Wedding at 501 Union

Wedding at 501 Union

Who? : Jill + David

What? : Preparations at home and a downtown Brooklyn hotel.  Portraits at Brooklyn Bridge Park. Ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at a wedding venue in Gowanus.

Where?  501 Union

When? : October 2018

Family.  Family is everything.  To watch Jill and David with their families is to watch true joy, true love, and true community.  From David’s brilliant daughters to Jill’s dads walking her down the aisle together, heartfelt toasts to oh no, I’m crying again, thanks David vows, the entire day was extraordinarily moving, welcoming  and nearly explosive with joy.

It’s often hard to put wedding days into words.  I get to witness amazing things and amazing people, week in and week out.  Some people, however, radiate a little extra light into the world.  Jill and David are two such people.  As I took mental notes during the day so I could remember the event, the people, and what in the world I could say in a blog post later, things like David is an extraordinary father and I just want to hug Jill so hard every time she smiles kept imprinting themselves on my mind.  These two – they are completely special human beings.  You know what I mean – those people that just turn the lights up in the room when they walk in, push the frequency to a warmer level, the ones you just have to know and how amazing these families found each other and can I get myself invited to their next party?

During his vows, David told Jill to look at the people around them, naming how special each person was.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the house, mine included.  I hope the both of them keep looking around, and at each other, for the rest of their lives.  How loved they are.

Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding


I started my day at David and Jill’s house, where David got ready with some people very near and dear to his heart.  David has two daughters who are absolute miracles, and they then traveled to the hotel to meet up with Jill while she got ready.

Jill got ready at a Hampton Inn near Brooklyn Bridge Park that I would gladly move into tomorrow. You could fit my entire apartment into the gorgeous living room of her suite.


Daisy and Jamie are amazing girls. It really was a huge honor to capture the moments of each of them throughout the day. My daughters were by my side when I married my husband, and looking back on the images of them is one of my favorite things about our wedding pictures.

Then it was time to get Jill ready – which means all hands on deck!

Pro tip : If you’re getting ready surrounded by those you love, let’s get them dressed first.  Set aside some time in your timeline for them to get ready – your mom, aunt, sister, dad, grandmother, man of honor, best friend, whoever is going to help you get dressed.  That way they’ll be all ready while you get ready!

After Jill got dressed, it was time for her and David to see each other for the first time.  After battling with some very weirdly complicated sliding glass doors (We think they were sliding?  Or maybe they opened out?  They were weird, and baffled several intelligent adults completely!), they saw each other on the glassed-in balcony of their hotel.

Jill and David opted to give each other gifts at their first look, which I loved.  Many couples exchange gifts the morning of their wedding, but this way they got to see the other’s reaction in person!

After the first look and gift exchange, it was off to Brooklyn Bridge Park for a few moments for some portraits.

Then we hopped in Uber’s and settled in at 501 Union.  We took some family pictures, Jill and David got a much-needed break, and guests started arriving. I love this image of the 501 Union team making sure the flowers were misty fresh – see the water droplets in the air?

David’s girls walked down the aisle after him.  They’re amazing women – and how could they not be?  David is a simply magnificent, kind, loving father.

There are moments at every wedding that just stick.  This was one of those moments.  David’s girls grabbed each other’s hands as the ceremony started, and didn’t let go until it was over.

This ceremony.  THIS.  CEREMONY.  I know the phrase “Not a dry eye in the house” gets used a lot in reference to weddings, but it was so true.  David’s vows. Jill’s vows.  The tears and emotion.  The prayer circle around their rings.  The love, the family.  This was everything. After the ceremony it was time to drink, dance, and hug hug hug.  The guests wandered through the bar area of 501 Union, we took some more family pictures, documented the hugging during cocktail hour, and took some pictures of the truly exceptional decor in the reception space.

What comes after cocktail hour?  OH RIGHT.  The PARTY.

Jill’s dad and stepdad gave a toast together.  What a family.  I know I keep saying that, but it’s so purely true.  The love in that room was a vibrant thing. After dancing with her dads, Jill danced with her mom.  I loved how beautiful these moments were. Jill and David cut their cake, then presented an anniversary cake to David’s parents. We closed the night out with a few more portraits at 501 Union. Jill and David, thank you for having me to document your gorgeous day for you!

