Sylvia and Brandon’s DUMBO Loft Wedding in Brooklyn, NY was an especially meaningful celebration for me to document. I first met Sylvia in graduate school about a decade ago and we became close friends over the years despite living on opposite ends of the country. We worked for the same company and would catch up on shows like Dexter and Glee (yes I realize, very different types of shows). I first met Brandon a couple years ago when I was visiting Brooklyn and could instantly see how the two of them fit together. Both had a love of the outdoors, food, climbing and hiking… And both had a similarly quirky sense of humor that you can’t help but smile when you’re around them.
Photographing a close friend’s wedding can be a little bittersweet: You get to be around your friends for the majority of the day when other guests aren’t around, but you’re not really able to get down and party with them either. But their intimate wedding that included some friends of mine who I hadn’t seen since graduate school made for a really great time despite “working” most of the day. In the end, I was really happy and honored to be able to document Sylvia and Brandon’s the DUMBO Loft wedding in Brooklyn. Here is a sampling of some of my favorites:
