Jenn & Rob’s Wedding at Full Moon Resort

Oh boy, was this a fun and magical wedding! The wonderful couple Jenn & Rob had a super fun and love-filled wedding weekend in upstate New York at the Full Moon Resort in Big Indian, NY in June.

Out of all the weddings I’ve photographed over the years, the dance floor at this wedding was the most spectacular!

Congrats you lovebirds!

Erin + John – Texas Ranch Wedding

A few weeks ago I traveled to my home state of Texas to photograph Erin & John’s wedding weekend. Not only was it special to me to shoot a wedding in my beloved Texas, but even more so that the bride and I grew up on the same street. Erin and her younger sister  Lindsay – who I grew up playing soccer with and still play here in NYC – both live in Brooklyn as well, so many years later, we’re once again neighbors!

Many friends and family I knew growing up attended or were part of the wedding, and it was a joy to capture the weekend of festivities at Carleton Carleton Ranch in Franklin, TX,  a beautiful and serene ranch owned for generations by close family friends of Erin’s.

The weekend was nothing short of  joyous – fun, charming and Texas to the core.

Congrats, Erin and John!

Erin and Jeff: Austin, TX Wedding

In September I traveled to my home state to photograph Erin and Jeff’s wedding at the lovely Mercury Hall in Austin, TX.

It was such a beautiful evening – and special in more ways than one. Erin’s sister Janessa is married to my brother Brad, and we are both aunts to nephews Mason and Jackson.

It’s always so wonderful when you photograph an event where everyone is so joyful and warm – and especially when it’s family. I could go on and on about this wedding but I’ll let the photos tell the story.

Erin and Jeff’s wonderful friends and talented videographers also made a wedding video of the day, which I highly recommend you check out here.

Congrats to Erin and Jeff!

Michelle + Patton: Outer Banks, NC

Back in August I traveled down South to the Outer Banks in North Carolina to photograph fellow New Yorkers Michelle and Patton’s beach wedding.

North Carolina has special meaning to the couple – they both attended undergrad colleges in North Carolina, before eventually meeting in New York City, where they both attended grad school at Columbia, though in different programs.

What a trip! I got to meet so many lovely people, and being in the South felt just like being home in Texas.

The stormy weather tried to get us down, but somehow the rain held off just long enough for everyone to gather on the beach and have the ceremony.

Afterwards, the lovely and fun-filled reception was held under a tent in the backyard of a beach house the couple had rented.

Congrats to a wonderful couple, Michelle and Patton!