Wedding at the Sleepy Hollow Country Club

Wedding at the Sleepy Hollow Country Club

Who? : Casey + Jack

What? : Preparations, first look, portraits, cocktail hour, and reception at a turn of the century manor house in Sleepy Hollow, New York.  Ceremony at a nearby church.

Where?  The Sleepy Hollow Country Club

When? : October 2018

I first met Jack and Casey via an email from Jack’s mother that read : “We heard about your and your marvelous photography from our friends.”  It’s always excellent to begin that way, when a past client hands my name over, knowing that I’m going to take care of their loved ones and that we’ll be a great fit together.  And we were, right from the start.  Jack and Casey are from amazing families, with warm, incredible mothers, fantastic fathers, and a sprawl of siblings, cousins, and friends that surround them with so much love that you can’t remember where friend stops and family begins.

Their wedding was on a fall day so clear and bright, and so full of light that it was only inevitable that it slide towards the most flawless of orange sunsets and end in a blaze of sparklers on the steps of the club.  Jack and Casey, thank you for being bright, amazing human beings and bringing me into your day.  Documenting it for you was as much of a treat as the gorgeous cool weather!

Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding:

sleepy hollow country club bride getting ready
Casey got ready in one of the rooms at the club. These rooms aren’t just rooms, they’re little kingdoms full of direct beams of light, high ceilings, and magic. I can’t imagine a more gorgeous, fitting space to get ready for a wedding than at the club itself. I mean, LOOK at that LIGHT. (And that gorgeous woman, too!)
sleepy hollow country club groom getting ready room
Not to be outdone, Jack had his one room one floor up to get ready in. Unsurprisingly, he also had some pretty perfect sunshine.
sleepy hollow country club guest rooms
It’s October. I’ve been on a horror movie kick, and nothing has been creeping me out (and amazing me) quite like the new Haunting of Hill House on Netflix. When I saw the praying statue, I knew I had a great element to add to the already-awesome shot of Casey getting her lips touched up. Someone to watch over us indeed, am I right?
sleepy hollow country club pictures
Casey’s hair was PERFECT. Smooth and sleek, but with boho braids to lighten the look.

Light, light, light. You know I love it. It was everywhere, around every corner, in front of every perfectly placed window. Seeing moments come to life in that setting was nothing short of completely magical.
sleepy hollow country club first look location
“Some people like to do their first look on the stairs,” someone at the venue told me. I am pretty sure they suggested a few other spots, but it was all white noise once my eyes locked on this staircase. Drenched in directional light, warm and welcoming, where better to lay eyes on your loved one for the first time on your wedding day? Hi, drama.

Then it was time for a quick stroll around the grounds of the club for some images pre-ceremony.

Sometimes weddings are crazy, sometimes they’re calm. No matter how the day is flowing (and this one flowed with extreme peace and ease!), I always try to take time to do that little something EXTRA. This day’s extra was brought to you by arching trees, a bright sky, and a little in-camera double exposure action.

The most insanely cinematic beam of light burst through the stained glass windows the second the door opened on Casey and her father.

After the ceremony Jack and Casey hopped in her mom’s red convertible, put the top down, and sped off towards the cocktail hour, Casey’s bouquet waving in the air.
sleepy hollow country club cocktail hour location
Cocktail hour sprawled across the lawn behind the club – I LOVE these two men chatting, oblivious to the fact that a overexcited photographer was insanely grinning from the back steps over the symmetry, the light, and the shadows behind them.

A quick sunset shot? Don’t mind if I do.

…and a few more portraits of Casey? Yes, please. Jack’s mother had requested an image of Casey on the stairs, and I was only too happy to oblige.
sleepy hollow country club reception tent
The reception took place on the back lawn, under a tent. The sun set directly through the clear sides of the tent, bathing the tables in the warmest of light.
sleepy hollow country club reception decor
Jack and Casey had a choreographed first dance. They’re great dancers, this is true. But what really stays with me, even now, is how HAPPY they were, how lively, how cheerfully overjoyed. THAT makes a great first dance.

After a lively first dance, it was time for two pretttttty spectacular parent dances.

…and then it was time to party!
sleepy hollow country club sparkler exit
When it was time to set up for the sparkler exit, we were dismayed to see that it had started drizzling. Who was going to want to go out in THAT for a sparkler exit? Turns out? EVERYONE.

Good night and good bye, what a gorgeous ending to the first truly fall wedding of the year. Crisp light, crisp weather, incredible people, an amazing party – let’s do it again next year y’all, okay? One year anniversary party? Just name the place, I’ll be there.

