[Ceremony & Portraits] Pearl & Hiram – New York City Hall, NY

I met Pearl and Hiram about a year ago when we were photographing their friends Valaya and Johnny. I remember her being one of those bridesmaids who had one of the most serious case of the giggles I’d ever seen. Fast forward  a year later to the present day, not much has changed :). Pearl and Hiram are having their formal reception sometime later this year, but wanted to commemorate the signing of their papers – which according to Google, seems to be my cup of tea (a very delicious one at that!). So when we received their inquiry, we were absolutely honored and thrilled. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to coordinate our schedules 100% for their formal reception later this year. The silver lining in all of this is that our city hall wedding photography packages come with a few hours of portraits anyway. Everybody wins!
