A New York City Wedding | Kelly + Jason

Kelly and Jason were married on a Sunday at the Holy Trinity Roman Catholic church near Central Park. It was hot, for May, but if you ask me, any day is a good day to get married. The church was very lovely, and from a photographic standpoint, very dark inside. Because I wasn’t Kelly and Jason’s official photographer, I certainly didn’t want to be an “Uncle Bob” (that friend/relative with all the photo gear that always gets in the way), so I sat in the back of the church like a good little girl and tried to think of creative things to do in very low light with no flash and no tripod. Whee!


After a lovely ceremony – the first Catholic wedding mass I’ve attended – all of us guests were treated to a personalized tour of New York City on one of those sweet double-decker buses. In addition to taking us all around the city, we visited places that were special to Kelly and Jason… his first apartment, her first apartment, where they now live, their favorite frozen yogurt place, etc. But our journey was fraught with danger and peril: This personalized route took us up and down streets not designed for a high-clearance bus and on several occasions we found ourselves ducking in our seats to avoid tree branches. I even got smacked across the face while trying to line up a shot!

While we made our way by bus, Kelly and Jason took a real, old-skool New York taxicab.


The reception was held at the prestigious Yale Club. After a cocktail hour in the library, we enjoyed dinner and dancing on the top floor, with great views of Grand Central and the New York skyline. What a perfect introduction to a fabulous city!

Hannah - Hi Kathryn – welcome to Fledgling Photographers! These photos are really gorgeous – I looked at the pictures before reading (I have a bad habit of getting straight to the fun bit and then reading after) and I was really shocked to see you weren’t the pro-photographer! You are very talented and obviously have your technique DOWN! Wonderful shoot.

Shell - Welcome to the photog group! It’s always great to have another friend! And these photos are great! I can’t wait to see more πŸ˜€

Anna Mae - Hey Kathryn! Welcome to Fledgings! Although you’re probably well on your way to being called a PRO instead of a fledging (like me). Your photos are absolutely amazing! I’m going to enjoy blog stalking you. πŸ™‚

:::Lyzz::: - I loved your wedding during the Weddingbee days. Love the expansion into wedding photography and you’re doing a great job it looks like.

angie - These photos are just beautiful. I love the perspective of the picture of the taxi cab, and the first picture is just gorgeous. I’m just getting started learning more about the technicals of photography, and getting my old film SLR to cooperate with me. Once I get a bit better, I hope to join the fledging photographers as well. For now, I’ll just lurk and comment. πŸ™‚

Kat Forsyth - Wow, these are amazing! No one would ever have thought you were Uncle Bobbing this. They look like pro pics – which you totally are! (A pro pic taker, that is. Not a pro pic yourself. :P)

Liz - These are fabulous!!

CaitStClair - Wow Kat! These are amazing! They look incredibly professional! Want to come be the unofficial photographer at my Colorado wedding (which has turned into an homage to your wedding?) πŸ˜‰

Kat - Thanks so much, guys! I’m happy to be a part of the FP blogroll group. I look forward to getting to know you all. Yay!

Kat - Cait- Hey, I wouldn’t mind coming to photograph your wedding, particularly if it’s an homage! πŸ˜‰ I’m pretty sure you were joking, but if you’re serious, email me… kat(at) and let me know more details!

Rachel - Me liek photo site! I love the images from the wedding and all the rest. Lovely! When you wanna do some boudoir and doggy shoots (not at the same time lols)?
