Jay & Tony
The Plaza Hotel, New York, NY
Every time I step into The Plaza Hotel to photograph a wedding there is an electric feeling inside. This day was particularly special as it was the first time a gay wedding would ever be held in this historic and storied space. Jay & Tony's love for each other is undeniable & infectious. If you come see me in the office, definitely ask for this album to see more of their day.
Lots of people say “it was a privilege” to be able to photograph this or that. It really was an amazing honor to be there as father and son prepped for such an important moment.
The staircase at The Plaza provides for one of the most stunning settings to see each other for the first time. My assistant and I prepared to photograph this with both a wide angle and telephoto lens to capture the scene as well as a close, emotional perspective.
Tantawan Bloom designed two distinct settings within the ballroom. A classic, formal space for dinner and a sensational re-creation of Central Park for dancing.
