Gwen and Jamie eloped at City Hall in Manhattan with just a dear friend in tow, then met up with me in Dumbo for a fun, “Oh my goodness, we just got married!” portrait session in Brooklyn. They were giddy!

Lou had planned his Central Park proposal weeks in advance and managed to keep the lid on the surprise! We took their engagement photos all around the Mall and Bethesda Fountain.
Jerry and Lisa had an intimate City Hall wedding with family and friends, and then we went to the Southstreet Seaport for some wedding portraits. I’ve never shot there before, and was excited to take photos among the quirky mix of modern sky scrapers and old-timey buildings.
Steven and Tara are expecting girl twins, so we did a maternity photo shoot in Central Park with lots of pink!
Dave, Jax and I took to the streets of SoHo for a very New York City engagement shoot. Per my advice, Jax wore flats to get to our SoHo set, and changed on the sidewalk. We visited the Pearl River Mart for some fun masked photos, and took a few shots in the paper lantern department.
I love Kimberly’s pink shirt! Kimberly and Erik opted for a Brooklyn Bridge engagement photo shoot and then we headed to Brooklyn Bridge Park and the streets of DUMBO for more shots.
At Denice and Jone’s City Hall elopement, their daughter proudly served as flower girl. While our group was crossing the street to the park across from City Hall, she fussed about holding anyone’s hand. I offered my own, figuring I was new and more interesting than a family member, and she accepted, tucking her teeny hand in mine cheerfully. It was the sweetest part of my day.
Jones got a tiny bit emotional during the vows, and after, I sensed the newlyweds needed alone time post-ceremony before the outdoor photos. I sent them to the far end of City Hall and ushered the rest of the family outside. The couple joined us a few minutes later, and Denise thanked me. Sometimes it’s not all about just being the photographer.
Photobooths are un-offically an offering of my business for now, and if you’d like one at your event, get in touch.
Here, I convinced the brides (in the first photos, among others) to go with a fun pink background instead of the slate grey one they were initially envisioning, and it worked SO WELL for their wedding. Everyone had an amazing time taking photos, and hell, even *I* got kissed at this wedding.
Not gonna lie: I kind of have a crush on both of them.
Mark and Grant eloped to New York City from the South after several years together. I adored how happy they were to be getting married.
John asked me at one point, “Are my family members taking too many photos?” and I smiled, because I often get asked that, and the answer is always no. “Family paparazzi” is just fine with me, although I always encourage everyone put their cameras down and be 100% present during the actual wedding ceremony. But during the portraits before and after? Go for it. And yes, I will totally snap a photo with your iPhone for you to post on Facebook. “Just got married!” is an important status update!
