Sneak Preview: Danielle and Micah
There was so much to love about Danielle and Micah’s wedding at the Bronx Zoo. Cocktail hour in the Madagascar exhibit! Their 12-day-old niece in a zebra bunting! The Halloween party theme!
The best thing, though, is the couple themselves. Danielle and Micah have been in love for thirteen years. They are wonderful together. When Danielle laughs, she doesn’t just giggle. She full on throws her head back and LAUGHS, and Micah just loves her. There’s no other way to describe it.
I was very lucky to have Tom Nycz accompany me as a second shooter. He is a friend of mine whom I’ve known since our darkroom days at Newhouse, though I got to know him much better during the five years we worked together at the newspaper. He’s dipping a toe in the wedding photography pond, so to speak, though he has a few permanent scars from a wedding he took on a couple years ago as a favor.
I kept telling him over and over again that 99% of my wedding client couples are amazing, the kind of people you want to have as friends. After we rode around on a tram taking pictures throughout the zoo, he said, “You know, if I knew for sure that every couple would be even remotely as awesome as these guys are, wedding really could be fun to shoot.” And I’m all, “Told ya!”
I don’t want to jinx myself, but seriously, my last six or seven couples have so great that I want to make them all be friends with me if they aren’t already (Gwen and Alison holla!) See, you thought you were just getting a wedding photographer, but NOW YOU’RE ALL GOING TO GET HOLIDAY CARDS FROM ME FOR LIFE MWAH HA HA HA!