What? : Preparations, ceremony, and reception in a private Vermont barn wedding venue

Where?  Riverside Farm, Pittsfield, Vermont

When? : October 2018

A bride who has dedicated her career to caring for others, loves museums, and finds joy in travel.  A groom who dreams of owning his own BBQ restaurant and loves mountain bikes, backpacking, and camping.  Add these two amazing human beings together, bind their love with an unwavering faith, and pledge forever to each other with an engagement amidst the bluebonnets.    It’s only fitting that such joyous human beings say “I do” under the flawless Vermont fall foliage, surrounded by an unseasonably warm day that can only have been brought with them from Texas!  Anna Lee and Bill,  you’re both glorious rays of sunny Texas sunshine.  Thank you for making that fall Vermont day all the brighter!

Tribeca Rooftop Wedding

Tribeca Rooftop Wedding

Who? : Jessica + Simon

What? : Preparations at the Dominick Hotel, portraits at Teardrop Park, ceremony and reception indoors at a Manhattan loft venue

Where? Tribeca Rooftop, Manhattan, New York

When? : September 2018

The favors at Jessica and Simon’s Manhattan wedding reception were unique : information about the animal rescue effort with Best Friends Animal Society.  It’s that kind gesture, that deep love of animals and each other, that set the tone for this dreamy, rainy NYC wedding day.  From their sweet first look (puppy included!) at Teardrop Park to running from raindrops, this entire day was full of enough light and warmth to brighten up even the rainiest of days.  Notable charming moments include their incredibly personal ceremony, exiting as husband and wife to a cascade of bubbles, nighttime portraits on the roof, and the kindest of speeches.  Jessica and Simon, thanks for braving the rain, bubbles, and the roof with me!  It was an honor to capture your love!

Riverside Farm Wedding

Riverside Farm Wedding

Who? : Stephanie + Austin

What? : Preparations, ceremony, and reception at a farm and barn venue in Vermont

Where? Riverside Farm, Pittsfield, Vermont

When? : September 2018

It’s hard to tell precisely the second I fell super hard for these two.  Was it when Stephanie revealed that she had a competitive streak so wide that she had to give the actual best gift ever to her bridesmaids?  Was it when Austin cut off the end of his tie because it was too long?  The moment Austin revealed his past as a child sports drink model?  When Stephanie’s sister sang their first dance song?  When Stephanie’s father gave a speech so extraordinary that everyone was wiping away tears?  Maybe the moment when Stephanie and Austin caught me weeping (just a bit, I swear) as they came back down the aisle and loudly questioned “IS SUSAN CRYING?”

It was all of those moments, and so many more, that revealed how amazing this couple is, how beloved they are by family and friends, and how wonderfully vibrant the air around them is.  It was a joy to spend the day with them and their amazing families, and a huge honor to capture these images for them.

Elopement at Brooklyn Bridge Park

Elopement at Brooklyn Bridge Park

Who? : Colleen + Eddie + Lyza

What? : Portraits in Brooklyn Bridge Park

Where? Brooklyn Bridge Park, DUMBO

When? : September 2018

I love New York.  I love everything about it : the noise, the hustle, the people, the extraordinary vibrancy of such an alive city.  Therefore it also stands to reason that I love it when people come to New York specifically to be married.  Colleen and Eddie came to New York from Cairns, Australia to be wed, bringing with them their extraordinary daughter Lyza.  It was a huge honor to spend the afternoon with them in my favorite part of the city, creating portraits for them to commemorate this incredible occasion.

Where? 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

When? : September 2018

As a decade-long resident of Brooklyn, it’s no secret that this borough is my favorite.  If I had to narrow down my favorite places in incredible Brooklyn, Brooklyn Bridge Park would almost always come out on top.  I love the gorgeous views of the Manhattan skyline, the too-numerous-to-count locations for wedding and engagement portraits, and the amazing neighborhood that continues to grow and thrive.  What better place to have a wedding?  Add to this awesome spot two marvelous human beings, a team of tremendous vendors, and an immeasurable sweetness and you’ve got the perfect summer wedding.

Who? : Nicole + Michael

What? : Ceremony by Bow Bridge in Central Park, portraits in in Central Park, at Top of the Rock, and in DUMBO, Brooklyn.

Where? All over Manhattan and Brooklyn!

