Choosing a City Hall wedding in NYC provides simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and a touch of urban charm, making it perfect for couples seeking an intimate, private ceremony with minimal planning. For Joelle and Jacob, a City Hall wedding was the ideal choice, enabling them to gather their closest friends and family together, and do a street-style wedding shoot in NYC against an iconic urban backdrop.
They enlisted me as their New York wedding photographer for their special day. However, with a last-minute rain forecast, we made the spontaneous decision to relocate the wedding photoshoot to the Metropolitan Museum of Art instead of the Financial District streets. It turned out to be the perfect choice. We hopped on a train to the Met, allowing us to capture candid moments in the NYC subway. The museum’s diverse halls, adorned with statues and artworks, provided an ideal backdrop. This setting allowed me to craft a collection of classic, bright editorial images seamlessly interwoven with darker, moodier shots in the museum’s dimly lit galleries. Fulfilling the bride’s unique request, we also captured photos in the Arabic halls as a nod to the groom’s heirloom.
What the bride said afterward: “Alina was absolutely incredible to work with! She was so professional and really tailored our elopement photos to our needs while providing great suggestions. We had so much fun with her and she gave us the perfect direction which resulted in stunning photos. Can’t recommend her enough!”
