Danya + Cornelius // City Hall Elopement, NYC
Sometimes I get the opportunity to photograph two people who's love is burning so bright that each interaction could set the world on fire. Danya + Cornelius are straight up magic. Just listen to this:
Their Love Story: "We met for the first time 10 years ago on a rooftop in Hanoi, Vietnam. It was summer, hot and humid. I came from Malaysia and Danya from Vienna and we both did a summer study program in Vietnam. It was an exciting time full of discoveries and enjoyment. From there our lives led us to Vienna, London, New York and Washington, DC. I kind of knew we would always be together. When Danya gathered to try to catch the bouquet at her cousin's wedding I observed her and thought... "no need to catch the bouquet, I'm going to marry you no matter what".
We started out in the early morning, took a walk around Tribeca, and ended up at City Hall, where we met their friends + family. Later, we celebrated together over an intimate dinner at Fada Restaurant in Brooklyn, with many touching moments and emotional speeches.
