If you’ve been following along here since I got started, you know that giving back has always been a strong focus of my business and what I strive for in life in general. Thus, when I found out about the work of One Month to Give, I was thrilled to be asked to be included in their photographer line-up. This is a small organization based in my home state of Minnesota that is harnessing the powers of group of photographers to make the world a better a place; something I can most certainly get behind.
During the month of October, all photographers involved will be donating sessions across the US with 100% of the proceeds being offered to charity. I will be donating one session in Minneapolis and one here in New York City, October 4th and 15th respectively. These sessions can be for family, couples, or even a mini elopement!
So if you’ve been thinking about getting photos for holiday cards, or just for fun, now is the time! Check out the One Month To Give site and get all the details on booking a session.
I hope to see you in front of my camera in October! Cheers to using creative powers for some extra good this holiday season!

Yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous September day. I got to spend my evening with Manny and Esther Maria in Central Park, who were married at the Ladies Pavilion at sunset. The light was divine, these two radiated joy, and it was pretty much perfection.
Congratulations to you both! Lots more to come!

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks as you may have guessed, but right before I left for my trip to Iceland, I had the chance to shoot a very special proposal. Amber is one of my photo friends, and one of the coolest ladies I know. So when Marley contacted me about catching the moment he popped the question, I couldn’t have been more excited!
Marley arranged not only for photos, but for a piano player in Washington Square Park, one of Amber’s favorite spots, before a romantic dinner date. I hid behind the trees and just as the sun set, they wandered by the piano, a favorite melody was played, and these two kids got engaged! And, in an only in New York moment, after we strolled around the park for a few more photos, who would be the first to congratulate the happy couple? None other then Alec Baldwin, of course. How awesome is that?! (PS… I didn’t even realize it, but Amber just pointed out that he’s actually in the background of the fourth photo!)
Congratulations Amber and Marley, best wishes to you both!! I couldn’t be happier for you guys!
Travel Tuesday for 9.2.14: Off to Explore…. ICELAND!
That’s right, I’m off again! As this post goes live, I’ll be jumping on a flight to Reykjavik to head on a road trip-trekking adventure of the land of fire and ice with some awesome ladies. I’ll be out of the office until September 15th. As a head’s up, I’ll be checking email when I can, but as a good part of this trip involves backcountry hiking, trekking and camping, I’m doubtful I’ll have good wi-fi. All emails will be returned promptly when I return. Until then, feel free to follow along on instagram!
Lots of photos to come! Happy travels to all, onwards!
I had a great time with Diana and Shalev today! They were married at a summer camp up in the Hudson Valley, and the weather just held out long enough to finish the ceremony, it was timing perfection! Lots more to come from these two.
