Wedding Photographer at Liberty HouseThe dynamics between the members of a bridal party can really make a wedding day spectacular. At this Maritime Parc wedding the bridal party, bride, groom, and I took some time to visit Liberty State Park in New Jersey for some portraits of the group. The wedding party at this wedding was simply tremendous. Kind, supportive, fun, and funny, they surrounded the bride and groom all day with laughter and love. I wanted to make some images for them that truly illustrated this relationship. After we took the standard smiling-at-the-camera portraits, I simply instructed the group to "hang out together!" This image is the result of that direction. I chose to shoot the image with a Nikon 70-200mm lens at 70mm to include the reflections on each side of the group. Liberty State Park is a gorgeous location for Maritime Parc weddings to take portraits. It’s bright and spacious with gorgeous light - something that is often hard to come by in the city!
