Brooklyn natives Kally & Matthew decided on keeping everything local to the Borough - with a full traditional Greek ceremony at a Bay Ridge church, followed by a reception over-looking New York Harbor and the East River, at Stage 6 in Brooklyn.

After the ceremony, we took the entire wedding party down to the pier below the Broklyn Bridge for some fun portraits with the dramatic New York skyline as a backdrop. After sending everyone back to the limos, we stayed with the couple and got some really romantic shots of them walking hand-in-hand towards us and away from us. One of them gazing out at the Bridge and Manhattan is a favorite.

The reception was at Stage 6, which is part of an active movie & television studio and sound stage. The couple got out of their vintgae limo and entered their wedding on a red carpet, so we got some cool shots of their arrival. The planner was the wonderful Sofia Crokos of
 Sofia Crokos Events and her team created a fabulous, dramatic room, with seating arrangements hanging from a huge tree, for guests to pluck their names from !

Cocktails were overlooking the water on their huge deck as the sun set. The festivities kicked in with toasts. As 4Eyes is a team, we both shoot, so one of us is able to focus on the 'toaster' and the other can shoot the couples & guests we got some really genuine, emotional images.

The Greek heritage took over again, with guests & Uncles & the couple's father's trying to out-do each other on the dance floor - dancing with arms in the air & bending to slap the floor in time with the band ! We got some great shots of the brides father running around the dance floor propelling $1 bills into the air from a massive wad of cash. It's a Greek tradition to throw money at the couple in staff had to sweep up the money into huge piles, as it was all over the floor! The band gets to keep the they played all the harder throughout the night as the pile grew.

A spectacular firework display ended the evening in style !

Some of the images we took are shortlisted for New York Magazine's upcoming issue on amazing New York City weddings, so look out for that.

The couple loved the images and we'll be shooting Kally's sisters' wedding in The Hampton's later this year, in a vineyard that will be doubling for a Greek hillside ! Can't wait....


When Danish real estate developer Morten,  met Norweign make-up artist Sissel in New York City they quickly discovered they had more than their European roots in common !
After deciding to marry, they chose neutral ground for their destination wedding, booking a mansion on a Lake in Kragga, in the Swedish countryside. It was a  lavish, international  wedding, with guests from all over Europe, South America & The States -  including a Norweign television celebrity and runner-up in the Miss Universe competition !
The couple married in a beautiful ancient stone church in the lush green Swedish countryside, then to a cocktail hour by the lake,  before a tented reception on the grounds.
Leaning heavily on the traditions of their native countries, this was a very unusual wedding for 4Eyes. For starters, married guests were seated at separate tables ( although engaged couples could sit together ! ) There were at least a dozen speeches ( in either Norweign or Danish ) during which absolute silence was observed, which took several hours.
 If the groom left the table at any point, every man in the room would line up and kiss the bride ( and likewise for the groom, if the bride left !) Also, if everyone tapped their glasses the bride and groom had to stand on  their chairs and kiss. If guests stamped their feet, the bride & groom were obliged to get under the table and kiss !
After speeches the music came on, the dancing began and the wedding began to resemble an American event. We were able to move around more freely and capture the atmosphere & details of the wedding and even managed to get the couple outside for some cool moon-lit shots by the lake.
This being Summer in Sweden, we were treated to the phenomenum of the White Nights - where the Sun doesn't really set, so it seems like it's around 6pm in the evening but it's really 3am ! The celebration went strong long after the cake was cut......culminating with one last tradition. The groom was hoisted in the air by his groomsmen and his socks were cut off. Nobody had a satisfactory explanation for that one !
