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. :-)

Fine Art Wedding Albums | New York City Wedding Photographer

I recently got a few shipments of gorgeous wedding albums in and I thought I’d share a few photos. One thing I always try to impress on clients is to please, please print your photos! However you do it, beautiful photos are not meant to sit on a disc in a drawer or languish on a hard drive only to be outdated some day. Hang them on your walls, put them in a frame, photographs should be printed! Your grandkids will want to hold those photos in their hands and hear the stories of your day thirty years down the road.

First up, are Maddy and Yossi’s Fine Art Flush Mount Albums. These albums are heirloom quality, made from the finest Japanese silks, natural linens, and Italian leathers. I first blogged about these albums last year, click here for that post with a fabric version. Fine art albums are made with  genuine photographs are printed on Fuji Crystal Archival Paper mounted on hard substrate, then bound by hand to lay flat for a seamless presentation. Maddy and Yossi got their album embossed with names and date, and ordered mini albums for their parents. A great option for all fine art albums!

Aren’t they beautiful?

Next up, new Photobook Wedding Albums! I’m so excited to offer these wonderful books as they can make great parent gifts or if you’re on a budget, these could be the albums for you. They are still genuine photographs on Fuji Archival paper, but are a bit lighter weight than their fine art cousins seen above, with no hard substrate mounting. Photobook album covers come in all sorts of awesome colors, textures, and fabrics; everything animal friendly. Check them out!

Travel Tuesday: Takayama, Japan| Travel Photographer

Travel Tuesday 3.24.14: Takayama, Japan

Traveled: September 2013, With Alex

Alex and I spent a few days in this lovely little town back on our September trip to Japan. It’s a gorgeous train ride through the alps to get there, and we stayed at a ryokan, a traditional Japanese inn that not only had hot springs, but served us mountains of amazing food. We spent our time wandering through the antique lanes full of old sake houses, doing a bit of hiking, and even visited a historic village up in the hills.

If you have the chance, to get out of the big cities in Japan, I highly recommend it!

Travel Tuesday: Lisbon, Portugal | A Preview

Travel Tuesday for 3.17.14: Lisbon, Portugal

Traveled: Fall of 2002 with Angela a study abroad friend; and Currently, solo

That’s right, I’m on the road again! This week’s post comes to you live from Europe! I’ll be galavanting around Lisbon until later this week and then will be home again for a couple weeks or so. I first headed to Lisbon on a weekend trip while studying in Spain and loved it immediately. Coming back now, I agree with my past self. Portugal is something special.

I came this time to run a half marathon of all things, and I figured if I was here, I might as well hang out and see the sights a bit. Here is a quick preview with plenty more to come!
