pete & alexis

At the beginning of the month I had the distinct pleasure in capturing one of my best friend's sister's wedding in New York City. It was so much fun to be a part of the big weekend and to shoot this wonderful celebration.
Not only did I get to photograph Alexis and Pete's day in NYC (which was amazing), but I was able to hire my close friend Ksenija who assisted me with the photography. Ksenija is also an amazing makeup artist and was hired to do the makeup as well. She had a busy day, but did a great job with each responsibility. Thanks Ksen, it was a hoot. I'm so glad we were able to work on a job other than our own sister's weddings!!!
As for the location ... it was super cool. Once again it rained and then snowed on Saturday, but with plenty of practice with "the weather" over 2009, we knew what to do! As you can see Alexis was extremely flexible and allowed us to go outside for a little to capture the goodness around their location. The ceremony and reception took place at Bridewaters right across the street from Pier 16 . What a great location. Obviously we would have loved to have had dry weather, but even with it being wet we found some great spots that really took in what the day was like and where we were located. I love the one with the puddle and the big boat in the background. Super hot! I was very impressed with how Bridgewaters worked the event. There set up was quick, organized, and put together extremely well and the food was gorgeous and super yummy. Well done Bridgewaters!
Cheers to Pete and Alexis. It was awesome working with you. Your relaxed attitude and chill vibe made our jobs easy and enjoyable. We truly enjoyed watching you be so happy. All the best to you both in life and your love, Em
