Wedding: Rachel and Matthew at Battery Gardens

It was never hard to see the love that Rachel and Matthew had for each other. When I do a first look with couples it’s always an intense moment, and you never know how you’ll react to intensity. Just because you may laugh or be shy for a moment doesn’t mean you are any less than wildly passionate about your soon-to-be-spouse. But when Matthew and Rachel looked at each other and both started sobbing openly, there’s no mistaking that.

I always love shooting at Battery Gardens, one of my most frequent venues and one with an extremely helpful staff, and it was great to be back on a fantastic, sunny day. The wedding, an interfaith event with both a Christian minister and a rabbi, was touching throughout, and the day was filled with great details such as Rachel’s ring, an heirloom from the 1800s. And then, of course, a great party broke out.

Congratulations Rachel and Matthew!

  1. It was this wedding that inspired me to declare to the world on facebook that I would like to hug you.

    The first of the first look shots is splendid. Having had that moment on my wedding day I know how amazing it is and your photo of a completely different couple still brings me back to it.

  2. Wooo! That’s really quite an intense opening then a roller-coaster ride of fun, joy and happiness. A beautiful insight into the day as ever Ryan.

  3. What can I say! BRILLIANT! Your work is truly inspirational. The way you seamlessly incorporate different elements of the environments into the photographs is amazing. Guy thinking with couple in foreground is also a fav of mine.

  4. Ummmm. Everyone has said what I want to say. You rock!!
