Styled Shoot // Same-Sex Brooklyn Wedding Inspiration - with Sprinkles!

Styled Shoot // Same-Sex Brooklyn Wedding Inspiration - with Sprinkles!

It's not very often that a new venue pops up in Brooklyn. The American Can Factory in Brooklyn is just that. It's a work-space turned exposed-brick-dream-wedding-venue on the weekends. We snagged it to feature this gorgeous real life couple, Alexia and Charm.

Charm, a Texan, is a new NYC transplant, and Alexia is a born and bred New Yorker. They're planning to get married in the near future, and they thought, why not try it out before the real thing? We happily obliged by planning them a day that reflected them, their love, and NYC vendors who celebrate LGBTQ love stories.

Real Couples // Lin-Manuel Miranda-Assisted Engagement: Leah + Rachel

Leah is a theater director in New York City. Rachel is a history teacher. What better place to get engaged than the set of Hamilton with the assistance of Lin-Manuel Miranda?! Yes, that actually happened. These two are the quintessential New York City couple. For our engagement session, we started at their place in Bedford-Stuyvesant and then headed out to the New York Transit Museum (which is my favorite place in NYC), ending in their old neighborhood of Prospect Heights, where they lived together for years.

Real Couples // A New York City Adventure: Leonard + Michelle

Real Couples // A New York City Adventure: Leonard + Michelle

Leonard and Michelle had a full wedding in Korea and then a wedding party in NYC at the Norwood Club, but they wanted to do a portrait session of just the two of them at some of their fave places in NYC doing a few of their favorite things. We hit up the High Line Park and wandered all around their old neighborhood of the West Village. We did some sunset rooftop photos at Leonard’s old apartment (where the kind doorman he used to know let us in!) and finished by getting cocktails at Cafe Gitane in the Jane Hotel.
