New York Wedding

New York Skyline near SunsetTraveling with a camera was my primary job as a Navy photographer. What a pleasure to be in your early twenties, traveling across the United States or the Western Pacific (Singapore, Thailand, Japan, The Philippines). Fast forward – present day, New York, Montana, Chicago, Georgia, Lubbock Texas are some of the places we have traveled to as destination wedding photographers. Our brides and grooms receive a unique package as we love to travel so when we get a request to visit locations outside our home state of Texas – We often work out a “Mini Vacation” exchange. We add a few days after the wedding to visit the local flavor – and only ask the bride/groom to pick up travel expenses (meals, motel, rental car etc). The actual wedding photography is at little or no cost! Yes, that’s right – no cost! We can’t wait for someone going to Hawaii, The Bahamas, Bermuda, Florida or other unique location to “take us with them”.

Ken, Brandie and Wedding Party in LeRoy New Your
Our couple from New York, Ken and Brandie, ended up with such a value package as we happily provided over 4 days of photography. We started in LeRoy, New York, (home of Jell-O) where the bride’s family resided. Rehearsal day and rehearsal dinner coverage was included as we were already there – we were invited to join the happy couple and tell their entire story! After the ceremony in LeRoy – we had a days travel by car with the Wedding party to Long Island, where the grooms family had grown up and had friends of the family ready to celebrate with the wedding couple all over again. The difference in traditional songs, etc between the two locations Leroy and Long Island was interesting! Ken and Brandie also let us know that their first night as newlyweds would be near Times Square and we were planning a day in NYC – So we encouraged a “brief” get together for a few nighttime photos – we didn’t want to interrupt the honey moon as it was a secret to the family that they were still in town. We have become good friends with Ken and Brandie, they have been to Texas with their first born “Victoria”– and we just received a photo greeting announcing the arrival of their second daughter – “Katherine”. The photo greeting announcing Katherine’s arrival prompted this blog article – Debra and I would encourage couples getting married outside of our primary market – Austin, TX to contact us at 512-989-6952 or photo@everafterimages.com. We would love to tell your destination wedding story and pick up a few days working mini vacation as an exchange for services. We have our passports ready! Each package will depend on our availability – and unique travel destination -

Glad you liked the image - we wanted to get the entire town of Leroy and the bridal party in a single photo - this one did the trick...
