As a wedding photographer, we have years of experience shooting various locations and venues in the New York Metro Area (literally – we’ve photographed over 300 weddings!). When navigating the wedding planning process, it can be so difficult to figure out venues, vendors, logistics, and budgets. That being said, we thought it would be helpful to give some information based on our experience photographing weddings at The Foundry. See all the details below!
The Foundry is located in the heart of Long Island City at 42-38 Ninth Street, with gorgeous views overlooking New York City. Originally a 19th century metal factory, this raw space features stunning architecture with soaring ceilings and original features. The multitude of spaces from the outdoor courtyard, garden rooftop, and interior mezzanine gives you flexibility to design your wedding as you wish. It is an incredible backdrop to host all your guests, whether locals or out-of-towners.
If you're looking for an alternative New York City venue that gives you the flexibility to design the wedding of your dreams, look no further than The Foundry. The raw space allows you to choose your own caterer, florist, rentals, and more to create a truly unique event. But not to worry, their industrial kitchen has plenty of prep space - and is even included in the rental price.
The Foundry holds up to 180 guests for a seated ceremony, and up to 165 guests for a seated outside dinner. You can seamlessly transition from an outside ceremony to cocktails to dinner, transitioning from industrial to elegant depending on the space of you choice.
The experienced team at The Foundry is truly one-of-a-kind. They will connect you with the best vendors and make recommendations for what they've seen work well at past events. Several people from their staff will be on-site the day of your wedding to ensure everything runs smoothly without worry, and answer any of your guests' questions.
While the flowers may fade, the guests may go home, and your gown goes into the closet….your photos are the one thing from your wedding that holds its value. It’s not just about having someone with a professional camera to come and simply document your wedding.
You don’t want to scroll back through your photos and think “Yup, that’s what the day looked like.” You want to hold your photos in your hands and say, “This is what the day felt like.”
Investing in a photographer that can truly capture the ambience and love in your day. From the in-between candid moments between you and your partner to the laughs of your college best friends during the cocktail hour, every moment matters. A photographer who can not only capture these memories but also make you feel at ease and comfortable is the best investment you can make.
