New York Wedding PhotographerI always love when the portrait location that the bride and groom choose is meaningful to them. Both the bride and groom in this photograph reside in New York, and there is no more iconic a Manhattan location than the Meatpacking District and the Highline. With both an Indian and a Christian ceremony planned within hours of each other on their wedding day the bride and groom knew that we would have to meet early in the day to begin their portrait session. With the early morning light streaming over the cobblestones we started shooting in the Meatpacking District at daybreak. I often speak about how much I love the light later in the day and it was a rare treat to get to work with equally gorgeous light in the earlier morning hours. Manhattan can be a crazy busy place but the streets were nearly deserted at this hour on a weekend morning.
