They met through Bumble and had a first date that started at 3pm and wrapped up at 10. He proposed in bed on her birthday while she was reading birthday cards, and they got married this summer on the anniversary of their first date. I was thrilled to be there to photograph it for them!
We met up at City Hall in Manhattan for their ceremony, where they were surrounded by a small handful of family and friends. After family photos on the steps, we sent family off to the restaurant they’re having lunch and I took them to Chinatown for fun “eloping in NYC” photos (even though these two are locals who live in Brooklyn! But that still counts as an elopement.)
My absolute fave detail of the day was Anna’s dress. She scored a vintage Comme des Garçons sundress on eBay, and counted it as her “something old”.
It has pockets!
She paired her dress with hot pink Ferragamo flats.
Anna’s earrings served as her “something new” and are from Jangmi, a local jeweler here in NYC that has been in business for 30 years. Her bracelet belongs to friend and counted as her “something borrowed”, and she wore a tiny blue enamel bee on her hairpiece for “something blue”, a nod to her nickname: Anna Bee.
I kept them for a few extra minutes this day, and tried out some wide angle shots while we were walking on the streets. I think I’ll slowly work them into my coverage, which is an exciting development as an artist.
