See You in 2015!

What a wonderful year it’s been! Not to be cheeseball, but my heart is so full. It’s been just fantastic.

I’m taking the rest of the year off of the blog to celebrate Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and the really big one at my house: New Years!

I’m also packing out those last few albums for my wonderful 2014 clients, and I’ll be back in this space first thing January to start rocking the new year.

Merry, happy everything. I’ll see you next year.

One Shot: The Dog is Smaller Than the Bouquet | Hoboken Wedding Photo

After their Central Park wedding, Oriana and Peter headed back home to Hoboken for portraits before a celebratory dinner. Here they paused on the pier with the NYC Skyline laid out behind them, Empire State Building and all.

Their five pound dog Jack, nestled into her arms, sporting a tiny bow tie knit sweater. He is actually smaller than her bouquet!

These two. Oh my goodness my heart.

The day after marriage equality became legal in New York State, Stephen and Dino got married at Judson Memorial Church in Manhattan. Three years later we met so I could take celebratory photos of them in Washington Square Park. We walked to their church from there (Stephen preaches there sometimes) and took some photos on the steps.

Thanks for meeting up with me, gentleman!

One Shot: Wedding at The Park in Chelsea NYC | NYC Intimate Wedding Photographer

the park chelsea NYC wedding

Moments before their ceremony at The Park in Chelsea, Catherine and Chen pause on the steps for a photo. I loved this entire wedding and cannot wait to show you the whole thing. The Park is magical, whimsical, and – especially since it’s built in an old taxi stand – truly an “only in New York” kind of place.

I was so excited when New Haven-based photographer Kelly Prizel invited me to second shoot this wedding with her over the summer. Thanks, Kelly!

The wedding took place at the Pavilion on Crystal Lake in Middletown, CT, which is a fantastic venue with a gorgeous view. We lucked out by discovering a field nearby just as the sun set, and Kelly and I literally “squee!”ed with glee! (I am not a “squee!” kind of gal usually, but this sunset… I mean… you guys… it deserved a squee.) The brides’ friends and family danced all night!

Congratulations M & S! It was wonderful to help photograph your special day.
