In Bloom

Spring is finally here in NYC, after what I’m sure everyone can agree was a too-long winter season. I’m looking forward to sunny days at the park, perfect soccer weather and of course more photographing.

Hurricane Sandy in NYC

Views from a rooftop in Williamsburg – looking east toward the East River and Manhattan, and looking north towards Greenpoint and Queens, Monday evening, Oct. 29. Lower Manhattan went mostly dark, and 1WTC, the tallest building in the city and always brightly lit, went dark during the period these photos were taken.

Summer in the City, Brooklyn – The Wild Magazine

It’s definitely summer here in New York City, as evidenced by the recent soaring temperatures the city has experienced. I came upon a little girl and some family members cooling off in an open fire hydrant in East Williamsburg in Brooklyn yesterday. Link to the Image on The Wild Magazine’s site below.

Kara & Miguel – NYC Wedding

Last week I had the privilege of shooting the wedding of Kara & Miguel, two wonderful people who are so in love that it made my job easy; it wasn’t hard to catch moments between them.

Kara is a native New Yorker from Staten Island and Miguel is from Spain. They met in Madrid and married in an intimate ceremony at Brooklyn City Hall June 4, surrounded by family and friends. Afterward, they had a reception at Taverna Di Bacco in Manhattan on the Lower East Side.

I had the best experience shooting this wedding – everyone was so warm to me and the day was just filled with love.

Congrats Kara & Miguel!

Tara Stafford – Take 2

I’ve been super busy lately and have been neglecting editing photos, but I finally got the chance to sit down and go through the shoots I did with Tara again. I’ve previously posted photos from the shoot but I wanted to post more, plus we did some additional portraits too. Here are a few shots I liked:

Memorial Day in Cold Spring, NY

Memorial Day weekend I took a solo day trip up to Cold Spring, NY; about an hour and a half train ride from Manhattan. I’d read up on the pretty little town and it was recommended as a great day trip from the city, and I needed a little getaway.

I was only there a couple hours but I had a great time and some much needed peace and quiet.

Tara Stafford: Fort Greene Park, Brooklyn

Last Saturday I had a wonderful shoot with my good friend and former roomie Tara Stafford at Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn. Tara is so comfortable in front of the camera and threw a variety of great poses. Needless to say, we had a lot of laughs and agreed that we collaborate very well. I think her personality really comes through in the photos. Tara just got her Masters degree from Columbia University and is going back to Ghana in a few days for the summer and while I’m sad to see her go I’m so excited for her! I’m going to add more to the set, but here’s what I have so far.
