Harlem Wedding

December 12, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

The request I received for this wedding was to shoot their wedding in the style I shot documentary series. I used to shoot documentaries using range finder, Leica film cameras. Some of them can be seen on another website of mine, http://www.ayanohisaphoto.com. She saw the photos on my website and requested me to shoot like old-fashioned black and white documentary style rather than contemporary wedding style. I became really excited to hear that from my wedding client. I haven't photographed black and white for a while and it completely refreshed my eyes again. Although I still used my digital cameras, I tried to keep focusing on imagining how these scenes would look like in black and white. Here are some results! Congratulations you two, the beautiful couple!

Amandine and Bart's Wedding

November 28, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Amandine contacted me through our mutual good friend, Shannon. Shannon and I were classmates when we were at Savannah College of Art and Design, working on our master's degree. We actually had a thesis show together. He now teaches Photography in Tennessee and Amandine is his student. Amandine and Bart are French, from Tennessee! I love how my clients are international and from all over the world! They had a nice intimate ceremony with their friends in the Central Park, and then we moved to New Jersey to do some portraits with the Manhattan cityscape / nightscape. The timing was perfect for the photos. We caught when the sun was going down and the night lights started to be on as it got darker. Beautiful couple in the beautiful nightscape! Congratulations, Amandine and Bart!!

Helen and Joseph's Wedding

November 07, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Helen and Joseph had their wedding in Brooklyn. We first went to the Brooklyn Bridge for some portrait session. It was photo-perfect sunny day with the beautiful blue sky.  Then we moved to the East Harbor Seafood Palace also in Brooklyn. I have photographed a few weddings there and they have the funniest games for the wedding couple and guests. Helen and Joseph did both American and Chinese style, including the American style first dance and the Chinese style tea ceremony. People were enjoying the great Chinese food, too. Helen and Joseph looked so happy together. Congratulations, Helen and Joseph!!!


 


Alice and Max's Wedding

October 16, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I photographed Alice and Max for their engagement. It is always good to do engagement photography so the the couple gets to know how I work and we get to know about each other. Their wedding was at the beautiful Boathouse in the Prospect Park. The ceremony was outdoor, in front of the little lake and the bridge. It felt great to be there under the blue sky, surrounded by the nature, and was also visually gorgeous. The reception was inside the boathouse. There were good food, music, laughter, pretty flowers, games, and people were having great time. Alice was wearing a beautiful dress made by her friend. Alice and Max was smiling and laughing throughout the whole wedding and looked so happy together. Congratulations, Alice and Max!!! 

 

 


Kim and Ming's Wedding

October 15, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

I met Kim and Ming through my past client / good friends after their wedding, Ayako and Shakeem. Kim is a good friend of Ayako's. They had their ceremony at the New York city hall (marriage bureau / city clerk's office), and the reception at a nice restaurant in lower east side, Grocco. Although the wait time at the city hall was longer than usual, the ceremony went very quickly as it usually does in the city hall. You wait for half hour, the officiant comes and within two minutes, you are married! We did a few portraits around the city hall, and then moved to lower east side to do some more. Kim was really nervous being photographed, as most brides are, but they did really good job in front of camera and look really cute together!! Congratulations, Kim and Ming!!!
