Brooklyn Botanic Garden Wedding: Tracy and Dan

This spring’s cold weather was a double-edged sword. Tracy and Dan were married in May, a bit after the traditional peak of the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens Palm House. But thanks to a late-to-arrive spring, they exploded into color just at the right time. The coordinator surprised them with the idea that they could have the ceremony right out in the middle of them, and thank the photo gods that it all worked out.

Of course, the cold hadn’t quite stopped snapping. Want to creating a bonding experience for a group of bridesmaids who don’t know each other that well? Have fantastic light, flowing dresses and a ceremony in the low 50s. By the end they were huddled together, and instant friends just in time for a wild, beautiful party. I tell ym couples that cold is romantic — it makes you want to be closer together — but I didn’t realize how broadly this can be applied.

Thanks to Braham Rhodes for helping out!

  3. Great pics. That looks like a super fun wedding!! Were they all hams or did you have to bring it out of them? Great stuff!!

  4. Ryan mentions that he used 20 lights for the last image but then says he only had about 30 seconds to get it done, something about using 1 light 20 times.. can someone explains what he did here please? Curious amateur photographer.
