I have been lucky enough to work with Zia O’Hara on a few occasions and a few times it has been at the Harold Pratt Mansion more commonly known as the Council of Foreign Relations. I recommended Zia for a wedding where the client wanted someone unobtrusive, she didn’t want to see the photographer all night and ” have them in her face”. Well Zia is so good my client asked if she was there and did she get any photos! Needless to say she was, she did and the client was very happy. Zia was nice enough to prepare a montage of photographs of two jobs we did together. One of them featured in The Knot Magazine!
Council on Foreign Relations is one of my favorite old world venues, with its tremendous old world charm it is inherently beautiful and maintained beautifully. I have done many jobs there, including a wedding with the 6 foot red ostrich feather place card table arrangement to more modest decor for several corporate clients.
