Percy + Hollis – An NYC Wedding : Empire Hotel and Central Park Arsenal

It was a real joy to photograph this wedding.  I’ve known Percy and Hollis for about 4 years.  When I was first starting my little photography business,  they helped me build my portfolio shooting their headshots.   A few years later he popped the question and I was honored to shoot their engagement photos.  So when Hollis asked me to shoot their wedding as well, I was very excited indeed!  Hollis got ready at the Empire Hotel while Percy got ready a few blocks away at his father’s apartment.  They did a first look on the rooftop bar of the Empire while dozens of bathing suit clad onlookers cheered them on!  After a few photos around the area, we headed to Christ and St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church for the ceremony.   The reception was held at the Central Park Arsenal.  Despite a few threatening drops of rain, it ended up clearing completely and the whole evening was just perfect.

Something else really cool and unique was that they hired a company called Storymix MediaStorymix provided them with HD Flip camcorders and then Hollis and Percy distributed them to trusted guests to capture the day.  After the wedding, they sent the Flips back to Storymix who then edit the footage captured and create a video for them!  Such a great, alternative idea to a traditional video!

Hollis and Percy, it’s been such a pleasure being your photographer through the years!   Here are a few (ok, A LOT) of my favorites from the day.
