Alvin & Lucia – their wedding in Central Park, NYC
There’s quite a story here. Alvin is an avid follower of the Tangents blog, and decided he’d like to have me photograph their wedding ceremony at Wagners Cove in Central Park. He and his bride-to-be, Lucia, who are both from the UK, wanted to get married in Central Park.
Since it would be a very intimate little ceremony with just the two of them, they asked me if I’d like to sign the wedding documents as the witness. Of course! I was hugely flattered already that they’d chosen me to be their photographer, and being the witness would be an honor indeed.
More about the back-story from Lucia’s email to me :
So this is how they ended up getting married in New York, even though they are from the UK.
I knew that for the portrait session in the Park afterwards, my life would be much easier (and the photographs look better), if I had off-camera lighting with me. But I didn’t want to invite an assistant along that would be a stranger in such a small group. So I asked my daughter, Janine, to assist me. Good idea, because Alvin already knew who she was from my posts on Tangents. His first words to her when we met at the hotel before-hand, was, “How was your trip to Amsterdam?”
Here’s a link for those of you who might be interested in the techie details about the photography.
Here is a selection of photos which are my favorite images of the day. There is even a photo of when Janine was asked to sign as second witness, and Alvin offered to hold the softbox up!
Alvin and Lucia, it was an absolute delight to have met the two of you. Best of luck forward on your journey together.
