Central Park - Blue Sky/White Sky

We have had a crazy Spring and early Summer here in New York.  Brilliant days alternated with stormy downpours, sometimes several times a week.  We had been planning a Central Park wedding with Richard and Yvonne for over a year.  They had family coming in from all over and were looking forward to some beautiful pictures.  Then it happened - a prediction of torrential rains, gale force winds, and lightning for their wedding day, while the day before was going to be perfect.  So to be sure we got good photos, we asked Yvonne and Richard to put on their wedding clothes the day before and come down to the park.

The first three photos were taken the day before.  The last two were taken on their wedding day. As it turned out, the rain held off till later in the day and the storm was not as dire as first predicted.  Still, we were glad to have gotten those photos the day before.

A Festive Pride Month

This June has been a Pride Month to remember. The Supreme Court has struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8. As one of the growing number of Marriage Equality states, New York is a magnet for same sex couples who want to "make it legal." Congratulations!

A Christmas Day Wedding in Central Park

Carl and Jo decided on Central Park's famous Bow Bridge for their Christmas wedding. It was a short hike to get to, but so romantic on such a cold and quiet day.  It seemed like the whole city was theirs.  They had more privacy for their wedding than they would have had in a hired hall.  The only hustle and bustle on that day was at Rockefeller Center, naturally.  They were having so much fun you would never believe how cold they were. And luckily, they missed the blizzard by one day.
