Brooklyn by Bridge

This summer wedding was set for Manhattan, Brooklyn Heights, and the Clinton Hill Navy Yard. I worked with my team of Peter Riesett, Erick Gibson, and myeslf. Three is the magic number, and I knew we could get better photos if we had the trio in effect. The bride and groom are super fun, friendly and have an apartment in lower Manhattan. Our day began there. Amy was getting ready in a suite at the the Millenium Hilton on Church St. around the corner and Peter met up to photograph the groom Sean at home. The ceremony was across the river near the Promenade. Brooklyn Heights is one of my favorite neighborhoods from the Patty Duke Show to the Cosby Show it always entranced me with it's wide tree-lined brownstone streets. The ceremony was in one of the oldest parishes is Brooklyn. The reception was a short drive up the coast to Steiner Studios. This location was excellent with views of downtown NYC. Amy and Sean had a family and friend-filled spectacular reception. We got tons of great guest and dance photos with the extra tight music group. I'll remember this wedding for a long time for how cool the couple, smooth summer's day, and what an amazing wedding went down in New York City

Amy and Sean were married in August '09 in New York City. I booked the photography a year in advance with this couple. They knew of Virgil Stephens Photography from a friends wedding the year before, which they were guests.
