Sue and Ryan’s Wedding at the Boston Public Library!

The nerd heart in me skipped a beat when Sue and Ryan approached me about photographing their wedding at the magnificent Boston Public Library. Sue chose the Boston Public Library as she’d spent a lot of time there when she was in Boston. It’s been a pleasure working with them, even remotely – Sue and Ryan met in New York City and moved to San Francisco and planned their wedding from there. Sue and Ryan were the first couple with whom I conducted consults via video chat! This wedding is chock full of autumn-inspired details, apologies to those with slow internet connections, but it’s totally worth the read!

Sue and Ryan work in the creative industry, so of course, designed their elegant invitation suite that used iconic images inspired by the BPL

Thanks you two for such a great evening, and congratulations!!
