Rachel and Brian had a tumultuous time planning their wedding. They started off in Brooklyn until their venue decided to go under construction months before their wedding. In the end, it couldn’t have been a better thing because they loved having their wedding at Battery Gardens. Battery Gardens is one of our favorite Manhattan wedding venues and we really enjoyed working with the people there as a Battery Gardens wedding photographer.

We started with the couple getting ready at a nearby hotel and then walked to the venue photographing some couple portraits along the way. One of our favorite images from the day ended up encompassing everything Rachel and Brian wanted in their wedding: stunning city views and some time alone on their wedding day. It also includes a little bonus because just before we arrived at the restaurant, the skies opened up and a downpour began – so we’ve got the water in this frame too!
