Happy Holidays! I will be away through December 28th in France, so please be patient with all inquiries and emails.

Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you need anything at all or have any questions. May the holiday season keep you warm, fuzzy, and full of joy throughout the New Year!

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!
Paul and Mary are just truly one of the sweetest couples out there! They are funny, witty, friendly, fun foodies, travelers, and most importantly, they are extremely adorable together and head over heels in love. You might remember their Engagement Session from earlier this year, we had such a blast! I knew their wedding would be just as fun, and it truly was! I can’t imagine more creative and fun ways to share the day with your family and friends. After Paul and Mary did their first look in the West Village where they live, they had all their friends meet them at Prodigy Coffee to join them in their favorite coffee shots! How cute is that! After some yummy coffee shots we headed on over to Big Gay Ice Cream where everyone got a ice cream cone, seriously, I was so in aww at this idea. Their ceremony followed at St. Francis Xavier, and last but not least, an amazing reception full of love and laughter at Del Posto. Here are some of my favorite selects from Paul and Mary’s big day. I will be forever grateful I had the opportunity to spend this special day with such a lovely couple.
Cheers to Paul and Mary!
And thank you to Colby Blount for joining me that day.
How adorable is The Sprouse Family! Matt and Allison moved up here last Fall from Tennessee and I love any chance I get to see this sweet family. So when they asked me to do a very New York City session with them, I was beyond excited! Family sessions are always a blast, and especially when you get to hop around the Flatiron District with such cute little girls. Don’t you just love their outfits from Matilda Jane! These dresses make me want to have kids right now just so I can shop for them. They are precious! Here are a few of my favorite selects from this fun afternoon. Thanks again Matt and Allison for having me capture your beautiful family in the city!
There are certain times of the year when Wedding Photographers have down time and it’s either pretty amazing or pretty boring because we are so used to a heavier workload. Sometimes we like to take the time to photograph anything inspirational and creative that fancies us. This was one of those times that I was so blessed to be there at the right moment to witness this amazing memory. There was a month earlier this year when wedding season hadn’t quite kicked in yet and I was itching to shoot something wintery so I emailed a few of my girlfriends asking for a couple to participate in a fun, stylized session. Abby and Rob thought it sounded great so they were immediately on board. Our schedules got a little crazy and before we knew it we couldn’t schedule the session until March 30th. In the meantime, Rob had picked out an engagement ring and waited for the perfect moment to surprise Abby, when he called me the week before our shoot to give me the heads up that he was indeed going to ask Abby to marry him at the shoot. I was beyond thrilled and so excited, I seriously had such a hard time keeping this a secret but I did and I was jumping for joy the day March 30th rolled around. It was a beautiful day and the most perfect surprise proposal. After Abby received her new bling and said yes, we proceeded on with a fun engagement session for the newly engaged couple. It was such a fun inspirational engagement session and the perfect surprise! Here are some of my favorites from their session, and be sure to check out the Style Me Pretty feature as well.
Cheers to Abby and Rob and happy wedding planning!
Jaclyn Jordan is not only a super talented lady, but she is a complete sweetheart as well! I feel truly blessed to know her. Having went to SCAD in Georgia, and having lived a few years in the South, we totally hit it off. So when it came time to photograph her latest bridal accessories I wanted to be a part of this shoot instantly. I am still in aww of all the veils, hairpieces and belts! Aren’t they all incredible! Just absolutely stunning! Check out all of my favorites from Jaclyn’s fun lookbook shoot.
Be sure to check out Jaclyn’s amazing creations online as well.
Graham and Meredith are just the sweetest couple! I had so much fun photographing their Brooklyn Heights Engagement Session, and when it came time for their big day, I had an absolute blast! Graham’s family owns a country home in Amenia New York, so while they were searching for the perfect spot for their wedding day, they soon realized why not celebrate in the most beautiful location where Graham spent a lot of time during his childhood. It was truly gorgeous! Meredith’s amazing girlfriends and sisters all wore custom white dresses, while Meredith herself wore a stunning Lela Rose dress! She was breathtaking! All of the guests met at The Smithfield Church for the lovely ceremony, which happens to be one street over from the Winfrey home, and then everyone headed on over to the private reception in the Winfrey’s backyard for a yummy family style dinner and fantastic dance music to follow. It was such a fun wedding, and I am still in aww at how beautiful everything looked! Here are some of my favorites from their wedding day celebration!
Congratulations Graham and Meredith!
