[Wedding] Kristen & Martin – 3 West Club in Manhattan, NY

Despite being a NYC wedding photographer, I’ll have to admit that I avoid high-traffic areas around town like it’s my sole mission in life. You’d think I’d be used to it by now. But in my head, I’m thinking to myself (in my most obnoxious Brooklyn accent possible), “Hey you’s…never seen a tall building before? Move it or lose it, pal!”. But of course, I’d like to convince myself (and everybody else) that I’m generally a pretty nice guy, and that I’m really trying to avoid having the Naked Cowboy photobombing my photo session again, or getting whacked in the face by one (out of a bajillion) selfie-sticks that are wandering the streets around 5th Avenue :). Kristen & Martin tied the knot nearby at the 3 West Club, also home of the Women’s National Republican Club (which in hindsight, finally explains all the various elephant decor as well as a giant portrait of ol’ Ronnie near the elevators!). Kristen’s morning started quietly at the St. Regis, while Martin’s morning started at their apartment in Tribeca – both with details galore, which is of course every photographer’s dream.
