Sam & CeCe | NYC Elopement Photographer | Tribeca

Sam and CeCe are my first couple to come all the way from Alaska to elope in NYC! They opted to get married at City Hall and then meet up with me afterwards for a few photos around lower Manhattan. We strolled through Tribeca and then finished up with a few photos on the Highline.

Congratulations to you both!

Travel Tuesday: Sintra, Portugal | Travel Photographer

Travel Tuesday for 8.19.14: Sintra, Portugal

Traveled: March 2014, Solo

I saw that Sintra showed up in the NY Times this week as a travel feature and remembered that I haven’t yet shared any photos from my trip this past spring. It’s been a crazy wedding you season you guys! Anyhow, I read about Sintra in my guidebook when I was running a half marathon in Lisbon back in March. Rainbow colored castles? Moorish castles weaving through the mountains? Stunning vistas? Count me in.

This was a super easy day trip from Lisbon, perhaps a 40 minute train ride right into the city center. You can take a tourist bus up into the hills from town which I’d recommend, it’s quite a hike. From there you can easily wander from site to site, and even hike further up into the mountains to a cross way up on the mountain, which is amazing for views of the entire valley and the castles below. I bought tickets to just the Moorish walls and the Palacio de Pena, both were awesome and full of photo opportunities. If you’ve been on the search for a fairytale, this is it.

Nina & Jay | New Jersey Engagement Session | In the Woods

As this post goes live I will be headed out the door to head up to Vermont to shoot Nina and Jay’s wedding, so I figured I should get their engagement session up soon!

Nina and Jay are an awesome, adventurous couple who invited me out to their home in New Jersey for a lovely summer session. They have an incredible property that leads into acres of woods. When I asked what they liked to do, they said go for walks outside, so that’s exactly what we did. The light was lovely, these two were super fun and up for all sorts of crazy antics, and we made gorgeous photos. Magic. Stay tuned for wedding photos this weekend!

Liz & Lucy | Elope in Central Park | Dene Shelter Wedding

My couples are the best. Liz and Lucy were no exception. I had the most wonderful afternoon with these two girls. They are another one of my couples from Texas, and sported the cowboy boots to prove it! :-)

Liz and Lucy were married by the lovely Reverend Samora in the Dene Shelter, a place I’d never shot a ceremony before, but was completely perfect. (If you’re looking for a quiet, smallish shelter in the park to take the place of Wagner’s Cove, this might be a good choice!) After the ceremony, we wandered through the park and then they even let me convince them to take a ride on the Roosevelt Island tram, one of my favorite trips within the city!

Liz and Lucy, I can’t thank you enough for having me. I wish you both many years of full happiness and adventures!

Shanan & Ben | New York Elopement Photographer | Central Park Wedding

I had a great evening with Shanan and Ben for their elopement in Central Park! These two came up from Australia to tie the knot in NYC. For their ceremony, officiated by Judie Guild, they chose a lovely spot by Turtle Pond overlooking Belvedere’s Castle. After exchanging vows (and a super cool Batman ring!) we wandered for a grand photo tour all through Central Park, including some rather feisty turtles over by the Ladies Pavilion!

Shanan and Ben, thanks so much to you both for being awesome, I had a great time at your wedding! Best wishes and many congratulations!
