Yale Club Wedding

Yale Club Wedding

Who? : Phoebe + Steven

What? : Preparations, ceremony, and reception at the Yale Club in New York.  Portraits in Central Park by Gapstow Bridge.

Where?  The Yale Club

When? : October 2019

Phoebe.  And.  Steven.  They described their wishes for their day to be “classic New York, elegant, warm, sophisticated, intimate.”  Surrounded by candlelight at the iconic Yale Club, they got all of that and more : portraits in Central Park with the fall foliage, a sweetly peaceful getting-ready atmosphere,  time alone for portraits at night on the Yale Club terrace, and a fantastic day helmed by a terrific team of vendors.  I’d photograph this day for these two (and their remarkable families) every single day : want to do it again, y’all?

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

St. Regis Wedding

St. Regis Wedding

Who? : Victoria + Peter

What? : Preparations and ceremony in Rumson, New Jersey.  Portraits in Central Park.  Reception at the St. Regis

Where?  The St. Regis NYC

When? : June 2019

8:30am photography start.  10:30 photography end time.  From the sweetest shore town to the center of Manhattan, this day was a ride from start to finish.  At the center of it were Victoria and Peter, a couple so dynamic and charming that it almost defies description.  From Victoria’s distinctive laugh (that never failed to make me laugh) to Peter’s charm, their incomprehensibly kind and fantastic wedding party to their warm, welcoming families – well, this was simply a great, great day.

I’m often asked what it takes to get great wedding photography.  Is it how you pose?  Should you wear a particular dress style, color, pocket square?  What if you won’t know what to do with your hands?  Should you look at me?  Should you learn to ignore me?  What I say in response is no, no, none of that matters.  What matters is that you’re happy.  That the person you’re marrying fills you with a heart-bursting joy.  That you’re willing to let that joy explode out of your face.  Just be happy.  Be happy, and your pictures will be perfect.

Victoria and Peter, heres to your inspiring happiness.  May it light your way always.  Thank you for everything.

Wedding at the Loews Hotel Philly

Wedding at the Loews Hotel Philly

Who? : Alexa + Ryan

What? : Preparations in a hotel and an AirBnB in Philadelphia, ceremony at a church, portraits in the park, and a reception in the Loews Hotel Ballroom

Where?   The Loews Hotel Philadelphia

When? : April 2019

The bold documentary style has drawn us both in. We like the creative and artful touches (fades, bokeh in lighting, mirroring and strong angles are very nice). We are both drawn to the colorful/psychedelic styles and would love to capture this if possible.

Bold documentary style?  Creative touches?  Mirroring?  Strong angles?   Colorful style?  When I read this note from Alexa and Ryan in regards to their wedding photography I knew I was all in – as if I wasn’t already.  Alexa and Ryan are the sort of people that bring the sun with them wherever they go, from the incredibly sweet way they are with each other to the way they laugh and forge bravely into some of the craziest Philadelphia wind I’ve ever experienced.

From the wind sweeping them through a shower of rose petals down the steps of their church to crawling under scaffolding in the pitch dark for a breathtaking rooftop view of the city, Alexa and Ryan are the kind of clients that wedding photographers dream about : bold, creative, artful, and strong.  They themselves are colorful and extraordinary, so it’s no surprise that they wanted that reflected in their wedding images.

What a dream, what a windy dreamy dream their day was.

Nassau Inn Wedding

Nassau Inn Wedding

Who? : Freda + Da

What? : Preparations and tea ceremony at a Princeton hotel, ceremony at the University chapel, portraits on the college campus, and a sweet, small reception inside an inn.

Where?  The Nassau Inn, Princeton University

When? : March 2019

“Tingting and Andy are friends of mine and they spoke highly of you and your service. We would love to have you as our photographer for our wedding.”

On the contact form of my website there is a section to tell me who referred you to my business.  Da wrote the above, and it just goes to show that the best marketing is happy clients.  I’ve said that for years, I say that when teaching other wedding photographers, and it’s been a constant throughout the nearly two decades that I’ve been a wedding photographer.  Make your clients happy, and they’ll tell their friends.  It’s really that easy.  Tingting and Andy had an AMAZING wedding several years prior, and it is so heartwarming to know that they still remembered me, and that they’re still telling their friends about me!

Da and Freda were married on the kind of late-winter/early-spring day that makes you love this time of year.  It was cold, yes, but the light was brilliant and bright.  The Princeton campus was quiet, and we had the kind of timeline that wedding photographers dream about : ample time to create portraits, no rushing, an easy experience for the couple and their families, and space to breathe and enjoy the day.

