Part of the picture

Somewhere along the way I learned that as a wedding photographer I didn’t always need to keep myself out of the picture. Yes that is my hand in the foreground and yes I did drink that shot of tequila at 11am. In the center is Brian Leahy, the groom and keeper of the excellent blog The Groom Says. A year earlier I did engagement portraits around Brooklyn with Brian and his now-wife Joanna so when I showed up at Pacifico on Smith Street in Boerum Hill, we were able to get right down to business.
