Wedding Pictures at the Bowery Hotel

Since the primary focus of my work is documentary in nature I have many prospective clients worry that I don’t take posed family photographs - or if I do I don’t like to shoot them. I absolutely, totally, and completely do take family photographs at nearly every wedding that I shoot and I love doing it! I love this image of the bride and her bridesmaids. When posing my family and bridal party groupings I try to keep them formal, yet still casual and comfortable. I love the halo of light around the heads of the women. I love the city skyline behind them. I love the pop of greenery from the plant off camera left. The Bowery Hotel never disappoints and this bridal suite balcony is always a tremendous place to shoot these family and bridal party portraits. After taking this image we moved on to complete the rest of the family and bridal party images and then headed down to the second floor to finish up cocktail hour and start the wedding reception!
