A High Line Engagement: Anna & Andrew

High Line engagement photo shot during golden hour by NYC wedding photojournalist, Kelly Williams

Hi everyone!  I am pleased to share with you the recent High Line engagement portrait of Anna and Andrew.  As you can tell from the photos, the lighting was perfect!  A few words of wisdom if you are going to stage a shoot at the High Line: first, if at all possible, schedule your shoot for the morning.  The tourists come in throngs to the High Line, making it nearly impossible to get a clear shot without a lot of patience.  Mornings, before the 10:00 a.m. rush, are the best.  Second, take advantage of all that the High Line has to offer.  There are several different views, terrain, and moods to the High Line.  Make sure your shoot goes from the Meatpacking District down to 34th Street to get some different looks without ever having to get off the High Line.

I’m honored to be photographing Anna and Andrew’s wedding this weekend at the Alger House.  Best of luck to them both as they walk down the aisle!

I had a fun day with Emily and Mike, shooting their engagement portrait at the Lyndhurst Mansion in ye olde Tarrytown, New York.  The mansion is the stately former home of Jay Gould, and is definitely worth a visit.  Emily and Mike are an adorable couple, and both have former stage experience — it shows!  Let these pics be an inspiration to all of you couples out there who are looking for a unique location for your engagement shoot.  Road trips are definitely the way to go!

Colleen & Sean: A Merchant’s House Museum Wedding

Merchant’s House Museum wedding photos by NYC wedding photojournalist, Kelly Williams

I am so happy to bring you the wedding of Colleen and Sean!  While they live in Seattle, New York City is near and dear to their hearts.  They had their ceremony on a lovely day in the back garden of the Merchant’s House Museum.  If you haven’t checked out the Museum located in the middle of NoHo, you definitely should, especially if you are having a small wedding.  The venue is beautiful both inside and out, complete with exquisite details from the 1800s throughout the house.  And the backyard makes you and your guests feel like you have been transported outside of the chaos of the city.

Engaged: Robin & Chad

Congrats to Robin and Chad, who recently became engaged!  [I had the honor of shooting their wedding as well, but more on that later…]  Robin and Chad are a testament to the fact that if love is meant to be, it will be no matter time or distance.  After originally meeting over 17 years ago, they were reunited over Facebook and started dating long distance.  Their 13 year ‘break’ became a thing of the past when Chad asked Robin to marry him on the deck of his parents’ house overlooking a beautiful Nova Scotian sunset.

For the shoot, we headed to the Highline where the NYC sunset was working in our favor.  Enjoy the pics!

Annabelle & Nate: A Harvard Club Wedding

Harvard Club wedding photos by NYC wedding photojournalist, Kelly Williams

The wedding of Annabelle and Nate was one of the most fun events to photograph this season.  This couple’s heritage is Albanian and Armenian, and that translates into fantastic dancing!  They even had a belly dancer and plenty of singing, including a beautiful ballad from the groom as he surprised his bride by serenading her on the dance floor.  The ceremony was held at the Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, right by the Staten Island Ferry terminal downtown.  It’s a lovely, small chapel with gorgeous light streaming in.
