When two architects decide to get married, it only makes sense to do the engagement session where they first met, at Pratt Institute! We strolled around the campus, all the while Blaine giving fun facts about different spots through the university. Of course we also stopped by the architecture part of the campus! We ended the session in a local cafe that the two of them used to stop by all the time. It was so much fun working with them and wishing them all the best, congrats Yoko and Blaine!
When Shane reached out to me saying he wanted to propose on the ice, how could I say anything but YES!? He told me that he's taking her on a "road trip" (flying) so she can see all of his favorite places in the USA, since she'd never had a chance to visit before. They traveled all the way from Australia and had already seen a couple of spots, but of course, NYC was a huge one on the list!
The Rink at Rockefeller Center is so gorgeous at night, lit up with warm and bright colors. As they skated around the rink having fun, Allyson had no idea what was to come. They made the announcements for everyone to exit and Shane handed his cell phone to an employee for one "last photo" in front of the fountain. Right after that he turned to her and dropped down on one knee. She said yes!! Then they happily did a quick skate around the rink and headed over to their celebratory champagne toast. We then wandered around to a few different locations, from Bryant Park to Grand Central! Congrats to both of you Shane & Allyson, it was an absolute pleasure :)
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!
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 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!

Farham proposed to Atoosa while on their trip to NYC from Canada! He set the whole thing up for her to believe that they were going to be heading to a show, with a stroll in Central Park beforehand. Little did she know she was actually going to get proposed to (and did go to see a broadway show a different day)! It was such a sweet moment and we even had a chance to explore the park. The cold couldn't stop this couples love, congrats to both of you!
When you imagine a perfect match, you should think of Mark and Marc. Everything about them as individuals helps them balance each other out as a couple, a wonderful yin and yang. We started their wedding day by strolling around town, which was super adorable with its small-town charm. We then headed over to Onteora Lake for some gorgeous views and a perfect place to take photos.
Time for the ceremony! Mark & Marc’s wedding was held at Senate Garage in Kingston, NY and it absolutely blew us away. A perfect combination of outdoor ceremony spot, cocktail hour area, and reception space. The Fall leaves had covered up the grass in the ceremony spot with beautiful reds and oranges, and we were all heart eyes for it. The ceremony itself was just so sweet and filled with happy tears. We had to work hard not to cry ourselves! With a super fun exit, we moved into cocktail hour and then in the blink of an eye it was time for a grand entrance at the reception!
The night was filled with beautiful toasts, dancing for days, and delicious food. There were even board games set out that you could play at your table! At the end of the night, Mark and Marc cut their Star Wars themed wedding cake, and of course Mark had to throw on a Darth Vader mask! No other way to do it 😊 It was such a pleasure photographing their wedding and we wish these two all the joy and happiness in the world.
Mike and Angie were so much fun to work with! We always have the best time when our couples are ready to explore :) We wandered around South Stree Seaport, where they actually live, but discovered a few new spots. We then did a half taxi/ half walk to Rockefeller Park, which is next to Battery Park and were treated with a gorgeous sunset. We're even more excited now, as they've moved to California and we'll be photographing their wedding there this Fall! Congrats you two, can't wait for your wedding!
Jessie and Noah’s wedding at Dobbin St. was a day filled with so many happy emotions. From the girls getting ready to the first dance at the reception, feel free to scroll along and experience the magic of Jessie and Noah’s spectacular wedding.
Note: Wandermore is always here to help if reader experiences sudden emotional tears/a demanding urge to get married afterwards.
The weather was bright and cheery in Williamsburg when Jessie and her girls arrived at the local AirB&B. She was adorned in a gorgeous white dress by Karen Willis Holmes that went with diamond hoop earrings and a natural, classy makeup look. We took some breathtaking shots of Jessie and Roxie (the couple’s adorable pet dog) by the balcony of her room.
Enter the bridesmaids! All 8 gorgeous ladies looked stunning in their matching magenta jumpsuits. After hugs and tears were shared when seeing Jessie in her dress, the group made their way towards McCarren Park, where Noah was eagerly waiting to have his first look with his soon to be wife.
Jessie made a thoroughly enjoyable entrance by coming up behind Noah with Roxie in tow. The happy couple looked absolutely gorgeous together, and Roxie was pretty excited to see her dad looking so dapper! After some couples and bridal party photos, we moved on to the ceremony at the Dobbin St. rooftop. Surrounded on all sides by close friends and family, and under an arch of lush green garlands and flowers with the sun shining bright; it was indeed a beautiful place to continue this new chapter of their story.
The reception was downstairs where guests were treated to a delicious dinner by Hometown BBQ and desserts by Sweethaus. The renowned band Mod Society struck up a tune for the Jessie and Noah’s first dance as a married couple. The rest of the evening was spent in a glorious fashion of eating and dancing. We had an incredible time and are so honored we had the chance to document this special day. Wishing Jessie and Noah never-ending happiness throughout their lives!

Brooklyn Bridge is beautiful at all times of day, but there's something super special about watching the sunrise come up beside it. When Wilson reached out saying he wanted to do a sunrise proposal on the Brooklyn Bridge, of course we said yes! He and Chelsea were visiting NYC from Texas on vacation. As they walked across the bridge and stopped for a selfie or two, Wilson gathered the courage to ask the big question. He got down on his knee and opened a gorgeous turquoise ring box with a diamond inside. Chelsea was blown away and said yes! As an extra surprise, her sister and close friends joined them just a minute later! Congrats Wilson & Chelsea, it was a pleasure photographing your beautiful proposal.
