Brian & Tara - The Mysterious Bookshop Proposal

I absolutely adore when a proposal spot has meaning to it. Tara works in publishing and loves books, so it made total sense for Brian to pick The Mysterious Bookshop! He spent weeks planning all the small details, making sure everything would be perfect. Brian had actually been collecting little momentos from their life together over the years, and displayed each of them with books on a table. In the middle, a sign that reads "Marry Me?" Sooo sweet! Shortly after the proposal we headed over to Rockefeller Park for a few scenic photos, wrapping up a beautiful and special day. Congrats Brian & Tara!

Vik & Krishma - Gapstow Bridge Central Park Proposal

I love getting calls where someone is planning their proposal. The combination of excitement and nervousness really creates something special. When Vik reached out to me, he said that he wasn't sure where he wanted to propose. We started brainstorming and ended up in Central Park. Then we added some extra flair and decided on a picnic scenario! This was totally new to me but I was down for a challenge. He and Krishma were actually coming to NYC because it's her favorite city in the whole world, which made it truly fitting to get proposed to here. The day of the proposal I stopped by a florist, brought a wicker basket/blanket, some wine and glasses and was off! Once the spot was setup, all that was left was to wait for them to show up and make some magic happen. He popped the question and she said yes!! They enjoyed some wine together and then we wandered around Central Park. We wrapped up around The Plaza Hotel as she absolutely adores it, so made it a stop! So excited for this Texas couple and for all their future adventures. Congrats Vik & Krishma!

Ilyse & Max - Boston Commons Engagement

What makes a road trip all the way from New York to Boston worth it? To be able to work with an amazing and awesome couple like Ilyse & Max!

The trip was quite interesting; It was 75 degrees in NYC when I picked up Michelle in Brooklyn and headed out towards Boston. Once we drove into Connecticut, the temperature started to drop and it also started to rain. As we drove deeper into Connecticut, it started to snow! By the time we got to Boston, it was very windy and pretty freezing!

We met up with Ilyse and Max at Boston Common and instantly had a great connection. They are just SO sweet, romantic, silly and adorable! We walked around Boston Common, Boston Public Garden and through Branch st (where a very angry resident threatened to call the cops on us because she didn't like us photographing around the area, haha).

The session came to an end and it was getting even colder outside by now, especially since the wind had picked up even more. What do we do now to end the evening? We went to Picco, where we all enjoyed ice cream together (it's never too cold for ice cream). Absolutely delicious! It was such a blast working with Ilyse and Max and we can't wait to photograph their wedding this year!

Juztina & Justin - Bowery Engagement

When your couple asks to do photos in the Bowery, you know you're in for a good time. Juztina and Justin both love the urban atmosphere over there, and we do too so we set it up! We started our session at some super awesome graffiti walls filled with all different types of art. We were even able to stop by Freeman's Alley! While wandering around we also discovered an intimate park right in the middle of the Bowery. It was a perfect contrast to the city vibes, and gave us a bit of gorgeous greens :) It started to rain just as we were wrapping up, but that didn't stop the fun! Juztina had been prepared with adorable orange rainboots and yellow/orange umbrellas! All the wandering around we'd done had made us all pretty hungry so we stopped for a slice of cheesy NYC pizza! We had such a blast with these two and we're so hyped for their wedding at Brooklyn Winery this year!

Matt & Chrysanne - The Olde Mill Inn Wedding

What a gorgeous wedding day at the Olde Mill Inn!

The day began with Matt and Chrysanne getting ready with their closest bridesmaids, groomsmen and family. Chrysanne even had a man-of-honor which we absolutely love, yay for breaking traditions!

Chrysanne’s “something blue” was something absolutely precious - a heart from her grandfathers t-shirt sewn into her wedding dress and her engagement and wedding band was Matt’s grandmothers ring from Ireland. These sentimental touches always feel so special to us, as they really bring the meaning of what a wedding is together. To be with your loved ones on the day that you marry the love of your life.

