Charlene & Joe: A New York City Wedding

I was asked a few months ago by Dave Joe of D Moment Photography to come along as a second shooter for a wedding in NYC. How could I pass up the offer? As I got more details about the wedding day I become more and more excited about it. I mean really? Who wouldn't be?

-Working for an amazing NYC wedding photographer? Check!

-Hot couple? Check!

-Guys getting ready at the Waldorf Astoria? Check!

-Girls getting ready at the New York Palace Hotel? Check!

-Ceremony at St. Patricks Cathedral? BIG CHECK!

-Reception at Gotham Hall? Wait? What's Gotham Hall...? You'll see in a minute, but yes, CHECK!

This wedding was amazing. I try to maintain a professional demeanor when shooting weddings, and it's kinda hard to do being a natural goofball, but the whole time my mouth was wide open in amazement at the beauty of it all.

But enough words, here are my fav's of the day.

Suit: $500
Shoes: $200
Tie: $100
Having your future brother in law running around with none of those things on: PRICELESS!

So fresh and so clean.

When we arrived at Gotham Hall I was tasked with getting some shots of the centerpieces and the grand ball room. I walked into a completely empty room with just Joe and Charlene sharing a quiet moment and practicing their first dance.

Time to party!
