Sarah & Matthew traveled from Australia with a few of their closest friends to elope on The High Line earlier this spring. Although I’ve photographed lots of portrait sessions on the High Line, it was my first opportunity to photograph a ceremony there. I have to say, I think this is such a great alternative to Central Park, and I would absolutely love to shoot a ceremony there again.
I met Sarah & Matthew at the Ace Hotel where they were staying for a little pre-wedding toast with all of their friends. The fridge was stocked with champagne, and they’d also gotten some Crack Pie from Momofuku for after the wedding, so clearly they had all the necessities covered. We then all headed off to the High Line to meet their awesome officiant – Genevieve Dreizen. Their ceremony was amazing – they promised to stay together even through the zombie apocalypse, and that is real love. Afterwards, their friends went off for drinks, while Sarah, Matthew, and I took some time for portraits. The light was spectacular. Light like this is why I so adamantly push my clients to have their ceremonies close to sunrise or sunset – the results are always amazing.
Sarah & Matthew – I adored working with you two! It was such a perfect day, and I was thrilled to be a part of it! Thank you for everything!
