Leaha Bourgeois About

This awesome couple eloped in NYC and did a pop-up wedding on the High Line! After riding on a big red tour bus, they said their I do's and ran through the streets of our favorite city. We took a short pit stop to catch our breathe and a cab. I ran across the street and saw a perfectly framed shot and asked them to jump in quickly before it got dangerous. The cab driver was intrigued by my brave action in the busy street apparently- he made direct eye contact with me.

What makes this photo so fun is what you don't see in the photo. It was a super hot, muggy day here in New Jersey and everyone was drenched in sweat. We had two members of the staff on both sides of the camera, 1 photographer helping, and 1 photographer shooting. It took 3 attempts but was totally worth the sweat and final image.

Jacqueline and Michael eloped to NYC for their big day. We ran the streets for nearly 3 hours shooting iconic locations and looking for incredible light. This photo was a quick one! This is a very busy intersection behind Grand Central Station. It took several tries and perfect timing to have no pedestrians, no cars, and tons of cabs. Cheers!

What an incredible time with this lovely couple. We love to pull our couples out for a few minutes during reception time. The silos were lit up as the couple was heading back in to return to their party. They took a few seconds to dance in the dark and we took those few seconds to nail a silo silhouette!

It was November and it felt like winter! Snow was falling, winds were howling and this beautiful bride did not want to brave the cold. She was stunning inside and out and her dress was unlike any other we had seen before. She was taking a few moments to ponder over the wintery weather and we were able to show off her gorgeous silhouette. The door to the left of the bride really added a beautiful rim light to accentuate her figure.

This was taken in Upstate New York at the beautiful Inn at West Settlement. The giant glowing balls were an instant eye catcher in the barn. To the left and right were tables and staff working diligently to get things ready before letting the guests in. I laid down on the floor and exposed for the silhouette and made sure their heads were in a clean spot. A little dodging and burning and a beautiful image for the couple.

On cloud nine? Yes, this couple was! In a ballroom of this size it is often a challenge to make big moments feel intimate. There was just enough fog to create a dreamy feeling and people were invited to come closer to the dancefloor which really made it a much more dynamic photo. The guests on the bottom left really help to tie the photo together with the perfect twirl of the bride. I was located on top of the winding stairs looking down on the first dance. Cheers to our beautiful bride and groom!

This was a lot of luck mixed with a lot of love. The couple had told us there would be a fireworks display towards the end of the night and we were fully prepared with a wide angle lens and tripod. When shooting fireworks, it is important to use a remote trigger to help camera shake. We had the couple embrace, but no more words were shared after that. It can often be difficult to pull off these types of photos with no flash to freeze the couple. We were ok with a natural softness to the images and didn't want to over do it with loads of flash. The ambient light was coming from the barn behind us giving us just enough light to manually focus. We shot over 100 frames and were lucky enough to catch 2 perfect shots. Thank you to our lovely couple for trusting us!
