Laura & Paul Married! || Elope in NYC || City Hall Photographer

I photographed Laura & Paul’s lovely City Hall elopement on a rainy, early summer day. Laura & Paul had traveled from the UK to elope in secret – nobody in their families knew they would be getting married on their trip to New York City. I love elopements that are truly a surprise – there’s something so magical about two people just running away together and having a day that’s just about them and their love. These two could not have been sweeter – and Paul in particular was so delightfully nervous. I just adored them both immediately. After their quick City Hall ceremony, we headed out for portraits, and despite a few sprinkles, the clouds gave us the most gorgeous, diffused light to work with. It was just a spectacular day, and I love the photographs we captured together.
