MELVILLE, NY – On June 4 and June 5, Nikon will bring the Nikon Wedding Truck Studio to New York City Hall (Office of the City Clerk), offering couples getting married the timeless keepsake of amazing images to help commemorate the start of the next chapter in their story together. Nikon is working with famous photographer and Nikon Ambassador Joe McNally to convert a truck into a fully functional photo studio, where couples getting married at the Office of the City Clerk that week are invited to get a professional portrait session at no cost.

"One of the most memorable and marvelous experiences l have had was capturing the wedding of my friends getting married at City Hall. People of all types were  there to announce and share with the world that this was their beloved," said McNally "Working with Nikon to  bring this pop-up studio to life gives us a chance to celebrate this real emotion and provide couples with a stunning set of wedding photos to help remember their special day."

The Nikon Wedding Truck Studio is part of Nikon's "I AM Generation Image" Campaign, which inspires people to make their stories stand out through incredible imagery. Nikon will provide participating couples with high-quality portraits to keep and share with friends and family to remember their wedding day. McNally will be shooting with the Nikon D750 DSLR camera, NIKKOR lenses and Nikon Speedlights, giving couples the highest quality images as wedding-day keepsakes.

"A wedding is a joyous occasion and deserves to be documented, so that our children and grandchildren can experience the happiness and true emotions of a couple's special day. High-quality images help to re-tell the story of that day to later generations, as if they were actually there," said Lisa Baxt, Associate General Manager of Communications, Nikon Inc. "With the help of amazing images captured by Joe McNally, these newlyweds will receive beautiful images that will stand the test of time."

The event will take place on June 4 and June 5 outside of the Office of the City Clerk, near 141 Worth Street in New York City. The portrait sessions will be free of charge, provided on a first come-first serve basis. Couples will leave with their images so that they can be shared with their loved ones.

Participating couples must have a valid New York State marriage certificate validating that they were married at City Hall during the week of June 1 to June 5 2015.
