Shakespeare in the Park: Romeo and Juliet in NYC

Back in May, I photographed the newly-formed theater collective Shakespeare Downtown during an outdoor performance of their first play, the classic Romeo & Juliet, at Castle Clinton, in Lower Manhattan.

I’ve never photographed an outdoor play before, and it came with different challenges than the average play indoors with professional lighting, but it was a great experience and a wonderful play. Shakespeare Downtown’s performances are free and open to the public, check out their website here to see when their next production will take place!

Nico + Michael

On a bitterly cold January day, I had the pleasure of photographing Nico and Michael’s ceremony at the City Clerk’s office in downtown Manhattan. Nico and Michael are two of the kindest people I have ever met. They are down-to-earth and fun, and always laughing. They have the cutest cat named Baxter that stole the show in his bow tie at breakfast before the ceremony.

The lovely couple and their friends and families could not have been warmer as I captured their ceremony and reception over the weekend of Feb. 18. It’s such a wonderful thing to work with good people. Photographing a wedding is like taking a crash course in getting to know a family, and these two families were amazing.

The following Sunday, Nico and Michael had their reception at the rooftop bar and lounge at the Empire Hotel, right across from the beautiful Lincoln Center, where we stopped by to take some photos before the party started.

Congratulations to Nico and Michael!

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.
