Brook & Mélanie's wedding truly was an honor to be a part of, and was actually a bit of a milestone for me. This was the first same-sex wedding that I was hired to photograph. They're such a warm, funny and dynamic couple, and made me feel so welcome while shooting. After spending some time documenting them getting ready at their Lincoln Square apartment, we headed off to Tiny Lounge for an intimate ceremony with family and close friends. I'll be honest, the space was.....well, tiny.....as well as dark. The heart shaped lighted backdrop really helped brighten things up, as well as make for a whimsical compositional element. Searching for and capturing emotional moments is what I enjoy most about photographing weddings. I feel I can better connect with the couple and guests in smaller ceremonies like this, so I truly love the visual opportunities they present. Thank you again to the couple for being so unique and authentic, and for allowing me to capture it all!
