NYC Elopement Photographer » New York City Elopement and Wedding Photographer


This idea has been pinging around in my head for a couple years now. As most of you know, giving back has always been a core tenant of how I run things around here. While I contribute profits each year to social justice causes, I’ve been trying to figure out how to make an even bigger impact.

Though I’m not sure I have that all figured out just yet, I figured if I keep sitting on ideas, then nothing will happen and that’s not good for anyone. So, without further ado, I’m launching a special holiday version of what I’m calling Elope For Good. My hope is that this project will have many different iterations, but for now it’s simple. If you book me as your photographer for an NYC Elopement between now and December 27th, 10% of the fee will be donated to the International Rescue Committee.

I worked and volunteered for many years with local refugee and immigrant populations both in New York and Minnesota as an English language teacher, volunteer manager, and working in public health. I personally volunteered with the IRC as a home English tutor for refugee families and have seen first hand the good work they do. In the world today there are so many refugee populations desperately in need both here in the US and abroad. The IRC supports refugees around the world. Thus, I’m trying to do my small part to help.

So, if you’re looking to elope in NYC around the holidays, let’s do something good together! Contact me to get in touch and let’s make a difference.

As promised with yesterday’s St Thomas Engagement Photos, here is the Caribbean Elopement to go along with them! Michelle and Ricky  were originally planning to have a small wedding in NYC, however after giving it some thought they decided to scrap those plans and head south to the Caribbean and ended up in St Thomas.

When they asked me to tag along for some photo taking, I couldn’t have been more excited! As a self diagnosed travel addict, I love heading to new locales and am always up for an adventure. Getting to photograph a gorgeous couple in new amazing locations? Pretty much my dream come true! (Hint Hint. If you’re looking to head out on an destination elopement adventure, please let me know! )

We started the afternoon with them getting ready at their rented condo at Sapphire Beach. This was a great space and I loved the colorful walls as a backdrop! Sidenote: I have so few couples who get ready together, and I kind of love it when people do. I know first looks are great, but it can be fun to have your partner help you button up your dress or figure out how to tie a bow tie!

After they were all spiffed up, we hopped in the car to Limetree Beach. This worked out so well as we had the sunrise view on the east side of the island for their engagement photos and then a wonderful sunset for the ceremony on the west side at Limetree! We found a great spot down amongst the rocks and the surf for their vows thanks to their awesome St Thomas Wedding Officiant, Michael. After they tied the knot we had a few more minutes of light and strolled the beach for some closing photos. Oh! And a first dance! Because these guys were willing to show off their moves much better then I was able to sing for them. 😉

Michelle and Ricky you guys are seriously the best! I can’t thank you enough for the adventure and for being awesome. Congratulations and best wishes!

Sapphire Beach Engagement Photos at Sunrise

So I know it’s Travel Tuesday, and if you follow me on instagram you know I’ve just gotten back from a trip to Australia and those photos are on the way soon. However, I figured this week we’d do travel photos with my most recent Caribbean destination elopement in St Thomas in the US Virgin Islands!

When I first heard from Michelle and Ricky, it was about a small wedding in New York. A few weeks later I heard back that the plan had changed…. they were eloping to the Caribbean! How would I feel about tagging along for their wedding on the beach?? Are you kidding me? Of course!! And that’s how it was set for me to photograph the most amazing destination elopement in St Thomas.

I flew in a couple days before to be sure I could get a lay of the land and yes, it is as beautiful as you’ve heard. White sand beaches, turquoise waters, the whole Caribbean paradise postcard does indeed exist. My normal Caribbean destination elopement package involves 4 hours of coverage, but Michelle and Ricky opted to split things up and we did an engagement shoot at sunrise on the first day followed by their actual elopement at sunset the next evening. This was perfect as we got to shoot at two different locations. I met up with them for their engagement shoot at sunrise at Sapphire Beach where we were both staying. We started at Prettyklip Point, a beautiful rock point jutting out into the sea. From there we wandered in the sand a bit, took a stroll through the marina, and then headed out to Lindquist Beach to finish up enjoying the incredible scenery the whole way through.

Stay tuned for their wedding photos tomorrow!
