Emily and Matt came from the UK last year for their beautiful winter elopement in NYC. Emily’s dress was so gorgeous I’m still swooning over it. I met up with them at Central Park just after sunrise and we got a glimpse of sunshine and blue sky before it clouded over later in the day. I love shooting at sunrise, and this day was no exception. The light and having the park mostly to ourselves was lovely.

After a tour of Central Park, we hopped in a cab south to the City Clerk’s Office in lower Manhattan for their ceremony. It wasn’t too busy, so we still had time for a final round of photos in Brooklyn Bridge Park after they said their I do’s. Emily and Matt were so easy going and full of smiles they made my job a breeze. These two are clearly made for each other.

Congratulations and happy anniversary guys! Thank you so much for having me be a part of your day!

Happy Friday all! A quick sneak peek from this morning’s City Hall elopement to send you into the weekend.  Kendra and Mickey came in from California to get hitched at the Clerk’s Office this morning and they were positively delightful. I had a great time with them both along with their family who came to cheer them on.

More photos on the way soon, congratulations Kendra and Mickey!

For a wine aficionado like me shooting a North Fork Wedding at a vineyard was a dream come true! Serena and Ritesh were married last summer at the gorgeous Bedell Cellars on the North Fork of Long Island. If you haven’t had a chance to visit Long Island wine country, I highly recommend it. And getting the chance to take photos in the vines? So much fun.

I first met up with Serena and Ritesh and their home in Brooklyn for their Prospect Heights engagement photos. They were awesome to photograph then, so I figured their wedding was going to be great as well. I was right! These guys are such a wonderful couple and they looked stunning on their wedding day. We started at a local barn for their first look and then headed to Bedell Cellars for their portraits. Serena and Ritesh had an extra unique wedding as they actually had two ceremonies and an outfit change in between. First they had a Hindu ceremony and then changed for a Christian ceremony as well to reflect both their faiths. Both ceremonies took place on the lawn at the vineyard under the most beautiful gigantic oak tree.

After tying the knot, everyone gathered for lawn games and of course lots of excellent wine. Just before their first dance, the sky started turning colors so my second shooter and I grabbed Serena and Ritesh and made a beeline for the vineyards to get some of that spectacular sunset light. It was golden light perfection! I always recommend sunset portraits if your timeline allows it, and I’m so glad they were up for it.

Congratulations Serena and Ritesh! Thanks so much for having me!

This was one of my favorite sessions from last year. Sarah originally emailed me with her and Ben’s story as “Two composers, one cat, and four pianos.” The two music lovers live in an adorable little house in Queens and when it came time to exchange vows, they knew they would be getting married at home. (In fact, they were featured in a recent article in the NY Times about how much they love their space.) They knew it was just going to be an intimate elopement with them, an officiant and one other friend in their living room. Before the ceremony they wanted to take photos to commemorate the day. We hung out at their house, snuggled with their adorable fluffy white cat, and of course I had them play some of their favorite duets. Sarah and Ben make an amazing couple, their shared love of music clearly brings them so much joy and it was a pleasure to photograph them!

Congratulations and happy anniversary Sarah and Ben! Thank you so much for inviting me into your home!

A sneak peek at this morning’s lovely elopement at Brooklyn Bridge Park! Sebastian and Mark came all the way from Australia to get hitched this morning by Beth Lamont overlooking the Manhattan skyline in Brooklyn Bridge Park. They’ve been together for over ten years, but decided to elope when gay marriage passed in Australia late last year on Mark’s birthday. It worked out perfectly as the law passed on Mark’s birthday and they were married on Sebastian’s! The happiest birthday’s all around!

Huge congratulations to these two handsome grooms! More photos on the way soon!
