Manhattan Couples Session – Central Park, Flatiron – and Refinery Rooftop welcome party – Radhika + Philip – Part 1 {NYC Photographer}

Just in time for the unofficial start of summer, let’s look back at a multi-day event I had the pleasure of photographing back in December! Radhika and Philip came over from the UK to have an amazing celebration in NYC. We started by taking some photos around Central Park, and then made our way down to the Flatiron area. And then, a few hours later we met up again for their welcome party at Refinery Rooftop

At Refinery Rooftop, after some fun photos with the Empire State Building in the background, Radhika’s mom and uncle performed the Punjabi Chura ceremony, where the bride’s uncle places bangles on the bride-to-be’s hands, and then friends and family tie kaliras (traditional gold ornaments) to the bangles. This was such a special moment and such a lovely tradition to photograph!
