Meet Rachel and Spenser who got married in Central Park at the Shakespeare Garden. A truly amazing, happy and such a pleasure to be around couple. I first contacted by Spenser’s mom a couple of weeks before the actual wedding ceremony. She called and with her splendid North Carolina accent explained that she was looking for someone to cover the couple’s ceremony. They were traveling in from North Carolina and wanted to get married in Central Park. It was to be just a quick one person shoot for a few hours. Having been used to covering all weddings with a team of 2 other shooters, I was excited about the idea of having to film on my own. This allowed for more intimacy between me and the couple. They were able to relax more having been surrounded by just a few people while getting ready and it gave me a chance to get to know them better.
I decided to begin the film with some aerial NYC skyline shots and setting the scene for the lovely ceremony.
Rachel and Spenser chose Central Park’s Shakespeare Garden for their ceremony.
After the ceremony we spent a few minutes strolling around the garden.
Rachel and Spenser, thank you for allowing me to capture your love story. For allowing me to meet your families and making me feel so welcomed.
