist at Paper Magazine which in and of itself is fantastic because you know a stylist’s wedding is going to be bangin’, but what got me was that Brian is a producer (now the head producer) of This American Life. If you don’t know what that is google it immediately. I have been listening to this radio show since I was a wee thing of 18 years old and my boyfriend had the box set of the first few seasons. We used to have it on continuously driving to New Hampshire from Massachusetts to go riding at Wildcat Mountain. Fast forward almost 20 years and now I listen to it every time I have to take the hour trip into Puerto Vallarta or am about to get on a plane. There’s nothing better to get you through airport travel than This American Life. film wedding photographer new york
So of course I was in and man I am so glad that I was. During the ceremony they played a This American Life style radio clip about their first encounter where they ran around in the rain drinking whiskey before going to an old bookstore where Solange recommend Brian buy the a volume of Edward P. Jones stories which subsequently was also the book they used to store their rings in for the wedding. Solange’s style was felt throughout the day from her Alessandra Rich dress with fringe (fringe!!) to the hanging flower atrium that she scoured the flower district for in the weeks counting down to the wedding. Everything was specifically curated for their wedding down to the last detail.film wedding photographer new york
This was and will continue to be one of my absolute favorite events I have ever been a part of and I can only hope the images below transport you to the magical fiesta of love that was Solange and Brian’s Bed-Stuy wedding.
Jess and Dave’s insanely amazing Mexico wedding is featured in this month’s national issue of The Knot and they absolutely killed it on the layout. Yazmin designed everything to perfection as always and the local details that were used throughout were simple enough not to take away from the natural beauty of the beach in San Pancho. celebrity wedding photographer
Solange and Brian’s insanely wonderful New York wedding was featured in Vogue.com last week and in this month’s issue of Brides magazine. Solange is a stylist for Paper magazine and understandingly so her wedding was full of the most perfect details you can imagine. Nothing over the top, just the right amount to make their day picture perfect. You can check out more images and their incredible story here. The full post will be up as soon as I’m done traveling on the west coast for my end of summer weddings.
I’m loving all the press this celebration got as it was my favorite of the year (which may or may not be because Brian is a producer for This American Life and they had an actual story they recorded and played during the ceremony, but I’ll save that for the wedding post).
