Manhattan in May

Family and friends came to the 4th Unitarian Church at 76th street and Central Park West. A beautiful old church in the wilderness-bordered Manhattan jungle. The bride had arranged for us to meet with her family before hand at the parks entrance to do group photos. This made the day follow a smooth timeline, and the couple could maximize their time with guests. (I didn't learn until after that the bride Sara is a writer, and has been writing for the WETV website)

I was being helped by friend Natalie with the camera work. It made everything easier, and took away stress having an assistant. But I always stay cool.. We changed the plan and took photos at the Museum of Natural History's lawn across the street. Being in the shade allowed the guests more comfort and made the photos less glaring from the mid afternoon sun. The temperature this day was 88 degrees!

Cheers and best wishes Sara and John!

Photographing a wedding as Central Park blooms in Spring we had a great time! Sara and John married at a tremendous and intimate New York City wedding.
