Happy Memorial Day! I’m on the road in Washington DC today as part of my Memorial Day Weekend Wedding World Tour … three weddings and an engagement shoot. Kim and Dinesh were married on Saturday in a gorgeous wedding at Gotham Hall. It’s crazy-season time, but I’ll do my best to keep up, becauase I have so much to show!

Fun fact: We’re at 23rd Street because an off-duty MTA worker wrongly claimed we weren’t allowed to shoot at my subway stop … so we got onto the train and off at the next stop. One day MTA workers will read what the rules actually are (no lights, no tripods, no impeding traffic, otherwise photography is expressly permitted). Shooting with a wedding dress on a rainy day in NYC is a challenge because there is literally nowhere you can go that people will not try to stop you. NYC is like a video game on Hard Mode.

Camera: Nikon D3s
Lens: 10-image “Brenizer method” panorama with the Nikon 105mm f/1.8 AIS (35mm equivalent focal length: 41mm f/0.67 — calculated here)

Ariana - Another stunning shot. Love it.

Dennis Pike - “NYC is like a video game on Hard Mode” love that… and easy mode is always boring.

Love the photo too

Kellee - Most people opt for the glam hotel lobby on a wet day. Love the grunge!
