It’s been awhile since I photographed a proposal so I was thrilled to hear from Jason when we was planning a proposal to his girlfriend Cemone. Jason debated a bunch of locations, but ultimately decided on a Brooklyn proposal at Washington Street in with the Manhattan Bridge in the background.

I headed down to Brooklyn this afternoon to wait for them. They wandered down the street, asked a stranger for a photo and then he popped the question! I love photographing proposals! Cemone was surprised and excited and the tourists around us were equally thrilled. It was perfect.

After Cemone said yes we headed down to the waterfront for some skyline photos and then back up for a walk on the bridge. We made sure to stop for some ice cream, with rainbow sprinkles of course!, before I sent them on their way to celebrate.

Huge congrats to Cemone and Jason! It was lovely to meet you both and I wish you all the best!

One thing I love about weddings is seeing how people integrate their personality and creativity into their day. One obvious way this gets done is through fashion choices, and I always get especially excited when these selections involve bright colors. Enter Grace and her gorgeous red tulle wedding skirt and I was thrilled! She looked incredible and she and Olukayode were such a pleasure to hang out with for their New York City Courthouse wedding last week at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau.

While they were married on a Friday afternoon, the line actually moved fairly efficiently and it felt like we were in and out pretty quickly. Afterwards we took a few photos in the area surrounding City Hall. This area usually has quite a bit of foot traffic, but this was the first time an international bike tour group actually came through! They all shouted their congrats as they peddled by, only in NYC.

Huge congrats Grace and Olukayode! It was a pleasure to meet you both and I wish you all the best!

Kelly and Martyn flew over from Scotland for their Central Park Intimate Wedding at Wagner Cove. They have two little ones back home, but this trip was a special one just for them. We were worried it was going to rain, but the weather turned out perfectly.

Casey from Officiant NYC performed their wedding ceremony at Wagner Cove. Wagner Cove is one of my favorite spots in Central Park. A nice tiny gazebo tucked away in a private little cove on the lake down below the wandering crowds. After tying the knot with some heartfelt vows, I took them on a little tour of the park. Before heading in to their ceremony I noticed there were still some trees hanging on to the spring cherry blossoms, so I made sure we got some of the pink blooms for their photos! We also managed to hit Bow Bridge, Bethesda Terrace and finished up down the mall and with a skyline view at Cat Rock.

Kelly and Martyn were all smiles. Seriously, these two were so cute, it was clear they were so excited to be together! Congratulations Kelly and Martyn! Thanks so much for inviting me to be a part of your day!

John and Jason are two world travelers from Scotland who came to elope in New York! It was a top secret affair and I was so excited to be part of it. These two grooms were so kind and I had a great time hearing about all their travel adventures. I also always love a groom in a kilt, so having two grooms in kilts was a such treat! We started the morning by walking the Brooklyn Bridge and then headed down into Dumbo for some street art and the famous view from Washington Street. We made sure to get some skyline backdrops from the waterfront as well and then hopped in a cab for City Hall for their ceremony.

We got to the Manhattan Marriage Bureau right as they opened at 8:30am and John and Jason managed to get the third place in line for ceremonies, so we timed it perfectly! Their number was called right away and we sped through City Hall. It was great! We snapped a few quick celebratory photos outside and then I sent them on their way!

It was a wonderful day and a huge congrats to John and Jason! Thanks so much for inviting me along to document your morning, may you have a lifetime of adventures together!
