I had a wonderful morning with Kyle and Agustina! We met early in the am at Brooklyn Bridge Park to take advantage of the gorgeous dawn light and it was well worth it! Loads of beautiful images on the way! Congratulations guys! Enjoy!
I had an absolute ball with Andre and Keri this afternoon! These guys could not have been happier and were so much fun to hang out with!
Many congrats to you both! More to come!
As most of you know, I’ve been based primarily in Vermont this past year as my husband completes his PhD. It’s been an adventure going back and forth between the mountains and the city, but I’m excited to announce this fall I’ll be back in Brooklyn full time!
As a bit of a preview to fall, I’ll be in New York the entire month of June to shoot (and attend! Yay!) loads of fun weddings. To celebrate, I’ll be offering special mini elopement packages just for the month of June 2013 for any couples who’d like to elope outside of city hall. These will run $500 and include an hour of coverage for your ceremony and a brief portrait session, as well as your images on a disc.
I’d love to shoot some awesome weddings in some fun summer locations around the city. Coney Island or Governors Island anyone?
So what are you waiting for? Let’s do this NYC!
While I was away this past April a pretty cool thing happened for this little business. A number of weddings and elopements I’ve shot got featured all around the web on a bunch of great sites! It’s an honor to be published and I’m super excited to be represented on these cool blogs!
A few more will be going up in May, so I’ll be sure to keep you posted, but for now, here’s where I’ve been the past few weeks!
Sara and Shannon’s City Hall elopement was up over on 4Realequalityweddings.
Erika and Haywards gorgeous multicultural Brooklyn wedding over on Poptastic Bride!
Amanda and Christina’s beautiful Central Park elopement over on Wedloft.
Jen and Jonathan hopped over from Ireland to get married in Brooklyn last week! This was such a great elopement, not only because Jen and Jonathan were awesome, but because I got to shoot in my old neighborhood of Cobble Hill and it was an absolutely gorgeous day!
I started off with them at their apartment while they got ready and then we wandered from there. Aren’t her flowers pretty? I love all the creative bouquets people have!
We were also joined by their little son Ollie! Isn’t he adorable?
You kids are so cute!
I have semi obsession with the old carriage house doors in Brooklyn.
From Cobble Hill, we wandered down the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and then down to Brooklyn Bridge Park for the wedding.
I loved this bike! And, just for the record, I didn’t ask for this hand placement. Though I couldn’t help but point it out.
The ceremony was right on the water, officiated by the always lovely Judie Guild.
Congrats guys! I wish you all the best!
I had a wonderful afternoon with Jen, Jonathan and their little son Ollie! We wandered through my old stomping grounds in Cobble Hill and then headed down to Brooklyn Bridge Park for their ceremony officiated by the fabulous Judie Guild.
Congratulations and a very Happy Birthday to Jen! More to come!
Emma and Steven hopped across the pond from the UK to get hitched at City Hall in Manhattan. These two were super laid back and we had a wonderful time snapping portraits around City Hall and then catching a ride up to the Highline to finish off the afternoon.
City Hall was crazy busy for their Friday afternoon wedding, so we had their friends watch the ticket numbers while we headed out for a few quick portraits!
No shortage of fun back inside for the ceremony!
After the wedding we caught a ride up to the Highline for a few more portaits!
Such a cute family!
Congrats guys!! Best wishes to you both!
A quick glimpse at today’s elopement with Emma and Steven, portraits at the Highline and City Hall in Manhattan. Congrats guys!
I’ve been meaning to write this years giving back post for a few weeks, but then life got in the way. So, without further ado!
Since I started this business, using my creative powers for good has been a key aspect of my business plan. I have worked in non-profits my whole adult life, and have volunteered in my community since I was in high school. Social justice issues are a huge part of what I do, believe in and the choices I make each day. I am dedicated to giving back a portion of my profits each year to organizations and causes I believe in. If you’re curious about what organizations I’ve supported in the past, you can check them out by clicking here! In the future I would love to do more then just give a financial contribution, if you know of any organizations that are looking for photos, I’d love to hear about it!
In the past I’ve contributed to one local, one national, and one international organization, this year I still chose three places, but went with two international and one national, as I was really inspired by their work.
Charity: Water: An organization dedicated to bringing clean and safe drinking water to communities that need it. Simple as that. These guys do amazing work.
Immigration Equality: I am passionate about marriage equality and also about immigrant and refugee causes. This organization, brought to my attention by one of my super cool Vermont couples this year, encompasses both. From their website:
Immigration Equality is a national organization fighting for equality under U.S. immigration law for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and HIV-positive individuals. Founded in 1994 as the Lesbian and Gay Immigration Rights Task Force, Immigration Equality provides legal aid and advocacy for LGBT and HIV-positive immigrants and their families.
Immigration Equality is the first and only organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to achieving full equality for LGBT and HIV-positive immigrants.
“The girl effect is a movement. It’s about leveraging the unique potential of adolescent girls to end poverty for themselves, their families, their communities, their countries and the world. It’s about making girls visible and changing their social and economic dynamics by providing them with specific, powerful and relevant resources.”
I just recently found out about this fund which is focused on giving to specific organizations that promote girls in development projects around the world. Why girls? Studies have shown that promoting gender equality and empowering women and girls in development efforts provide huge results.
I also committed to giving a $25 loan to KIVA for each wedding package booked in 2012 and was able to support projects from Sierra Leone to Nicaragua.
I couldn’t have supported these organizations without my amazing clients! Thanks to each of you for such a fantastic 2012! I’m so excited to see what 2013 will bring! As always, I love hearing about new and different ways organizations are making the world a better place. If you have connections to an organization that could use photos or that I should support, don’t be shy and let me know.
