My last official day in NYC was a good one. The wedding was so beautiful, in spite of the rain, and the bride and groom are seriously incredible people. You could just feel the love that they not only had for everyone present, but the love that everyone expressed for them throughout the wedding day. As many of you know, I no longer run my own photography business, and I haven’t since shortly after Charlotte was born. While I’m so grateful to get to spend every day with Charlotte and not have to worry about clients and deadlines, it leaves me a little wedding-sick. I’m obsessed with the detail that goes into weddings and I love the emotions surrounding the day. My favorite part of the wedding day is usually the toasts. I love getting to know more about the couple from the intimate things shared by close friends and family. And there were some truly sweet things shared in this wedding.
I’m always so grateful that Alyssa has me shoot for her when she needs me because it allows me to scratch that wedding photography itch without the pressure and stress of running a business. She gets to do all of that fun stuff. Hah!
I think in another life I would be a florist. You can’t tell that I love flowers from these photos, right? Just gimme all the flowers.
The misty morning of heading home I spent walking around Bryant park, looking for a decent place for breakfast. Unfortunately, NYC seems to not sleep Saturday nights and nothing noteworthy opened until at least 10am. Here I was roaming around at 7am, landing at Whole Foods for a mediocre bagel and Pret A Manger for a SUPER spicy chai. I was excited to see the airport shuttle at 9:30 to take me home to my little family. I definitely missed them.
