My wife, Kate, and I met Karen and John through a mutual friend a couple of Memorial Days ago and really hit it off. They are the kind of couple that every other couple wants to be like and be liked by. We’d had a few dinners with them and really enjoyed getting to know them. We were thrilled to be asked to shoot their wedding at City Hall Restaurant. We got a chance to do a first look on a very warm day in Central Park and man, oh man, did they glow. I always make a real effort to make the portrait session relaxing and fun…more like a little private time…an oasis of calm in the middle of the wildness of the day. These two really took it to heart and laughed and smiled and huge and just loved one another.
I am so grateful to know Karen and John and even more grateful that I will get to continue to know them better. Amazing people. Amazing wedding.
