Ever After Bridal Photoshoot | Metropolitan Building, NYC

  If you’ve been following our work this past year, you’d know that we have had the honor of working with the always amazing Jen from Ever After Bridal before and when she messaged us to ask if we wanted to be the photographers to bring her next styled shoot to life, we didn’t hesitate to jump at the opportunity! And boy, our new photoshoot was the complete opposite of the previous one! The last time we worked together, the Mayflower Grace contributed a soft, pure white background to the elegant and lovely nature of the wedding gowns.
