Allan was one of the first friends I made in New York back in 2010 and we've been tight ever since. We've done a lot together in the last 6 years and him and Kat were actually instrumental in introducing me to Natalie, who is now my fiancée. So to say I love these two and owe them a lot is an understatement. With Kat and Allan being together for over 10+ years, when he told me he was ready to marry Kat, I knew my gift for them would be to photograph their wedding and portraits.
Natalie and I headed over to Kat and Allan's place in Clinton Hill where I photographed them getting ready and Natalie started with Kat's hair and makeup. With Kat working as a designer at Steve Madden, her shoes were specially designed just for the wedding. After their first look, we headed out on a rainy day in April to head to the marriage bureau in Manhattan. Joined by his awesome bosses and friends from the showroom he works at, Nutty Rice, we celebrated their love. A few days later, we went over to Black Bear Bar in Williamsburg to party even more, it was the perfect wedding for a perfect pair.
