Some time ago, when we were deciding on the date for our own wedding and planning how many weekends we should have free around our wedding date we decided that we’ll take on a job the weekend after ours only if it’s going to be a very special opportunity. When we got to meet Megan and Albert last November right away we were inspired by their connection as well as by their love of photography. We captured Megan and Albert’s wedding as a newly minted husband & wife team only 8 days after our own!

The connection these guys share is undeniable and it made it so easy and enjoyable to create art for them. We also absolutely loved their choice of reception venue- The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus! It looked so amazing and unusual, the guests sat all around it and enjoyed a beautiful view of Union Square.

We loved having enough time for our portrait ideas as well as to be able to cover all the unscripted moments of emotion throughout the day. We are so glad to have met you guys and we hope our photographs will bring you a lifetime of blissful memories:
