It just so happened that on one of the hottest days of the summer, I had the pleasure of photographing one of the chillest couples I’ve ever met.
Paul and Allegra wanted a low-key City Hall and Red Hook wedding that showcased some Brooklyn grit. After their New York City Hall wedding, we headed to Red Hook, a less-trafficked neighborhood flanked by the New York Harbor. In the early 1900s it was a prosperous shipping and port area; almost a century later in the ’90s, Life magazine named it the “crack capital of America.” Nowadays, the area has echoes of both eras… and I mean that in the best way possible. Personally, it’s one of my favorite locations for couples looking for something industrial and less traditional.
First, a stop at Red Hook institution Steve’s Authentic for some key lime pie in lieu of traditional wedding cake. Then a casual stroll amongst rolling metal doors, big brick warehouses and beautiful street art. And this couple absolutely nailed it, all in near-100% humidity.
Congrats, you two!
