What a wonderful summer wedding! Nicole and Mike are two of the sweetest most laid back people you could meet and I had a great time working with them. These two met in Dental School and have the gorgeous smiles to prove it, they made my job easy.

They were married on a beautiful blue sky summer day on Long Island at the Wind Watch Golf & Country Club. I started off the morning while Nicole was getting ready. Seriously, could this girl be any more gorgeous? From there they had a fun first look and then we wandered the grounds for portraits.

Their ceremony was filled with family, friends and lots of laughter. Also, side note: that Ketubah? Nicole drew and painted it herself! So impressive! After breaking the glass, it was on to an awesome hora and loads of fun dancing.

Nicole and Mike, thank you so much for having me! It was a blast hanging out with you both! Congratulations and best wishes to you. I hope you had an amazing honeymoon in Italy!!

Such a fun little easy going wedding in the park! I met up with Julian and Olga by Bethesda Terrace on a beautiful summer morning. We snapped a photos as we made our way through the park and over to the Ladies Pavilion for their ceremony. They were wed in a heartfelt ceremony by the Wedding Minister of Brooklyn surrounded by their families. Afterwards, I wished them congratulations and they were off to a celebratory lunch.

Best wishes to you both!

Travel Tuesday for 8.25.15: New Hampshire and Portland, Maine

Traveled: August 2015, with Alex

Today’s Travel Tuesday is a bit more domestic. This past weekend Alex and I took a little long weekend getaway up to New Hampshire with an afternoon excursion into Maine. It was getting close to the end of summer and I was dead set on us taking a little trip before Alex started his fall semester. I had it in my head that I wanted a cabin on a lake. Somewhere quiet and peaceful where we could enjoy the view and perhaps get it in a swim and be unplugged for a bit. We had been looking for spots all over New England but everything was super expensive… until we stumbled upon this little place on AirBnB in the middle of New Hampshire. Neither Alex nor I had ever been to the state before, but decided this cottage on Duncan Lake sounded beautiful, so off we went!

While the weekend ended up being a tad rainy, particularly on Sunday, we still made the best of it and had a wonderful time. Relaxing, beautiful scenery, and I even got to take a stab at astrophotography, something I’ve never really played with before. Funny story… while we were out on the dock at night and I was taking these starry photos, it was completely quiet. Until we heard very loud noises from what sounded like a huge mammal in the woods next to the dock. We THINK it was a moose, but needless to say were freaked out and pretty much ran back in the house. (Yes, we are city kids and were not expecting THAT close of an encounter with nature. 😉 )

After a couple nights at the lake, we drove to Portland, Maine to spend the afternoon before heading back. It was my first time in Maine as well and all I can say is I will most definitely be back!

Enjoy the photos!

Jenny and Claudia were married the day after the Supreme Court passed marriage equality nation wide. What a fantastic weekend to celebrate, and these girls had an fantastic party. Science nerdery plus zoo animals plus two amazing ladies? Sold. I started the day with them at their hotel getting ready and then we headed out for their first look at the zoo. We got to wander through some of the exhibits for photos, it’s not often I get to coordinate photos with a grizzly bear and a zoologist bride! So awesome. We had a great time with the animals and then they were off to exchange vows with their closest family and friends as witnesses.

After the ceremony, their reception was also held at the zoo and I loved the science theme! I started off as a pre-med in undergrad, and I never thought I’d see chemistry books again as a wedding photographer. This wedding proved me wrong and it was perfect. Periodic table of guests and test tubes filled with rainbow nerd candy for the win!:-)

Congratulations Jenny and Claudia! Wishing you both so many years of happiness! Thanks a million for having me!
