If you’re a lover of fashion and all things pink, you’re going to obsess over this edgy, chic bridal shower in Chinatown. Hosted by the bride’s sisters at the iconic Peachy’s in New York City, this bridal bash was a VIBE. Shaking things up with a Thursday night invite and requests for donations to the bride’s favorite charity in lieu of gifts, this was a bridal shower that defiantly broke the mold. The night was capped off with a fun couples session of the soon-to-be newlyweds and childhood sweethearts.

Instead of the usual spiel, let me give you the real scoop on what I do and why it might just be what you're looking for in your wedding photographer.

My approach? It’s all about capturing the raw, unfiltered joy and those blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moments. I believe in photography that tells a story - your story - with all its unique quirks, laughter, and, of course, love.

I’m talking about the tearful smiles, the spontaneous dances, and the silent glances that speak volumes. My style is a blend of candid documentary and artistic flair, ensuring each photo feels as real and vibrant as the moment it captures. I don't just take pictures; I preserve memories.

Welcome to the party! I’m Katherine Marchand.
