Vintage-Inspired NYC Elopement | Chris + Melanie

Londoners Chris and Melanie eloped in New York City; they got married at City Hall by themselves, then met me at the Jade Hotel in Greenwich Village. We started our session in the cozy lobby before going out into the cold, clear day.

Melanie's outfit is amazing, isn't it? She chose a floor length emerald velvet gown with a corset underneath and a vintage mink wrap with a classic brooch. People stopped them on the street to say they looked amazing, and it's pretty much impossible to get New Yorkers to raise an eyebrow.

These two were absolutely wonderful to work with and let me pick where I wanted to take them, so I chose my favorite place in the City: Washington Square Park.

We shot these photo in the late afternoon time frame just as the days were getting super short, and the winter light was gorgeous and deep gold.
