This Brooklyn Wedding took place at Berg’n, a beer garden and food hall in Crown Heights.
Karen and Stephen rented two separate apartments through Airbnb where they stayed and got ready with family and friends. My first stop was at Stephen’s place for some quick photos of him getting ready. Then I drove down to Karen for some last minute touch ups and her getting dressed. After that I jumped into a cab with Karen and her bridesmaids and made our way over to Prospect park where we did their first look and all of the formal portraits.
With all that taken care of it was another quick cab ride to their venue for the main event! the ceremony. Berg’n is a great spot, especially in the summertime as you have this great courtyard as well as a private room for all the dancing. They also had the ceremony inside but most of the eating and mingling took place in the courtyard. Besides having a great beer selection they also have a great variety of food which was very important to them but especially Stephen as he works in the restaurant business.
There was some coordinating required for the first part of the day but it was still all very laid back. At the end of this post I haven Karen describe her experience in her own words.
Here is Karen in her own words:
“Konrad exceeded our expectations. He came highly recommended by a friend and we were really glad we chose him. It was a simple Brooklyn wedding and we didn’t want to be tied down by a photographer getting shots of us the whole time and so we were 50/50 on getting a photographer. After meeting with him few months before the wedding, he put our worries at ease. Through the whole process leading up to the wedding day, he followed up to ensure that he had all the information he needed for our event and our timeline.
The day of the event, Konrad was phenomenal! He did more than what a bride would hope from a photographer! He took the photos he needed without being intrusive, sorta like a fly on the wall as he called it, kept us on time and on schedule without putting unnecessary pressure, and kept my family and the bridal party entertained through the whole process. When it came time to take the group pics I have requested, he was concise and executed the line up as I instructed. My groom, I, all my family and guests really loved him and enjoyed his company and jokes during our wedding.
I would highly recommend Konrad! He is professional, talented and a real class act. He came on time to our meeting and to our wedding event, followed directions very well, and delivered our photos very fast. He took great pics and even more amazing candid shots during our wedding that really captured all the feels and how much fun everyone was having on our very special day. Thank you so much Konrad!!”
