The William Vale Hotel was the first venue that Julie and Jason toured for their wedding, and it checked all of their boxes. With most of their guests being from out of town, the William Vale’s location at 111 N 12th Street in Williamsburg, Brooklyn was the perfect place that felt accessible, easy, yet still a part of New York. The soaring views of New York City from the hotel rooftop are the exact feeling of touching down at LaGuardia Airport – just a true sense of excitement and love for New York.

Their inspiration for the wedding was “us” – cozy, comfortable, creative, and filled with love. The florals by Stems Brooklyn were inspired by the same flowers that the couple bought every weekend from their local farmer’s market. The food was served family-style to create a communal feel, even in The William Vale Hotel’s large ballroom space for weddings with over 170 guests.

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; you don't just want your picture taken, you want your memories preserved.

Welcome to the party! I’m Katherine Marchand.
