It’s July 5th and there are still more fireworks going off in the New York City skyline!
Both Megan and Sean were eye candy to photograph on their wedding day as they’re both not only beautiful but have lovable personalities to match. I got to know them quite well as we had two engagement sessions together and we had a blast on each occasion (first and second). Both Megan and Sean are amazing athletes, Sean’s passion is water polo and Megan is a phenomenal triathlete. I was invited to their rehearsal dinner under the condition that I leave my cameras at home. What an honor it was getting to meet their friends and family and experience their interactions. Knowing their story, photographing them on their wedding day came naturally to me as I felt an emotional connection with them. Getting ready started at the spectacular Hilton Millenium Hotel down in the financial district and we took the ferry to Maritime Parc, a beautiful venue, located in Liberty State Park. On the way to the ferry station, the two did an unforgettable first look in the walkway behind the Conrad Hotel. Both the ceremony and reception were spectacular – filled with so much joy and celebration. I must admit I will really miss photographing these two – I’m sure I’ll find another occasion to photograph them. After the reception, we boarded a private ferry that took us near the Statue of Liberty, Megan pointed to the water and said “You know I swam here just a few years ago” – my jaw dropped. Congratulations guys and enjoy the rest of your honeymoon!
