Sarah + Ian | An intimate NYC wedding

When Daniel Krieger approached me about shooting a wedding at Per Se under his brand as an associate photographer, I could not say 'yes' more quickly. What made the deal even sweeter was that Sarah and Ian are seriously some of the nicest people I've come across working in this industry. So thank you, Daniel, for giving me this opportunity! I chose a few frames from their wedding to share - you can probably tell I was drooling over Sarah's bouquet and dress all day.

We started at the Sofitel near Bryant Park...


... and headed outside for them to do a first look. Check out the sign they made from chemical elements (they are both chemists)! I love some good nerdy fun. We then grabbed a few photos in the charming Upper West Side.


And the ceremony begins! It was a sweet, intimate gathering. I may or may not have shed a few tears myself...


And finally, a few details from Per Se. I had the privilege of eating off the salon menu (which, by the way, is a great alternative to the dozen+ course tasting and you don't need reservations), basically extending my French food gluttony for just a bit longer, as I had just gotten back from Paris. I was sent home with a sleeve of macarons and shortbread cookies from Per Se (thank you, Sarah and Ian!) - seriously, can I shoot more weddings here, please? ;)

  15. Magnificently captured, Alice! You can really tell that these two have great natural (wait for it) chemistry. *I can hear eyes rolling* But truly, great chemistry leads to wonderful pictures. Well, great chemistry and a ridiculously talented photographer.

    Love the detail shots, and especially the food shots. Charming to the last. Keep up the great work!

    1. I create collages in Photoshop or use HTML in the blog post itself.

  22. I'm always in awe of your photography skills. I thought my wedding photographer did a good job (she charged an arm and a leg) but yours definitely surpassed her by a mile.

  24. The light peeking through the leaves – pure beauty. A park seems like a difficult location to shoot in, but the outcome is great.
