Kate and Mike originally contacted me during the holidays, asking if I was available for their wedding the following September. We talked a little and planned to catch up when they had more details.
A couple weeks later, they emailed again. Scrapping their original 200-person wedding, they’d decided to elope instead… in three day’s time! Luckily Mondays in January tend to be quiet, and I was available. We made a quick plan and I headed down to Hoboken to capture this very joyful little wedding.
I loved the true elopement spirit of their wedding. Just two of them, plus a couple of friends and siblings. Everything about the day was super personalized. They chose to get married on the anniversary of their first date, and we stopped for a bouquet at the bodega where Mike first bought Kate flowers. They both wore boots to stay comfortable and true to their style. I knew they would be awesome to hang out with because they’re such kind people. They also are photographers themselves, and I love working with fellow artists.
It was pretty chilly, but at least mostly sunny. We wandered around for about an hour finding the best light, then met up for their ceremony where they exchanged twine rings. Many seagulls and geese were witness to the union. Anyway, enough words, onto the photos!
