Alison and Nick wanted a day just for the two of them. They came in from Long Island for their wedding day in the city and started things off with a morning elopement ceremony today at City Hall. I met up with them at the clerk’s office to take a few portraits and be the witness for their wedding. Afterwards we went out to the Brooklyn Bridge for some photos and then they headed out for breakfast at Clinton Street Baking Company, rumored to be some of the best pancakes around!
It’s been a couple years since I’ve gotten to shoot an Valentine’s Day Elopement in NYC so I was thrilled to document Amy and Quaite’s elopement this morning. They were married at pebble beach in Brooklyn Bridge Park in a tiny ceremony performed by Sacha Jones. After they made things official we strolled through the park and the colorful streets of Dumbo for some fun post wedding portraits.
More photos to come! Congratulations Amy and Quaite! Happy Valentines Day to you both!
My first big wedding of the year was such a fun one! Sarah and Noa were originally supposed to be married this summer, but due to a venue closing, they decided to move up their plans by several months. Everything worked out and they got a great winter day complete with a fresh coat of snow! We got to take portraits around Park Slope, Brooklyn and Prospect Park before heading to their restaurant wedding at Scottadito Osteria Toscana.
Lots more photos on the way. Congratulations and best wishes to the happy couple!

I love when clients are willing to go off the beaten path a bit for photos. I have a running list of some of my favorite neighborhoods for wedding photos in NYC and I’ve been dying to do more shoots in Red Hook, Brooklyn. So when Sarah and Noa agreed to make the trek out this Brooklyn neighborhood for their engagement photos, I was psyched.
I love just strolling neighborhood blocks with couples, and Red Hook has so much character it’s a great backdrop for photos. There’s cobblestones, and colorful facades, a bit of brownstones, some great street art and even a waterfront that’s perfect for sunset. Sarah and Noa are also not afraid to be goofy and were up for all kinds of hijinks, making taking photos of them the best time and full of lots of laughs.
They are also getting married tomorrow! I’m super excited to document this awesome pair tie the knot! Congratulations to you both!
Throughout the year I always offer mini sessions in my local park. While Central Park is wonderful, Carl Schurz Park on the Upper East Side is one of my favorite hidden gems in the city. It’s compact enough to cover lots of ground in a short time and has lots of beautiful backdrops. Mini sessions are great for anyone who just would like a few quick portraits, and I photograph maternity photos in Carl Schurz Park all the time.
This session in late September was for Oindrila and her husband Vik before they had their first child. I adore shooting maternity photos for expecting couples, and I had a great time working these two. Congratulations to you both on your new little one!
