WPPI Bride and Groom TogetherOh, the High Line. The single place in New York City that I both adore and despise. It’s a wonderful location, full of unique backgrounds and quirky patches of light. For those of you not from New York, the High Line is a one-mile long linear park built on an old New York Railroad line. It was first opened after construction in 2009, with a second section opening in 2012, and a third in late 2014. It’s a wonderfully unique urban park and the site of many engagement sessions, as well as a common location that brides and grooms request for their wedding day portraits. At this 2012 May wedding, the High Line was especially packed as it was Memorial Day weekend and the entire city was swarming with tourists. I had to find some way to create unique images for my bride and groom while managing to navigate the teeming throngs of people and the crushing heat. I entered this image into the Bride and Groom Together Wedding Day category of the 2013 WPPI 16x20 International Print Competition and was thrilled with my final score!" 1/250; f/4.0; ISO 200; 35.0 mm.
