Kelly + Chris - Lost In The Greenery At Holly Hedge

Ian Shiver

A Springtime Holly Hedge Wedding in Philadelphia

"Yes, further in to the woods, guys".

Thats pretty much how my conversations went with these guys at Holly Hedge last Spring. I've maybe never been to a wedding venue with more amazing greenery, in the perfect season for it. So there's no way I was going to let them get away with not using every single piece of it. But these guys were cool with everything, and let me get away with trying lots of non-traditional ideas for the sake of art. The result? Its sorta like if Snow White got lost in the woods.... 

Below is one of my favorite songs by Julien Baker, who I've been listening to non-stop recently. Press play and take a trip in to the forest with me =)

Alex+Chris - Escape From Brooklyn (On The Ferry)

Ian Shiver

Greenpoint Ferry Brooklyn Engagement

New York is like, the best worst place on the planet. It gives you a lot, but it also takes a lot, and sometimes you need a break. One of my favorite ways to take a break when I lived there was to hop on the ferry from Greenpoint at Sunset, which is near Greenpoint Loft, one of my favorite Brooklyn wedding venues. So when Alex and Chris asked me what cool thing we should do (because they were awesome and wanted to go on an adventure) I knew exactly what the move was. Yes, I made them climb on to dangerous rocks where they got their feet entirely soaked, and yes I shot them in sketchy parking lots in the weeds... but we also had such a fun time on one of the most beautiful days of the summer. Brooklyn, you're undeniable sometimes.

Press play on this SZA track that I can't stop listening to, and try to feel the wind in your face.
