I feel so blessed I get to work with so many wonderful couples throughout the year! Engagement sessions are so much fun because I get to know a little bit more about the couple! For Josh and Elizabeth, they live near the Brooklyn Botanical Garden which they love and they adore cooking together. So when they suggested maybe they should bake together for part of their session, I though it was the perfect idea. I had so much fun photographing them baking one of their favorite desserts, and then we headed on over the beautiful botanical gardens. Summer hadn’t come quite yet so there wasn’t much in bloom at that time, but we got the most amazing light to work with. Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session.
I am back from the honeymoon (woohoo) and it was spectacular! Photos from our trip are coming soon! But today I wanted to share some of my favorites from Min and Sharon’s beautiful wedding day at the Union Theological Seminary. It’s such a beautiful space! With the help of their close family and friends, they really went above and beyond to create so many special details for their big day. It takes a village sometimes, and they had the sweetest family and friends to help make this day happen for them. You might remember seeing their fun engagement session, aren’t they adorable. Cheers to the happy couple, I feel so blessed I was able to be a part of their celebration.

What do you do when you live across the world in Australia and rarely get to see your friends and family in New York? You throw a fun surprise wedding! David and Joanna reached out to me a few weeks before their big debut and said they were flying in for their “engagement party” and wanted to know if I was available for their surprise wedding. I was so honored and how cool, I have never done a surprise wedding before. I think for the most part their family and friends sensed something, but when they realized it really was their wedding day, they threw the biggest celebration. I can’t even imagine finding a wedding dress in one week, and making sure all the fun details are all in place for the big day, but this happy couple and their sweet families pulled it off in perfection. You might remember their engagement session here, yes we did this about 4 days before their wedding day. How sweet to have your wedding at your childhood home, it always makes me think of my favorite wedding movie, “Father of the Bride.” Here are some of my favorite selects from their big day!

Cheers to the happy couple in Australia!
Happy 4th of July! Here is one of my favorite quotes - “And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you – ask what you can do for your country. My fellow citizens of the world: ask not what America will do for you, but what together we can do for the freedom of man.” — John F. Kennedy
Hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend!
The Sherouse Family contacted me last Fall to do some family portraits of them around New York City before they moved back to the South. They were just the sweetest family, and Jack and Della are just the most adorable children. Jack’s favorite color is Orange so I made sure to include some orange in some of his shots. How funny! It was the kind of family session where parenting looked so fun and so easy, it truly was such a joy to be around them. I just recently saw on facebook that Della is now 2 years old, so hard to believe, and it reminded me of how much I loved photographing this sweet family around the city. Here are some of my favorites from their session.
Camille’s 1st Birthday album came in this week in the Euro Pink Leather and Silver Imprinting! It looks beautiful! For anyone interested in this particular album choice, it’s 8×8 inches, 20 pages/40 sides, and holds no more than 80 images. It’s the perfect size for a family album and or even a birthday album. I am so excited to give Camille and her family their new birthday album.
What’s not to love about summertime family portraits, and especially at the beach! Ahh, I just love the Spring Lake area, it’s truly beautiful and just so charming! When I got the opportunity to capture the Robert’s family vacation in the area, I was so thrilled. It really doesn’t get more fun than capturing cute kiddos digging in the sand and running in the water. Here are a few of my favorites from the afternoon session!
I just adore this engagement session! Rachel and Darren are just full of smiles and constantly laughing with eachother! I am so happy I got the chance to work with them last year and photograph their beautiful wedding, (more coming soon from their wedding). They are just such a fun team together! I love when couples pull out their favorite spots around New York, it’s a great way for me to learn about locations I didn’t even know existed. Now that I have tried WhiteHall restaurant, it’s one of my favorites now too! We had such a great afternoon between Whitehall, the West Village and Washington Square Park. Here are some of my favorite selects from their session!
I can’t wait to photograph James and Laura’s wedding day coming up at Hamilton Farms, it’s truly one of my favorite venues! When I met James and Laura I knew they would be so fun and so sweet to work with, and it’s been such a pleasure getting to know them. Laura and James really wanted to feature some iconic spots throughout their relationship in their engagement session, so we started out at the LES Meatball Shop, where they had their first date, and then we hopped around their neighborhood in Tribeca and even took a few shots on their building rooftop. They are just the sweetest and I am so happy for them. Here are a few of my favorite selects from their afternoon session.
