Fran & Jimmy were married on Leap Day under Bethesda Terrace in Central Park. It was cold and rainy, and there wasn’t another soul around, which was kind of amazing since Bethesda Terrace is one of the busiest areas in the park. They had traveled from Australia to have an intimate elopement in the heart of New York City, and despite the wind and rain, it was a pretty incredible day. Their ceremony was officiated by the always wonderful Judie Guild, and then we braved the weather to go out and capture portraits in some of their favorite New York City spots – the Guggenheim, the LOVE sculpture, and Grand Central Station. Fran is an architect, so capturing New York City’s architecture and unique buildings in their photographs was very important to them. While I was thrilled with the photographs we captured on their wedding day, I wasn’t thrilled that we had an umbrella in almost every single one, so I insisted they meet me the next afternoon at the High Line, so I could get a few photographs when it wasn’t pouring rain. Fran & Jimmy sweetly obliged, and so the second half of this post is actually their Day After session.
These two were a joy to work with in every single way, and I was so happy to be a part of their elopement. Fran & Jimmy, thank you both so much for everything!
