Nicole and James Long Island
A couple weeks back I headed out to shoot Nicole and James’ wedding out on Long Island with my friend, and AMAZING photographer Angelica Glass. If you aren’t familiar with Angelica’s work you have to check it out, she is a true artist. Her work is so true to who she is, very cool to see that authenticity. I got to New York City on Thursday evening and immediately headed into town to a couple of bars that I was not even close to cool enough to be in lol! I kept looking around and thinking “I remember the 80’s and this is more ’80’s than the ’80s were!” We also ate at some BBQ place that really did a number to my gut, it took me over a week to get over that food poisoning! Good times, right? Gotta love being super sick 2,500 miles from home and having to shoot a wedding!
Well, the good news, besides the fact that I felt okay for the wedding day, is that Nicole and James ROCKED! They were such an hot couple and truly in love with each other. Funny thing; they met because of a prank phone call, how great is that! They were totally down to shoot whatever we wanted and were not shy about their vices at all…quite a refreshing change from all those who go sneak a cigarette out back haha!
One fun fact about me shooting this wedding (for any tech geeks out there); I shot the entire wedding with my 1DsMKII, a 50L 1.2 lens, a set of pocket wizards and a 580 flash! Lol, I’ve always wanted to just shoot an entire wedding with just one focal length!
Great dress, great shoe, beautiful bride; what more could I ask for!?
