amber + billy : williamsburg, ny

amber and billy’s wedding was one to remember. it was a gorgeous, sunny, FREEZING day by the water in williamsburg. some of the things that i loved about this wedding were the venues (who doesn’t love the wythe hotel and the brooklyn winery?) and the couple’s willingness and openness for anything. i mean anything. it was about 22 degrees and you should have seen what i put them through at the portrait shoot. jk.

anyways, what rose above everything else was the outpouring of love that i witnessed. they had the most wonderful friends and families.

i was honored to be a part of it.

enjoy!
