New Packaging! | New York City Wedding Photographer

I’m so excited to announce that I’ve finally gotten with the program and redone all my packaging for 2014. This was a long process, as I’m pretty picky when it comes to what I deliver to clients. It was important to me to support vendors who do high quality work and who are also environmentally friendly. Everything you see here is as sustainable, recycled, earth friendly product as I could find. Forest Stewardship Council certified drives, handmade 100% tree-free, chlorine free, banana paper boxes, the whole works. If I’m going to send you something, know that I will take care that it’s going to take as little toll on the environment as possible. :-)

Without further ado… please welcome my new fancy flash drives, no more DVD’s! Hurray! These will be available for all 2014 wedding clients. (If any previous clients would like to order one, just let me know.) Aren’t they lovely?

 In addition to the new flash drives, I’ve also updated my online galleries. The new presentation is nothing short of awesome. Huge images, beautiful cover photos, easy sharing to social media if you so chose, downloading, and ordering from my fantastic local pro lab. Wins all around.

Michael & Andrew | Elope in NYC | City Hall Wedding Photographer

I had SUCH a good time with Michael and Andrew! They came up from Florida along with their closest friends to get married in NYC and I’m so glad they found me. I met up with these two handsome grooms for their ceremony at City Hall and then we hopped in a limo for photos at Brooklyn Bridge Park. The morning could not have been better, these guys made my job easy, and I am in love with the photos we captured. We capped off with brunch and mimosas in midtown, making it an amazing day all around! :-)

Michael and Andrew, thank you both so very much for having me! It was such a pleasure. I wish you many years of love and happiness. Congratulations!

Travel Tuesday: Lake Como, Italy: A Preview | Destination Wedding Photographer

Travel Tuesday for 4.22.14: Lake Como Italy

Traveled: Once waaaay back in 2003 solo, and April 2014 with Alex

Sorry for missing a few weeks folks! If you follow me an instagram (which side note, are you on Instagram? If so, follow me and let’s be friends, it’s by far my favorite of the social media vices) you know I’ve been traveling quite a bit this spring, most recently Alex and I hopped over to Italy for just over a week.

We had an amazing time and have pledged to make this trip a regular thing, as we were both completely smitten. We divided our time between Lake Como and a little farmhouse in rural Tuscany. Mainly, we drank wine, ate pasta and gelato, and I had a field day with photo taking.

More photos to come, but here’s a quick preview of the lake portion of our adventure. Como is truly stunning. We stayed in a little B&B in the village of Laglio, which I can’t recommend enough, every single vista was breathtaking.

More to come!

Maddie Senior Photo Session: Sneak Peek! | NYC Senior Photographer | Central Park

I don’t often get requests for senior portraits in NYC, but back in the midwest, I know they’re a  huge thing. I’ve always thought they were so much fun, so when Maddie’s mom contacted me a few months ago asking if I’d be up for doing some senior portraits of her daughter while they were on a family trip, I thought it sounded like a great idea! Maddie was amazing in front of the camera! :-)

Here’s a quick peek at our session from this morning, more to come soon! Enjoy your time in NYC guys!

Jessica & Adam | Grafton Inn | Vermont Wedding Photographer

I had such a wonderful weekend with Jessica and Adam up at the Grafton Inn. I had been missing Vermont, as I alluded to in my last post, and small town Grafton was the perfect remedy!

This was such a wonderful little Vermont winter wedding, with everything quaint New England from old white churches to beautiful red barns. Basically all my favorite photo backdrops. Jessica was SUCH a gorgeous bride and fun fact, that’s her grandmother’s wedding dress she’s wearing. The very same grandmother helping her get ready. I love everything about this. :-)

Jessica and Adam just wanted photos through the ceremony, and then I was invited to join their guests for a fantastic dinner. A wonderful time had by all! Thank you both SO much for having me. I wish you a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations!

Travel Tuesday: Grafton, VT | Destination Wedding Photographer

Travel Tuesday 4.1.14: Grafton, Vermont
Traveled: March 2014, Solo

While I love to head to exotic destinations around the globe, as I get older I’ve discovered I also really love exploring places close to home. After spending a year living in the beauty of Vermont, I’ve been itching to get back ever since we left for the city. Don’t get me wrong, I love NYC, but sometimes the quiet of Vermont is just what you need. So for this weeks trip, I thought I’d share a view images from this last venture to the green mountain state.

I was up in Grafton to shoot Jessica and Adam’s gorgeous wedding, and before the events got started, I made sure to wander around a bit just for myself and also made time to hit the slopes! It was a wonderful weekend and the perfect few days out in the countryside.

Jami, Nivada, Julie & Kimberly : Sneak Peek! |Brooklyn Elopement Photographer | Brooklyn Bridge Park

Yep, you read that right, FOUR brides! This was my first double wedding, and I had an absolute blast with these ladies this afternoon. I don’t think  I’ve ever laughed more during a two hour session. :-)

They decided to go for Brooklyn Bridge Park despite the weather, as Jami said it was “Brooklyn Bridge or Bust!” And the risk paid off, we got about two hours without rain and it was awesome. We got in some fun portraits, and then they each traded off witnessing for the others ceremonies, so great!

More to come from these four, thanks so much for having me girls! Congratulations!

Oh yeah, and I almost forgot to mention… That time there was a wedding at Brooklyn Bridge Park invaded by a group of cycling Dutchmen in American flag jumpsuits? Yep. That happened today. Pure amazingness. :-)
