Although Soo & Paul had set plans to jet off to Korea for a traditional wedding, Soo could not stop dreaming of a bohemian garden wedding in one of her favorite places on earth: the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Then the brilliant idea hit her. Why can’t I have both?! So plans were set in motion and I felt so lucky that she chose me to document such a fun day. Without the pressures of a wedding, we frolicked all over the Brooklyn Botanic one morning in August.
We were able to capture three very distinct moments that I wanted to share in three separate posts. First up, Soo & Paul dashed to meet me exactly when the gates opened. We were early for our appointment (you have to schedule a time to take photos with a permit) so this first set of images is actually right outside the front gates! The light was reflecting beautifully off the gift shop window panes in the background and since I am not one for wasting great light or in-between time, I documented Soo & Paul’s “getting ready” details right there and then. Seriously, if you have great light the magic can happen just about anywhere!
