New York Botanical Garden Wedding Photographer | NYBG Wedding Photos

The New York Botanical Garden is one of my absolute favorite venues to photograph weddings.

As a nature lover,  it is a dream to photograph a wedding at NYBG,  as there are endless backdrops to work with that look beautiful in any season.

The New York Botanical Gardens is now a National Historic Landmark containing over one million plants as well as the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, a Victorian-style Greenhouse.

When Caitlin and Robert contacted me to photograph their wedding, I was especially excited because the world renowned sculptor;  Dale Chihuly’s glass art was being featured throughout the gardens.

Further, one of the first things Caitlin told me was that she would be wearing a cape.

I had never photographed a bride wearing a wedding cape before and I hope this time will not be my last.

I was smitten with it. Her wedding dress ensemble with the cape was stunning, unique and a lot of fun to photograph – fitting her and her personality perfectly.

Sharing some of my favorites from their special day.

As an animal lover and pet owner, I totally understand this.

Chase was either sitting on Cait’s lap, following her around or staring at her with goo goo eyes from a distance the whole morning.

Both Moms, along with Caitlin’s Dad and bridesmaid worked really hard to steam/iron out the wrinkles of her wedding dress and cape.

I love Robert’s jaw dropping expression upon seeing his beautiful bride.

Caitlin and Robert wanted their family and bridal party present for their first look.

I asked if they would consider not using their Cell phones. I am so glad that everyone agreed.

Had everyone used their cell phones I would not have been able to capture their reactions being present in the moment.

I love their emotional expressions in the background, much better than staring at an electronic device.

The staff at The New York Botanical Gardens are wonderful too.

They took us around in a golf cart to photograph the bride and groom in various niches.

Here, Dale Chihuly’s Red Reeds on Logs and Blown Glass on Wooden Boats.
