After deciding to elope in New York City, Laura & Mark traveled up from Virginia and planned a lovely City Hall ceremony. I met them bright and early back in November, and we spent some time taking portraits before heading off to City Hall. They had the great idea to shoot some portraits in the rare book room at The Strand. It’s always so much fun to get to shoot at a new location. City Hall was a mad house – lately it’s been crazier than normal in there. I’m not sure if more people are deciding to elope or if the marriage bureau is just short handed, but it’s definitely been taking longer than normal to go through the process there. But Laura & Mark were very patient, and so excited when it was finally their turn. Laura & Mark – thank you guys for being so wonderful to work with! Happy holidays!
