THE LOW DOWN
photography & cinematography for the rebels, misfits, and crazy-in-love ones
Weddings are a funny thing. We dress up love in rose pedals and vintage lace, with a dash of red velvet on the side. It's almost as if two people dedicating their lives to one another isn't enough of a centerpiece on its own. Don't get us wrong. We love all the details. But more than anything we live for those stripped-back moments where the only thing that shines through is love.
We hope you don't mind us capturing those moments when you think no one is looking. It's just, those are the moments we want you to have forever.

Born in sunny California, Alice’s lust for life brought her to New York City where she’s found her creative haven. Dashingly witty and lively, Alice moonlights as an improv performer all over the city, while secretly looking for New York’s greatest taco. If you get cold on your wedding day, she’s the type of person to give you the sweater off her own back with a charm and kindness you won’t be able to refuse. Her love for binge-worthy TV and slice-of-life cinema only contribute to the artistry and craft she puts into her filmmaking.

Like every piece of fine art, Jennifer’s images will stop you dead in your tracks. Perhaps it’s because she’s spent years as a wedding photographer cultivating her nontraditional and documentarian style. Or perhaps it’s because she’s an aspiring architect, a student of aesthetic, studying to get her master’s as we speak. But at its core, maybe it’s just because she’s got a deep soul that gives a damn about true human connection - the type of soul that loves early mornings, all things books, and sweet potatoes. Yeah, I think that’s it.
~ studio manager ~
After moving from California and living in New York for nine years, Kait has learned a thing or two about getting stuff done. Part photographer, part producer, part planner, she’s a modern day wedding sphinx who will work with you every step of the way and even tuck you into bed at night - she’s just that nice. When she’s not busy effortlessly solving every wedding problem in the Tri-state area, you can find her at a local Brooklyn park soaking in the sun and petting all of the dogs.
Ryan & Heidi
~ owners / creative directors ~
The creative virtuosos over at Forged in the North, Ryan & Heidi have taken their years of wedding expertise to build After It All. Having worked with some of the most outstanding talent in the industry, they wanted a place where they could gather the best of the best to capture love and create art you’ll want to hang on your wall. Like all loving parents, Ryan & Heidi carefully oversee and pour their love and craft into all the work that After It All produces with a level of dedication evident in every photo and video.
