Congratulations to Silje and Fredrik! Shooting their wedding was really something new to me and I really enjoyed the process. Silje contacted me about 2 weeks before their wedding hoping that I was available for their day. She mentioned that she and Fredrik were planning to elope in NYC all the way from Norway. Their plan was to get married on the Brooklyn Bridge and enjoy their time in NYC. Now I’ve never shot an elopement before let alone a wedding on the Brooklyn Bridge. If you know me I’m all about Brooklyn so I was really ecstatic about this opportunity.
Fast forwarding to their wedding day. If I said that it poured I really believe that, that would be an understatement. New York City felt like a rain forest minus the vegetation. Anyeka and I were soaked, Silje and Fredrik were also soaked, but there were real troopers about it. Far too often couples worry about taking photos in the rain; I, however, embrace it. I know it might not be the most pleasant experience but it can be as equally beautiful as shooting on a sunny day. Silje and Fredrik performed as if it weren’t raining at all which made us all comfortable.
I’m happy the Silje and Fredrik chose me to photograph their ceremony. I wish them the best as they begin their new lives together.
