Nick + Mina - Material Culture

Ian Shiver

Nick and Mina were the first New York couple I ever shot, really the first adult New York couple I'd spent any time with. We met for the first time at a small restaurant in Williamsburg, and shared a meal while getting to know each other a lot better. It felt really great to connect with a couple - Nick and I had a ton in common with music and books, and Mina was wonderfully smart and easy to get along with. I remember leaving that meeting feeling lucky. For their wedding day, they made a zine sharing stories about themselves and each other, it was just as funny and honest as they are in life. Material Culture was a dream to shoot at, and their very talented friend playing and singing for their first dance was truly a thing to witness.

I also shared a very funny story about this wedding with Rangefinder Magazine, and talked about my experiences - check out the feature here.
