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!

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!

Kate + Rahul: NYC Wedding

A couple weeks ago I photographed an amazing couple’s wedding, Kate and Rahul, in NYC.

Kate and Raul are the loveliest couple whom I met through mutual friends here in NY.

The ceremony was at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament on 71st and Broadway on the Upper West Side. I loved that I got to photograph the couple on a walk through Central Park from their hotel at Columbus Circle to the west side. I even jumped in the cab with them for a short cab ride the rest of the way to the church. A city wedding all the way!

After the ceremony we rode the subway down to Le Bernadin in Midtown where they had their reception with family.

It was such a beautiful, intimate evening and I came away feeling so happy to get to be in the presence of such a loving couple and their equally loving families.

Congrats Kate & Rahul!

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!
