1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge Wedding

There’s nothing quite like the iconic view of the Manhattan skyline. Having a 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge wedding will enable you to have some of the most breathtaking views of the skyline. I recently had the pleasure of photographing my first wedding at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge. It had an incredibly unique feel to it. The chic rooms and hip restaurants provide a trendy feel for visitors looking for something different. The rooftop area, where this photo was taken, provides views of the Brooklyn bridge, Manhattan Bridge, and of course, lower Manhattan. I’ve had the chance to shoot over one thousand weddings in my career, and I’ve been to hundreds of hotels. 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge just felt different. From their food presentation to the event space, it screamed high end New York. The entire hotel is environmentally friendly, from the organic apples next to the elevator, to the water saving system throughout the buildings. They even have in-room yoga mats and cozy socks you can take home. To enhance the views, each room has windows that are floor to ceiling in length. In this image, Jenni and Amir were on the rooftop, and I timed the shot so we’d take it at dusk. This gave me an opportunity to balance the flash with the ambient light for the time of day. It was shot with my Nikon D850 and Nikkor 24-24mm F2.8G lens to give me the widest field of view. I wanted to keep the bridges in the photo, along with the lower Manhattan skyline. It was shot at 1/25th F3.5 @ ISO 320. This image would make a lovely, large print to hang on their wall. I hope to shoot many more weddings at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge asap.
