My ultimate goal is creating wedding photos that you’ll be proud to look back on. Luckily, taking those photos in New York City makes capturing those incredible moments almost too easy. There aren’t many places like New York that can give you amazing views and backgrounds to set up a photo with. Here are just a few ways that New York can spice up your wedding photos and create something that will bring those happy feelings back in an instant.
Incredible Views From On High
The verticality of New York City is one of its biggest draws for taking wedding photos that you’ll end up loving. Rooftop pictures give your wedding photos a gorgeous background that you just can’t get anywhere else. Whether looking up to the buildings around you or down on the city below, New York City’s height is one of its best features.
Nature and Civilization Combined
There’s a fascinating balance in New York City between the natural world and feats of human engineering. As strange as it may seem, that contrast between gorgeous natural vistas and sleek human-made ones offers up a ton of opportunities for unique photos. Central Park alone has enough different viewpoints to create an entire album of beautiful wedding photos.
Old School and New School
Another great way in which I use New York itself to punch up your wedding photos is by incorporating its old school charm with its modern beauty. While we usually think of massive skyscrapers and crisscrossing roads, New York is also one of the oldest cities in our country. This means it has plenty of historical sites that you can use to have the best of both worlds, both the old and new, in your photographs.
Big City Lights
Getting married around New York City and not taking advantage of the incredible lights that you’re afforded is practically a crime. Whether you’re already using the heights of the city or the more natural places, the lights of the city can create truly eye-catching photos that you can’t replicate in other places. I utilize the city lights to set up intricately detailed photos or create the best backdrop possible for a silhouetted masterpiece.
If you need a New York wedding photographer who can use the city’s charms to make your wedding photos better than you can imagine, allow me to introduce myself! Whatever vision you have for your wedding photos, I can make it come to life with memories that will last forever.

As wonderful as the memories of your wedding day are, it’s the photos from that day that will last the longest and help remind you of those incredible moments. As such, it’s worth taking the time to come up with some truly memorable photos that really capture the energy and spirit of your wedding. We’ve all seen wedding photos that are perfectly fine but don’t really speak to who the people in the picture are. Here are a few ways to make your wedding photos stand out from the more standard photos you might be used to.
Incorporate Elements of Your Relationship
You and your future spouse are more than just two people about to get married—you have a long and complex relationship that started before the wedding and will continue long after it. Don’t be afraid to incorporate things from your relationship that are unique to you and your partner into your photos. Featuring a favorite hobby or pastime you share or a special place of deep significance can make your photos much more meaningful in the long run.
Go Beyond Static Poses
There’s nothing wrong with a beautiful photograph with everyone in a simple pose. But if you want a way to make your wedding photos stand out, you don’t have to feel constrained to those basic pictures where everyone is standing shoulder to shoulder. Feel free to inject who you are as a person into your wedding photos! Pictures that feature some form of movement can create a striking contrast to what most people expect from wedding photos.
Capture the Candid Moments
Taking the extra time to set up the perfect photo can certainly pay off, but don’t forget that candid moments of real, raw emotion can sometimes make the most memorable pictures. I often work with people who feel uncomfortable in standard photos yet look incredible when you can catch them in a candid moment of joy or laughter!
Utilize Unique Backdrops
If you’re going for more creative wedding photography, switching up the background in your photos is a key element. Plenty of my clients in New York City will use the city itself to create a gorgeous backdrop that stands out quite a bit from the safer, more neutral backgrounds used in many traditional wedding photos.
Don’t Fall for Every Trend
Wedding trends come and go constantly, usually faster than I or anyone else can keep up with. While there is always room to mess around with a cute photography trend here and there, it’s important to remember that these memories will last you decades into the future, far past when those trends die out. Have fun with your wedding photos, of course! But don’t forget to capture the people and moments who really matter to you.
No matter how you want to make your wedding photos unique, I would love to make your vision a reality. If you’d like to see what I can do for you, call as soon as possible!