When? : September 2018

From their sweet, heartfelt waterside Central Park ceremony to snuggling by the water in Brooklyn at sunset, Nicole and Michael’s New York elopement was everything you’d want an intimate wedding to be.  Take a little charm, mix it with a dreamy cloudy day, and add a dash of morbid anatomy and well, I’d follow these two anywhere.

Where?  The Westin Philadelphia

When? : September 2018

Some people are just…joy.  They radiate light, happiness, that intangible exquisite nature that makes up good people.  You can see it in their eyes.  In how they speak to you and to the world around them. You can see it when their family and friends look at them.  You can tell by the joy that surrounds them on their wedding day.  Both Rachel and Brandon are that kind of good people.  From Rachel singing Once On This Island while putting on her wedding dress to the way Brandon touched her face when he arrived at her bedeken, the entire day was full of moments that simply brought tears to your eyes.  It was a joy to witness, to feel that love, and to document these moments for them and their incredible, incredible families.

What? : Preparations in Bridgehampton at a private home, ceremony on the beach, and reception in a beachside club

Where?  The Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club

When? : September 2018

When you envision a wedding on the beach, you wish for certain things.  A clear, sunny day with brilliant clouds.  A quiet beach.  Amazing food, shared with your family and friends.  A dance party that spills out onto a back deck, the surf crashing in the distance.  Maybe even a bonfire to end the night, if that’s not asking too much?  Casey and David got all of that and so much more for their wedding weekend!  Labor Day weekend in the Hamptons is always special, and this one was no exception.  From the quiet charm of their summer home, to the warmth of their families,  to the fire dancers on the beach in the early hours of the morning, this Bridgehampton wedding was everything a beach wedding should be!

Ocean Place Resort and Spa Wedding

Who? : Hiral + Shubhadeep

What? : A gorgeous full Indian wedding day at an oceanside resort in New Jersey

Where? Ocean Place Resort and Spa, Long Branch, New Jersey

When? : August 2018

I started my business photographing weddings at the beach.  I photographed up and down the Florida coast, and when I moved to New York, I missed those days by the ocean.  Every wedding at the beach makes my heart full and happy, and it’s especially wonderful when the couple getting married is as warm and vibrant as their surroundings.  Hiral and Shub planned a day full of colored smoke, dancing, singing, love, laughter, toasts that literally defied gravity, and a dance party that went on well into the night.  It was an honor to spend this day at the beach with the two of them and their amazing families and friends!

Combine my favorite rooftop venue, two gorgeous human beings, some of my favorite past clients ever, a sunset so delicious and cool that I swear fall is right around the corner, and a dance party with the Manhattan skyline behind it and you get Cristina and Daniel’s evening at the Gramercy Park Hotel.  Full of kindness, laughter, food, wine, and dancing, this entire evening was flawless from start to finish.

Who? : Valerie + Steven

What? : Preparations, wedding ceremony, and reception at a Philadelphia Center City hotel.  Portraits at Philly’s City Hall.

Where? The Loews Philadelphia

When? : August 2018

Valerie’s first email to me began with the sentence I really like what you do with light.  It seems only fitting then that hers and Steven’s day was full of gorgeous light.  From the beautiful rooms they got ready in at the Loews in Philly, to the pre-thunderstorm light filtering through the windows for their first look, to the delicate light under City Hall for their portraits, their day was simply full of light.  It’s also fitting, because Valerie and Steven themselves are light-filled, funny, bright, sweet, and endlessly joyous.  The sun held out for them all day, until giving them a glorious ceremony thunderstorm.  I’d spend a rainy afternoon with these two any day!

Summer Wedding at Riverside Farm

Where? Riverside Farm

When? : August 2018

Krissy and Eddie are a couple guided by their faith, their love for family, and their love for each other.  With the magnificent backdrop of one of my favorite venues of all time, Riverside Farm, they exchanged their vows under the wedding tree and partied the night away in the exquisite reception barn.  From Krissy praying with her family to Eddie tearing up when she came down the aisle, the love they have for each other and their faith truly lit up even the most overcast of summer days.  Krissy and Eddie, thank you for allowing me to document your day!

Wedding at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel

Wedding at the Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel

Who? : Kristen + Greg

What? : Preparations at home, church ceremony in Spring Lake, portraits by the lake and the beach, and a hotel ballroom reception

Where? The Berkeley Oceanfront Hotel

When? : August 2018

Being a film teacher and spending most of my time behind a camera, having a great photographer is monumentally important.

