It was an amazing opportunity to photograph a Ritz Carlton wedding here in New York. Even more special was being able to document Sharon, Ed and all their loved ones on this special day.
Sharon & Edward met at Midwood High School here in Brooklyn. It interesting to me because so many of our clients went to Midwood. We’re like the official Midwood photographers. I digress. In high school, they dated for about a week, nothing too serious as with most teenage dating experiences. After graduating high school, they lost contact. Sharon left to attend the University at Buffalo and Edward stayed in Brooklyn to attend New York University.
Over a decade later their paths crossed again via Facebook as most love stories do. Through a series of posts from a mutual friend, they reached out to one another. At this point, no one knows who initiated contact, and there is an ongoing debate about who reached out first. Sharon notes that before she reconnected with Ed, she asked God to send me a man that had reverence for Him and an intimate relationship with Him. From the very beginning, Ed always spoke to her and treated her with respect which is paramount.
From our perspective, Sharon & Edward are a perfect match for each other. As cliche as it sounds, from a very basic level, we could tell that their love for each other was genuine from the smallest interactions throughout their wedding day. Anyeka and I are happy to have shared their day with them and captured some images along the way.
