New York Botanical Gardens Wedding

New York Botanical Gardens Wedding

Who? : Leslie + Justin

Where?  Stone Mill at the NYBG

When? : June 2019

What can I say about a couple so wonderful?  And how can I describe our weird, long road that led to Leslie and Justin’s day?  I met Leslie back in 2007-ish when she was a student at FSU and I was in my first new studio in Tallahassee, Florida.  We were both young, and early in careers that would eventually lead us both to New York and back to each other.  I photographed Leslie here in New York onstage, worked with her and Justin at Fort Tryon Park for their engagement images, and have now photographed their wedding.

It’s crazy how the world works.  I had no idea that these sweet, tiny babies (okay, mature teenagers) from FSU would still be a presence in my life over a decade later.  Shayla and I work often together at weddings, on events for The Wedding School, and she’s evolved into a brilliant production manager, filmmaker, entrepreneur, and Jedi minister destined to be besties with Lance Bass (it’s a long story).  Justin Bowen has worked on Broadway and is now exploring his almost hilariously enormous talent as a true artist in the field of hair design (there is no other word for it, he’s an artist).  Nick has emerged as one of the top rising makeup artists in the NYC area, another genius artist destined for stardom.  Leslie has been in almost too many Broadway shows to count, and her presence onstage is as dazzling as her ferociously beautiful voice and gorgeous, gorgeous dance talent.  Michael, Hardy, and so many more – you light up the world, and my life is better with you all in it.

Leslie and Justin had the kind of day you can only dream of.  Brilliant sunlight, the best of friends who have become your family, family that warms the heart, a stunning outdoor venue, and so much tears and laughter.  My love for these two has grown my heart a couple of sizes, and I hope the sweetness that they have together shines through in the photography of their day.

Stonover Farm Wedding

Stonover Farm Wedding

Who? : Suzanna + Pat

Where?  Stonover Farm, Lenox, Massachusetts

When? : June 2019

As wedding photographers, we write a lot.  We write instagram captions, we write blogs, we write information for our websites.  We work hard to put words to paper (or screen) to describe the incredible humans that come in and out of our lives.  We look for new words to describe how people look at each other – how do you do that when every wedding is different, and every couple truly is special?  How do you describe the perfect tapestry that is the way two unique individuals love each other?  We write and rewrite, we use our images to illustrate, and we can only hope that the love that we feel for our clients can be received and understood.

Suz and Pat, though?  These two have broken me.   I like to think I’m a good writer, I like to think I can describe with words what I feel and see.  But…I got nothing today, y’all.  All I have is eyes that keep filling up with tears when I think of their ceremony, ears still ringing from the sounds of Pat’s family’s voices, and a huge heart that can’t contain all of the crazy feelings from their day.  For once, I have NO WORDS.  Just pictures.  And a lot of love for two incredible people who are really, honestly, that much better together.

Wedding at Whitby Castle

Wedding at Whitby Castle

Who? : Melissa + Matt

Where?  Whitby Castle, Rye, New York

When? : June 2019

When asked how they wanted their wedding to feel, Melissa and Matt told me “whimsical, romantic, meaningful.”  And their day was just that.  After a winter of cold, rainy, dark days it was a gorgeous, unusually cool summer day the day they got married.  Under the brightest of blue skies, Melissa and Matt said their vows surrounded by family, friends, and the sweet memories of those who were no longer with them.

It’s really impossible to convey the magic of Melissa and Matt without sounding like I’m exaggerating.  They’re kind.  They’re wildly funny.  They are exquisitely gentle with each other and honestly delight in simply being together.  They’re warm.  They’re witty.  They’re gorgeous inside and out.  To be a part of their day is to be one step closer to the sun : wrapped up in all that makes them the wonderful, true people that they are.  It was an honor to document their day, and an honor to know them both.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Who? : Casey + David

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

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!

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

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!

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!

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.

The food from Abigail Kirsch Catering Relationships?

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.

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.

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.

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!

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