What It’s Like Photographing an NYC Wedding

As a New York City wedding photographer for over 20 years, I feel I have a certain insight into what it is like photographing an NYC wedding. If you are getting married in the city and plan to take any photos in public, you need to prepare yourself.

Prepare yourself for what, you ask?

Yes, people are going to approach you! Some will even ask if they can have a photo taken with you. Why? I have NO IDEA. Most of the people who will ask to take a picture with you will be tourists, and the closer you are to a major tourist attraction the more likely it will happen. Perhaps they see it as a ‘unique New York City experience’?