As they read their vows to each other in front of a gorgeous rose backdrop, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Next up was the partay! They had a super sweet first dance with the whole dance floor filling up afterwards. We wrapped up the night with some fresh air outside, and a full moon glowing on us. Congrats to Matt and Chrysanne, it was so awesome working with you guys!

Sharrel & Jonathan - Prospect Park Couples Session

Can these two get any cuter? No way. I had such an amazing time photographing Sharrel and Jonathan! We had originally wanted to shoot by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden but it actually closed as we got there. We made the best of it and wandered around the outside of the garden a bit and through Prospect Park! So much fun!

Laurel & Andrew - Montauk Club Wedding

Our client blog posts are full of ridiculously happy couples who are thrilled to be finally marrying the love of their lives. Today, join us on a trip to the splendid Montauk Club in Brooklyn to witness the joining of another pair of amazing humans: introducing Andrew and Laurel at their beautiful Brooklyn Wedding.

The journey began at Hotel Indigo where the couple, their bridesmaids and groomsmen were getting ready. We took some truly gorgeous photos of Laurel along with her four gorgeous bridesmaids. The bride’s designer Pronovias dress was classy with netted sleeves and a column of white beads trailing down the back. She also opted to wear Van high tops instead of heels! Who says you cant be comfortable at your wedding?

We learnt that the chic jewelry also had a lot of personal value: the ring on her right hand was actually a gift given to her ten years ago from Andrew. It was a beautiful sign of commitment and Laurel hardly ever takes it off. Moreover, the bronze bracelet adorning her hand was personally handmade by Andrew’s grandfather, Hugh.

Andrew – immaculately dressed in a tux and stylish printed tie – had the first look of his stunning bride at Brooklyn Bridge Park. We took beautiful photos of the couple under the brick arches and more of the whole group by the waterfront. The weather was fabulous and paired with dazzling and happy smiles, we got some great photos.

The couple soon made their way towards The Montauk Club and was joined by their family for the official ceremony. A smile brighter than the sun lit up Andrew’s face as he made his way down the aisle. With a soothing melody of flutes and violins in the background, Andrew and Laurel got married!

The wedding party proceeded downstairs to the reception, where food and music awaited them. Andrew and Laurel cut their delicious, sprinkled, and super Brooklyn wedding cake and we captured some precious memories as they took to the floor for their first dance. From the fabulous rehearsal dinner to the gorgeous reception, we at Wandermore Photography had a fantastic time working with this happy couple. Here’s to a beautiful future and many more amazing memories for Andrew and Laurel ahead.

Jenna & Josh - Mount Tremper Arts Wedding

Jenna and Josh's wedding is one for the books. Not only because it was an absolutely beautiful wedding, but because Jenna is an incredibly close friend of ours (and a great photographer herself!)  and Josh very quickly became a wonderful friend as well. They chose Mount Tremper Art as a way to give back and support artists. She's always putting other people before herself, even for her own wedding! 

The day began with both of them getting ready at the venue, Josh at their farm house and Jenna at their cabin. Surrounded by their bridesmaids and groomsmen, they had a super relaxed atmosphere with a touch of "let's do this"! For extra flair, Josh put on crane cuff links and a tie bar to match the handmade crane backdrop at the ceremony, while Jenna put on her beaded floral wedding dress from BHLDN. After getting dressed, Josh went to meet Jenna for their first look in a wildflower field with mountains in the background. It was a gorgeous scene and a perfect place to see each other in an intimate a sweet moment.

Next up was the ceremony! Two close friends played guitars while they walked down the aisle. After reciting their insanely sweet vows for each other, they were officially married! They went outside for a fun bubble exit with all their friends and family, leading to cocktail hour and then their reception in the open tent space. They set out custom designed glasses for each guest to use and take home as gifts, and on each table setting there were handmade cranes to continue with the theme. Following was their first dance, happy toasts, and tons of dancing! It was such a lovely day and we were so honored to have the pleasure of capturing it. Wishing Josh and Jenna all the best wishes in their adventures together!
