Heather & Mathew I Old Stone House I Brooklyn wedding portraits

Friday, May 24th, 2013

Yes, parts of Brooklyn can look like the countryside. This particularly idyllic scene was smack in the middle of a city playground. Heather and Mathew were married at a small, intimate ceremony at the Stone Park Cafe in Park Slope and we had this great location just across the street.

Betsy and Sibin I Engagement Portraits I Dumbo, Brooklyn

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Betsy and Sibin’s Puerto Rico wedding is coming up super fast….right after New Year’s.  I’m excited to be shooting their San Juan wedding. And looking forward to some warm weather  (just a little bit).  We managed to sneak this shoot in ahead of their January destination wedding in one of my favorite areas to shoot.  It was nice to see Jane’s Carousel up and running again after Superstorm Sandy flooded the park.

Meg and Drew, Yale Club, New York

Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

I met Meg and Drew at the Brooklyn Wedding Crashers event early in the year.  They seemed to like my low key approach to weddings and when it came time to start planning their wedding Meg contacted me.  They made it very clear that they weren’t into posed photos and “forced groupings”.  Though my emphasis is always on catching the natural, candid moments I’m very into doing great portraits as well and I think we had some lovely ones with such a beautiful setting at the Yale Club and Grand Central Station.  I’ve shared a couple of them here.  I think my favorite moment of the day was Drew serenading Meg at the reception…putting all his time with the Yale Whiffenpoofs to good use.  My second favorite was Meg’s dance with her father that they took lessons for.  I was told to make sure I had great photos of that moment.

Stacey & Adam, The Xchange, NY

Monday, August 2nd, 2010

I’ve been neglecting the blog this summer and my only excuse is that it’s been busy between the weddings, editorial work…and squeezing in as much sailing as I can.  I’m trying to make up for it now. I had a favorite photo I wanted to share of Stacey and Adam practicing their first dance at sunset on the roof of the Terminal Stores, a 19th century building in Chelsea housing the loft event space the Xchange, after our portrait session. It was a sweet, quiet time for them (except for my presence of course) just before the Katuba signing and ceremony. What a beautiful night sky.

Meghan & Oren

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

I felt I had to share the portraits from Meghan and Oren’s wedding as a separate post all on their own. The wedding photos will come later. I absolutely loved shooting at the Cloisters on this perfect Autumn day. Well, the light was perfect and the Fall foliage was at its best, but I’m sure Meghan and Oren would’ve loved for it to be a few degrees warmer. I kept telling them to pretend they were in the Caribbean. I’m not sure they were buying that when it was 50 degrees outside, but they got into the spirit of things and their feelings for each other came through loud and clear in the photographs. The kids spotting the kissing couple was a fun moment.

Location: The Cloisters and Fort Tryon Park, New York.
