Bridget & Chris // Ruby Street Wedding

“You know what I really love about it as well? It wasn’t just “oh, I hired you that’s it.” It’s an actual friendship that we got to build upon.”
– Bridget (the bride) on her relationship with me (the photographer, duh)

Just about this time last year, I was sipping on a cappuccino in Kenneth Village with a sweet engaged couple who wanted to vet me to potentially be their wedding photographer. After a few minutes of the usual wedding questions and photography equipment/experience rundown, we somehow ended up talking about our love of horror movies, sharks, and how weird our pets are.

Later that fall, I shot their engagement session, and went on to do a boudoir shoot with Bridget this spring. She really has become a friend of mine — a woman I adore more and more with each random text we exchange. Needless to say, I did turn out to be their wedding photographer as well, and spending all day with Bridget & Chris basically felt like stalking really good friends for 8 hours rather than a shot list for clients.

There was something incredibly cinematic about their wedding day — and it was the perfect balance of classic and unique — never lacking in personality. Their love of books and amazing taste in music shined throughout their wedding day, and I am so excited to share some of my favorite moments with you on the blog.

Bridget & Chris: thank you again for the huge honor of trusting me to be your wedding photographer. I was legitimately tearing up while photographing your vows, because they were some of the deepest, most honest and meaningful promises I have ever heard exchanged. Your wedding was so much more than a photo opportunity for me. It was so much bigger than a job. It was a reminder for me that radical love exists. Thank you both for that.
