Bear Mountain Engagement Session: Megan and Price

Bear Mountain Engagement Session: Megan and Price

Megan and Price love to hike. On days off they will hop in their car to go on adventures, exploring trails, hopping across streams, and generally being super damn adorable together. After they got engaged we decided to spend their engagement session doing just that on Bear Mountain. We had a blast as we spent the hour before sunset overlooking the Hudson River together. Love these two cuties!

Haven's Kitchen Wedding: Katie and Ann

Haven's Kitchen Wedding: Katie and Ann

Katie and Ann hosted one of the most delicious wedding receptions I’ve ever attended in the beautiful old carriage house space of Haven’s Kitchen in Chelsea, New York City. With Katie being a chef herself, she helped craft the menu to be a healthy, beautiful, spiritual celebration of the relationship she and Ann share as a way to bring together all of their loved ones on this special occasion. It was truly an incredible experience.

For Yasmin and John Brooklyn is their home, the place they met, the place they fell in love. They spend time together walking their adorable dog, Rocket, through Brooklyn’s parks (we even did their engagement session with Rocket in a couple of the parks near their apartment). So it was important to them to celebrate their marriage here, among the summer blooms of the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens.

Planning the Wedding Family/Party Formals

Planning the Wedding Family/Party Formals

Wedding Day Formals are the unsung heroes of your wedding photos gallery. Though my clients love how I capture the candid and informal moments throughout their days, the posed family and wedding party portraits are actually some of the most printed/shared/and loved images from any wedding. Formal portraits are lightly posed groupings of your loved ones all looking at the camera (and hopefully smiling and not blinking ;) ).

The rain may have delayed the ceremony a bit and made for a humid start to their day, but it couldn't take away from the oodles of love and joy that exploded from every moment of Erica and Mike's wedding day in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

Considering an Unplugged Wedding Ceremony

It's a scene I've seen play out again and again: as one partner waits at the front of the aisle, beaming with anticipation, their counterpart enters through the door on the arm of a loved one. He wipes away a tear. She lights up. Their eyes hold one another as they breathe in the moment. They look out to the friends and family who have joined them to celebrate this momentous occasion in their lives...and phone screens stare back at them.