From getting ready at the Nassau Inn to long walks across the college campus, everything unspooled and unfolded like a dream.  There was gorgeous light, a wonderful collaborative team, and a reception that ended with a shower of sparklers and a sweet kiss at the bottom of the steps.

“Simple.  Quiet.  Classic.”

When asked how they envisioned their wedding day, Da and Freda told me those three words.  And their day was just that : simple, quiet, and classic.  Full of love and sweetness, calm comfort and beauty.  It was an honor to document the day for them.

Ocean Club Bahamas Wedding

Ocean Club Bahamas Wedding

Who? : Jenny + James

What? : Rehearsal dinner, wedding, and reception at the Four Seasons resort on Paradise Island in the Bahamas

Where?  The Ocean Club

When? : January 2019

I first met Jenny and James at Jenny’s sister’s Philadelphia wedding.  I was immediately besotted with Jenny, Meredith, their brother, their parents, and their entire family.  At once loving, tight-knit, warm and welcoming, they’re also funny, sweet, and know how to throw a spectacular party.  When Jenny’s amazing event planner Tracie Domino called me about Jenny’s destination wedding, I practically tripped over myself with my excitement to work with this amazing family again.

From the rehearsal dinner by the beach to dinner and dancing under a tent covered in fairy lights, the entire weekend was perfect.  I know that words on wedding photography blogs start to sound the same after awhile – everyone has amazing clients, everyone has amazing weekends, every venue is amazing.  But these people?  This weekend?  These families?  Amazing is the only word for it.  I can’t wait for the next wedding, the next party, and the next time I get to work with these spectacular human beings.  Jenny, James, Meredith, Meredith’s James, Andrew, Carol, Bob – you’re the best.  Always and forever.

Alfond Inn Wedding

Alfond Inn Wedding

Who? : Amanda + Ben

What? : Destination wedding in Winter Park, Florida

Where?  The Alfond Inn

When? : December 2018

I don’t even know where to start with this wedding, so I’ll start back in 2007.  I was living in Tallahassee, Florida, and photographed the headshots for a bunch of juniors and senior theatre majors at FSU.  Years after that, I’m living in New York, and so are many of my past clients.  Those clients led me to Amanda, a FSU alumni herself.  I first encountered Amanda in Hello Dolly on Broadway, where she went on for a role she understudied (and she was amazing).  I first encountered Ben without realizing it, seeing him in Book of Mormon before I knew he was Amanda’s Ben.

Being hired to photograph this wedding was an actual dream come true. Everything about Amanda and Ben is just…yeah, it’s all excellent.  They’re crazily, insanely talented individuals.  They’re hard workers, passionate about their dreams and their craft, and true triple threats.  They’re adorably wonderfully gorgeous, just beautiful human beings inside and out.  They’re funny, ferociously love their family and friends, and love each other with a truth and depth that is just really, really freaking gorgeous to see.

And their wedding?  THEIR WEDDING.  We started the day at the Alfond Inn, with Amanda in her suite.  The rain was pouring down, streaking the windows and pattering on the pool outside.  Amanda got ready, Ben got ready.  They exchanged letters they had written each other.  (We all cried).  They prepared to see each other for the first time on a covered patio outside the Alfond – and the sun came out.  The rain stopped, the clouds parted, they saw each other (we all cried), and we took pictures outside.   The second we went back in, the clouds covered up and the rest of the day was moody and dreamy outside.

From their prep time at the Alfond before the ceremony, their sweet first look, the charm of their wedding vows, through to the gorgeous reception, the whole day was everything.  Choosing a favorite part is nearly impossible.  Was it Amanda and her childhood best friend tearing up when she put her mother’s necklace on as a bracelet?  Was it Ben, struggling to keep a straight face when reading Amanda’s letter to him, or the way his eyes actually lit up when he saw her come down the aisle?  Perhaps it was Amanda’s dad, who found a lost recording of Amanda’s late mother singing Wind Beneath My Wings (note : Amanda was in Hello Dolly with, yes, Bette Midler) and played it for the father/daughter dance?

Side note : I’ve never had to go to the bathroom and wash my face after a father/daughter dance before.  WE.  ALL.  CRIED.

Amanda and Ben, thank you.  Thank you, thank you, thank you.  Thank you for being so kind and open in front of my lens.  Thank you for treating me and my team like family.  Thank you for sharing your day, your love, and your hearts with me.  I am eternally grateful.  Now go lay on a beach – you deserve it!

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!

