I would say I “saved the best [wedding] for last” but quite honestly, we had one helluva year as far as weddings and awesome clients go. They’ve all been pretty amazing. This wedding season has been filled with adventurous and fun-loving couples who would happily brave the elements, get their dresses a little dirty, and willingly hike up mountaintops – all for one singular purpose: getting that epic shot with their soulmate in their arms. Jaclyn & Dylan would be no different.
I remember nudging these two lovebirds out of their comfort zone (as many wedding photographers do) by making them say silly things (in public, no less!) – but they happily did so anyway, and willingly got weird with me on the streets of the West Village with open arms. And you know what? The smiles and laughter on their faces were worth it, and I’d do it 100x all over again (and I believe they would too).
Jaclyn & Dylan recently tied the knot at Maritime Parc in Jersey City over this past holiday season. Together with their friends and family, they shared some laughter, food, and a wine decanter which somehow became the evening’s MVP. We wrapped up the evening with a sparkler photo in front of one of my favoritest cities in the world: New York City. If that’s not a great end to an already amazing year, I don’t know what is!
