Katarina and Mario are from Croatia and plan on returning there this fall for a big wedding. (Oh how much I would LOVE to go, Croatia is near the top of my many lists of places I need to go.) However, in the meantime, they got legally hitched in New York City and asked if I’d be willing to take a few portraits in Central Park before they headed down to City Hall. Of course!
I had a wonderful morning with these two and their friends wandering through the park. Aren’t they a gorgeous couple? Best wishes to you both!
Katarina’s only request… A photo of her and Mario with their friends jumping! Done and done. Congrats guys!
Lori Ann and Michael were married in a small, private ceremony in the West Village officiated by the always wonderful Judie Guild. After their ceremony, we had a wonderful time wandering through the neighborhood and then headed over to the river front for a few photos by the water. Lori Ann then brought us up to her amazing office were we finished up portraits with an amazing sunset view!
After their wedding, these two are heading out on a new adventure together with a big move to Malaysia!
Congratulations and best wishes to you both!
Lynda and Andy travelled all the way from Hawaii to elope in New York City! These two came to me via Offbeat Bride, and I couldn’t have been happier to work with both of them. Lynda and Andy are two of the kindest people you’ll ever meet. And, they’ve known each other since the 4th grade! How cute is that?
We met up in Brooklyn Bridge Park early one Friday morning hoping for skyline views. Mother nature had other plans, huge clouds of fog. While it wasn’t what I originally had in mind, I think it actually turned out pretty magical. I had so much fun wandering around the park and into DUMBO with these two. After loads of photos, we grabbed a cab up to City Hall for their ceremony, and then hopped up to the Highline to finish off the afternoon.
Lynda and Andy, congratulations and best wishes! I had such a wonderful time, thanks so much for everything!
Kirsten and Kim are my second set of brides from Texas! While they currently live in the south, these two ladies used to live in NYC and knew this was where they wanted to exchange wedding vows. Despite the chilly air, we had time before the rain for a quick walk to the NY Public Library and back, and then scurried inside to finish portraits in Grand Central. I had a great time showing them around and watching their reaction to trying out the whispering gallery.
While the original thought was to get hitched in Central Park, the snow/sleet/rain/cold changed up the plan and forced things indoors. Kirsten and Kim never let the changes in plan ruin their day, and as you can see were just so incredibly happy to be together! Kirsten had actually called ahead to the Michael Jordan restaurant and requested the corner table overlooking the main area of Grand Central. So when we arrived, we just scooted the table out of the way, and presto, beautiful impromtu ceremony venue! Extra special thanks to the restaurant staff for being so accommodating!
Their ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt, officiated by a dear friend of theirs. They took a moment to share private vows with each other, and then their other friend shared a song to conclude. Thank you so much Kirsten and Kim, for having me be a part of your day! A wonderful time was had by all!
Cheers and Congratulations to Kirsten and Kim!
I had a lovely morning in Central Park with Katarina and Mario. More to come!
Emilio and Jesse were married back in November and I had wonderful morning with them both! We met bright and early on the Upper West Side to wander a bit among the beautiful brownstones and then headed into Central Park.
These guys were troppers as the weather turned from slightly sprinkling to heavy rain pretty quickly. We just made it to the Bethesda Terrace before the rain came down! However, we got some lovely photos under the terrace and with umbrellas and I think things worked out just fine.
From Central Park we grabbed a ride to City Hall for the ceremony and finished off the morning there. These two and along with a friend of Emilio and Jesse’s sister were a joy to work with and I wish them nothing but the best! Congratulations to you both!
2013. What a year. This was my first full calendar year as a full-time photographer, after quitting my day job in fall of 2012, and I have to say, it was pretty amazing. This year was spent half in Vermont and half in New York and a good portion going back and forth. It was a little crazy, but totally worth it. In 2013 I shot 20 large weddings, 28 elopements, 10 engagement sessions, and a handful of other family sessions and editorial work.
I have the BEST clients in the universe. So I just wanted to say thank you, a million times over, to each and every one of you. You all made this year the best yet, and I couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you for your trust, and for making each day I go to work so incredibly awesome.
Cheers to another wonderful year!
Andrea and Chris came over the UK for their elopement in Central Park this past October. I had SUCH a fabulous time with these two! They were married with their closest friends and family present at Wagner’s Cove by the lovely Judie Guild. Afterwards we wandered all over the park and a bit in the Upper West Side for some awesome photos.
My favorite part of this session? When we met the day before Chris confessed he hates getting his photo taken, and Andrea told me she had maybe one good photo of him in the nearly 10 years they’d been together. By the end of our time together, Chris was all about the photos, even making suggestions and requests for where we could take portraits! If that isn’t a successful day, I don’t know what is.
Andrea and Chris, thanks a million for having me, I had a blast! Congratulations and best wishes to you both!
I had such a wonderful evening with Latrice and Maurita in Central Park! I met up with these two ladies at their hotel for some getting ready photos, and then we hopped in a limo for Shakespeare’s Garden. I love this area of the park for ceremonies, and they even got a special permit for music as a surprise for Maurita.
Their beautiful ceremony was officiated by Judie Guild, and even led to some happy tears from their young son. After the vows, they swayed to a first dance, and then we were off for photos around Belvedere Castle and Turtle Pond. These two were so full of joy and love, my job doesn’t get much better then this. Thank you ladies so very much for having me, it was such a pleasure. Congratulations and best wishes to you both!
I am always honored when couples ask me to be a part of their wedding celebration. Today, however, I felt especially honored to be a part of Stephen and Jim’s day.
More to come, a heartfelt congratulations to you both!