Wedding at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

Wedding at 1 Hotel Brooklyn Bridge

Who? : Lindsay + Craig

What? : Preparations, ceremony, and reception in a hotel overlooking the Manhattan skyline.  Portraits around DUMBO, Brooklyn, as well as Brooklyn Bridge Park.

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.

Wedding at the Westin in Philadelphia

Wedding at the Westin in Philadelphia

Who? : Rachel + Brandon

What? : Preparations, ketubah signing, tish, bedeken, ceremony, and reception in a Center City Philadelphia hotel and ballroom.  Portraits of the couple, family, and wedding party around Philly : most notably, at City Hall, Broad Street, and Rittenhouse Square.

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.

Ocean Place Resort and Spa Wedding

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!

Summer Wedding at the Gramercy Park Hotel

Summer Wedding at the Gramercy Park Hotel

Who? : Cristina + Daniel

What? : Preparations, wedding ceremony, and reception at an iconic NYC hotel.  Portraits outside of the hotel with a vintage cab.

Where?  The Gramercy Park Hotel, Manhattan

When? : August 2018

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.

Wedding at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia

Wedding at the Loews Hotel in Philadelphia

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!

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.

Wedding at the Gramercy Park Hotel

Who? : Private couple, private wedding at the Gramercy Park Hotel

What? : Rooftop wedding and candlelit rooftop reception

Where? : Gramercy Park Hotel in Manhattan, New York

When? : August 2017

Every once in awhile a completely private wedding comes along.  For whatever reason, be it political or personal, the couple does not want their names or faces on the internet.  I can understand and respect that!  This sweetly private couple had great reasons for wanting their images offline, and agreed to allow me to share images where their names and faces weren’t immediately identifiable.  I am so glad they allowed me to share these images from their day, as the Gramercy Park Hotel has never looked lovelier!

The Gramercy Park Hotel has long been a favorite wedding venue of mine.  I love the deep jewel tones of the hotel rooms, and the deliciously understated elegance of the decor.  I love the proximity to the privacy of Gramercy Park (but don’t get excited, you’re not allowed to take wedding day pictures in Gramercy Park** – that’s a NYC rule, not a hotel rule!), and how close the venue is to other picturesque locations for wedding day portraits.

I wish I could publicly thank the amazing clients that I worked with on this wedding at the Gramercy Park Hotel but….privacy.  You two, if you’re reading this, know that documenting your day was a tremendous honor.  I am overjoyed that you’re so thrilled with the images, and I look forward to creating your album soon!

Here are a few detail images from the day:

**About the park permit…no, you cannot shoot wedding day pictures in Gramercy Park.  Lest you think you can just “wing it”, you’ll get thrown out, and I’ll get banned.  I love my clients, but I’m not getting banned from anywhere!  If you think “I can convince them!” just know that they’ve turned down Woody Allen, Robert DeNiro, and Google!

Wedding at Philadelphia’s Logan Hotel

Who? : Alison + Jeremy

What? : Wedding in a historic basilica, portraits at the Rodan Museum, and reception in a modern hotel ballroom.

Where? : Wedding at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul and reception at The Logan

When? : June 2017

Alison and Jeremy have been a delight to work with from the very start.  From our first in-person meeting to their glorious sunset engagement session, it’s been a joy working with these two and their incredible families.  I have loved The Logan in Philadelphia for years, having gotten ready there for my own wedding back when it was the Four Seasons.  I also well remember the first wedding I ever shot at the Cathedral Basilica of Saints Peter and Paul.  The combination of those two spectacular venues makes for a very iconic Philly wedding, and the addition of a quick stop at the Rodin Museum for portraits made this day nothing short of perfect.  The pouring rain  that had threatened all day stopped the second the ceremony was over, and the skies opened up for some gorgeous light during their portraits together, which was truly a sight to see.

Alison and Jeremy, thank you so much for having us be a part of your day.  You truly had a dream team of collaborators working on your wedding, from Evantine to Eric at the Logan, and it’s always wonderful to work with such amazing artists!

When you’re worried about heat on your wedding day and wake up to the perfect cool spring day in NYC, what can go wrong?  Not a single thing went wrong at Monica and James’ Ritz Carlton Battery Park wedding.  From the promptness of hair and makeup to the brilliant light for the first look, the unexpected quiet privacy of the portrait location to the utter sweetness of the ceremony, this day was warmth and light from the first moment I walked into Monica’s hotel room.  It was a great honor to spend the day with this remarkable couple, their phenomenal families, and their incredibly sweet friends.
