Almost a year ago, Karen contacted me telling me that she had always been a fan of my photography on Flickr and if I would be willing to travel to New York to come photograph her wedding. Needless to say, I was stoked. I haven't been to the east coast since I was a little girl on a family trip traveling via one of those Asian tour buses. For the remainder of the year up until it was time for me to hop onto the plane to meet Karen and Ajay for the first time, we kept in contact, and they even whipped up a little “Things to See In New York” list for me.
Karen and Ajay are such a sweet couple. They got married at the beautiful Swan Club in Roslyn, New York. Beautiful as the venue and the day was, you can't beat moments like when Ajay's mother choked up during her speech, Karen listening to her maid of honor recall their memories together and shyly brushing her hair out of her beaming face, and when all the kids gathered together on the dance floor to watch a slideshow of Karen and Ajay that the cute couple made themselves. It was so endearing, and one of my favorite moments of the wedding.
I can't wait to see these two again in the future!
