Lighthouse at Chelsea Pier Wedding Pictures

At this 2012 Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers wedding the bride and groom rented a vintage New York taxi to take them around the city for their portraits. They requested some pictures with this cab, and I was only too happy to oblige. Whenever I have a request to take a photograph of the bride and groom in front of an item, vehicle, or building I try to approach it in a slightly new and different way. We had been at the High Line taking photographs of the bride and groom together, and were getting ready to head back over to the Lighthouse for their ceremony. The cab was waiting for us down at the curb. When I looked down on the cab from the High Line staircase, I knew I had an opportunity to make a creative photograph of the scene before me. I placed the bride and groom next to the front of the cab, and I climbed the stairs back up onto the High Line. This image was shot through the metal fence of the High Line. I love it that the pattern of the dots lead your eye directly to the bride, groom, and cab. I was thrilled to be able to give the bride and groom something other than your standard picture of them just standing in front of the car. Location: 61 Chelsea Piers #300, New York, NY 10011.
