David and Joanna are just the sweetest couple, and I adore their love story. They currently live in Australia, yep many many miles away, but Joanna is originally from New York. After David surprised Joanna with the most romantic proposal, they decided to come to New York and have an engagement session, and a surprise wedding for all the guests and family in the same week! It was a busy week, but it couldn’t have been more fun capturing these two love birds! Since they don’t get to visit often, we took full advantage of some pretty scenic city areas for their engagement session, and ended the session with a fun indian paint dust throw down at Washington Square Park! Between Grand Central Station, The NY Public Library, the West Village and Washington Square, we had a fun filled afternoon hopping around. Here are some of my favorite selects from their engagement session last fall.

Yesterday I received John and Paul’s Birthday album from Leather Craftsmen and it looks fantastic! I am so excited to give it to Julia and John, the color is beautiful! Julia chose the Heather Leather and Silver Imprinting for the names on the sides. Leather Craftsmen always does a fantastic job with all my albums, and it’s beyond exciting to see everything printed and bound.

One thing I have always enjoyed is babies, they are just absolutely precious! It warms my heart and puts a smile on my face to see new proud parents and tiny little toes and hands. How sweet is this little gal, baby Gemma! And don’t you just love her name! Gemma is one lucky little lady, and her mom did an amazing job decorating her nursery! Who doesn’t want wallpaper like that? I had so much fun capturing Gemma just a few weeks old, I had to share this adorable sweet family and her beautiful nursery decor. Here are some of my favorite selects.

It’s that time of year, it’s January and freezing outside and I am finally getting a chance to sit down and catch up on some blog posts! Sadly I am so behind and I can’t wait to share everything from the past few months. Including this fun Wedding Day celebrating Pete and Shannon! Pete and Shannon are just such a fun couple to be around. The entire wedding day they were either laughing with joy or continuously smiling from ear to ear! Needless to say they made my job so easy. And boy was I in for a surprise for the reception, I had no idea they were such fantastic dancers! That’s what I love about my job, the little things that surprise you, and getting a chance to see who breaks it down on the dance floor is always hilarious. I had such a great time photographing Pete and Shannon’s celebration and I am thrilled to share some of my favorites from their big day.

I am back from France and slowly getting back into the groove of things. Boy is it hard to start working again after a 3 week vacation! But I have so many exciting updates to share I didn’t get to share while I was away. Over the past few months I was so blessed to participate on such a fun project with Hannah Shih of Hanalulu Co. for a holiday tablescapes shoot with Good Housekeeping! What a fun idea, and it was a fantastic project to be a part of. Hannah and I were able to come up with 5 different tablescape ideas, and once we had a few concepts in mind, Hannah’s talented hands went to work and she made everything look beyond gorgeous! Seriously, she is magical! I feel truly fortunate for having such wonderful talented industry friends, Hannah is beyond amazing. Check out all the beautiful tablescapes she put together for this project. It’s so hard to choose just one favorite table design, but for now, here are some of my favorite outtakes.

And be sure to check out the feature live on Good Housekeeping as well! Thank you Hannah for all your lovely creations for this project.

A few weeks ago Adrien and I took the opportunity to go to Newport Rhode Island. We have been dying to go visit and do the Mansion Tours, and it was the perfect fall weekend for a getaway. We stayed at the Marshall Slocum Inn, and it was just beyond perfect! The food was fabulous and the inn was so cute and quaint!  And can I just mention the homes in Newport are just stunning, it’s hard to pick favorites they are all so beautiful! We did the Mansion Tours which is so interesting, we went to the beach, we ate a ton, and I we had brunch at the famous Castle Hill Inn which I highly recommend. I decided to take my new Contax 645 camera to play around a bit, and it was so nice to see all my film once it got developed! It was such a fun weekend and I had to share my new film shots I just got back.

I am so excited to see my images featured on Ruffled today. Bridget is an amazing and super talented floral designer in New York, and I had such a blast working with her to create such fun images of her arrangements for the Ruffled floral guide. Be sure to check out her company Violet and Verde.

Berto and Alyssa are such a joy to be around! I met them the day of their engagement session, and we had such a blast together! They had some great ideas for their engagement session, and they knew they wanted to be in some iconic Central Park locations, so we just hopped right in. And talk about being comfortable in front of the camera, these two are anything but camera shy! They are completely head over heels in love and too cute together! I am truly so excited for these two! Here are some of my favorites from their Central Park afternoon session.

Congratulations Berto and Alyssa!