That is how the first email that I ever received from Kristen began, and I knew I loved her right from that second!  It was a huge joy and honor to have such a responsibility, but even more so to get to know this incredible couple and tell their story.  It would be hard to put my finger on my favorite part of the day – was it Kristen getting ready at her parents’ house?  The beautiful Spring Lake church they got married in?  The portraits by the lake, and at the beach across from their home?  I guess if I had to choose, it would be when their reception slideshow ended with the announcement of their new addition : Kristen and Greg will be parents before the new year, and they are going to be amazing.

Where?: Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers

When? : July 2018

What part of your wedding day was your favorite?  If I were this couple, I wouldn’t be able to choose! Was it their amazing rehearsal dinner at Distilled NY? Working with Nancy Harris Events? Getting ready at the The Maritime Hotel, complete with beds on the floor in front of the TV and a rooftop balcony? Taking pictures outside? Their ceremony at Pier Sixty, The Lighthouse & Current? The food from Abigail Kirsch Catering Relationships? The groom’s dad playing with the band?  EVERY part of this weekend was my favorite, and I am so honored that these two great families chose me to document their celebration.

What? : Outdoor summer wedding ceremony and indoor ballroom reception

Where?: Flowerfield Celebrations

When? : July 2018

This extraordinary couple showed up to their engagement session on a motorcycle, she in leather pants with a wicked smile and hilarious laugh.  I have been entranced by this couple since day one, since that session spent on a bike in DUMBO, all the way to their sunny waterside Hamptons bridal shower.  I knew their wedding day would be wild and wonderful, and I was absolutely right.  From the that’s what she said! jokes flying throughout the bridal suite to the long-into-the-night dance party that was their reception, this couple is joy, joy, joy from start to finish.

Wedding at the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club

Who? : Kristin + Patrick

What? : Preparations and portraits at a private home, ceremony at the Most Holy Trinity Church, and the reception at a beautiful beachside venue in Bridgehampton.

Where? : Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club

When? : June 2018

When the first email from a client includes the line “I’m literally obsessed with your work showcased on Instagram and would love to work with you!” … well, you know it’s going to be a good time!  I am so grateful to the team at the Bridgehampton Tennis and Surf Club for referring this amazing couple to me.  It was a great joy to spend the day with them, their gorgeous son, and incredible family and friends.  We started the day at their extraordinary rental home, moved to a charming Easthampton church for the ceremony, went back to the rental home (complete with horse barn!) for some portraits, and then headed to the beach for more portraits, a party, and an epic night.

Here are a few of my favorite images from the day:

Wedding at 26 Bridge in DUMBO

Wedding at 26 Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge Park

Who? : Flo + Chris

What? : Preparations at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, the ceremony at Brooklyn Bridge Park, portraits in DUMBO, and a reception in a renovated metal factory

Where? : 26 Bridge, Brooklyn, New York

When? : June 2018

When I showed up to Flo’s room at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge, I was met with a floor and beds strewn with flower debris.  “We’re making the bouquets…right now.  Corsages, too!” a bridesmaid told me, and it was love at first sight.  From the flower-field of destruction on their hotel room floor to Chris’s lip-lock with a piece of seaweed, the caress of a groomsman’s leg during door games to a ceremony overlooking the best view in all of Brooklyn, Flo and Chris planned a day filled with love, laughter, and great senses of humor.  It was a huge joy to document this day for them,  and the trust that they placed in me was a huge honor.

Wedding at the Crystal Tea Room

Wedding at the Crystal Tea Room

Who? : Sara + Ben

What? : Preparations in a hotel, first look at Philadelphia’s City Hall, portraits around Philly, ceremony and reception in a historic ballroom.

Where? :  The Crystal Tea Room, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

When? : June 2018

Ben and Sara, along with their fantastic coordinator Jennifer Supper of Kaleidoscope Weddings, planned for their wedding day to be a total rainstorm from start to finish.  Instead of the deluge that we were so worried about, we were treated to a pleasantly cool, dreamy Philly day.  “If only we had a LITTLE crazy rain for just ONE dramatic shot” we all said as we finished the portrait session…only to have a crazy torrential rain pour all over the end of the reception for one final shot.  Talk about perfect weather!  Much like the weather itself, Ben and Sara were cool, calm, and collected – and why wouldn’t they have been?  Their day was seamless, from start to finish!
