From photographer Gabriel Fredericks of Philip Gabriel Photography:

We wanted to create a dramatic setting for Jennifer and John’s first glance, so we decided to use City Hall as the backdrop.

John came up to Jennifer from behind—which she wasn’t expecting, and was sweetly surprised when he appeared behind her. We wanted them to have some privacy and to be able to share their first glance intimately, though, so we decided to shoot it with a long lens from a distance.
