Like Alex and Max’s wedding, I’m very fortunate to do what I do for a living. I get to shoot all types of cultural and destination weddings and this was no exception. Alex and Max’s wedding or ‘Malex’ as we now fondly call them was a Jewish ceremony at the Onmi Riverway in Houston on the last Saturday of March 2013.
We start as guests gathered at The Omni and the rehearsal dinner at the historical Sam Houston Hotel’s Veranada room (that’s the first picture below). I first met Alex and Max over Skype almost a year ago and after that knew I wanted to shoot their special day. Last summer, I was fortunate to fly into Newark and photographer their engagement session, shot over two days around Brooklyn and New York City. Part one is here and part two here. The party went late into the early hours and was, well, crazy crazy crazy. If you were there, then you know what I mean! My other English partner in crime, aka, second photographer was Adam Swift who flew in from La La Land, so thanks to him for coming along for the ride. We have worked together many times before and are available as a team for any destination wedding around the world.
Alex and Max are an amazing couple to work with and I thoroughly enjoyed working with them including Alex’s mom, Susan throughout the process. They both complement each others personalities perfectly and I’m looking forward to seeing their story evolve in the future.
