When Sara told me that she and Frank were getting married on a sunset cruise around Manhattan, I couldn’t have been more excited! I had never photographed a wedding on a boat before, and I couldn’t wait to capture Sara and Frank in front of the city skyline.

I spent the afternoon photographing Sara and her bridesmaids getting ready and soaking in such an exciting day together! As soon as Sara slipped into her wedding dress, we drove to the boat to meet Frank for the first look (the sweetest first look EVER, might I add!).

Sara and Frank read handwritten vows to each other during an intimate ceremony with their family members and friends. As I watched the guests reactions around the room, I saw how loved Sara and Frank truly are.

Just before sunset, we slipped out onto the rooftop deck to photograph Sara and Frank’s pink and golden light filled portraits. The BEST!

Congratulations, Sara and Frank! It was such an honor to photograph your wedding day. Enjoy some of my favorites below!

If Sara & Frank receive 30 comments on this blog post, I’ll send them a complimentary 8×10 print of their choice!

A huge thank you to all of the fabulous vendors involved!
