“What do we do about photos if it rains on our wedding day?” is a common question I hear from many of my clients. Aside from always having a rolodex of nearby backup locations on hand, sometimes it’s just logistically easier (and wiser) to just embrace it. I know, probably not something a bride who has spent a fortune on her dress wants to hear. However, umbrellas do exist for a reason! (And they look pretty great in photographs, if used appropriately). Besides, you want to remember your wedding day as it actually was, am I right?

 

Here are some highlights from a recent wedding at The Green Building on a rainy February weekend. Despite the weather, my clients couldn’t have been happier, and by embracing the rain, they allowed themselves to truly enjoy their wedding, worry and stress-free.

As another nor’easter hit NYC on the first day of Spring, and my shoot in Manhattan was postponed due to inclement weather, I quickly grabbed my camera and set out on foot to do what I seldom have the opportunity to do these days — shoot for myself. Here are some snaps from around the neighborhood that I call (and have always called) home.

Pretty winter streetscapes, Park Slope, Brooklyn

Always love shooting at The Green Building, even on non-wedding days

Smith Union Market, a Carroll Gardens classic

Venue: Old Stone House

Catering: Zaytoons

Everything Else: Bride + Groom

Loved shooting this wedding at the Old Stone House for a multitude of reasons.  First and foremost, Freddie + Cameron couldn’t have been more delightful to work with. After shooting their Gowanus engagement session, I knew I’d have a great time at their small, intimate wedding (held directly across the street from my home!). Thanks, F+C, for having me photograph such a special day! Some snaps below…
