When Francesca and Matt contacted me over a year ago to chat about the ins and outs of shooting their wedding in New York, I said yes immediately…and then it seemed impossible to imagine that it would truly take place.
Sure, my flight was booked, the months flew by, and the emails that went between us confirmed over and over that this was indeed happening, and yet even on the plane on my way over it still didn’t quite seem real.
I eventually found myself on a perfect summer day driving my rented Jeep across the Bear Mountain Bridge in upstate New York to where I would meet Francesca and Matt. The majestic Hudson River was sparkling to my left and right and under me, and at that point, knowing I was nearly there, a small part of my brain was waving a flag that said “This is insane.”
Yet when I pulled into the absolutely epic Stonecrop Gardens with Francesca and Matt right in front of me, it not only felt completely magical, it also felt like the most natural thing in the world.
I was so honoured to be invited to New York to shoot this wedding. There were so many shots at the end of it all that I have to publish it over two posts (!!). In part two we’ll be going to Brooklyn, so start hailing your cabs now!
Love Sarah xo
