Little Bay Park Engagement Shoot – Meet Marysol and Jason!

Marysol and Jason chose their first date spot, Little Bay Park in Queens, for their engagement shoot. I love getting to shoot in new locations and this park has beautiful views of the Long Island Sound and the Throgs Neck Bridge and lots of photo worthy spots. Working with the two of them was so much fun. They brought a ton of energy and excitement to the shoot, which made it a fun day for all of us. I can’t wait to shoot their wedding next year at Stage 6 Steiner Studios!

Me and My iPhone – Random

So for a while, I didn’t have an iPhone anymore… well I did, but it was a first generation and it was pretty crappy at photos. But then I sucked it up and bought a new one, so ‘Me and My iPhone’ Mondays are back! This one is kind of (or very) random.

Speaking of random, one day this key appeared in my purse. Is it yours?

I started a small collection of Domos (or ‘Biteys’) and at the same time, wasted my laundry money.

I, yet again, resisted a pair of baby Tom’s to put on Moo…

I did not resist these Campers though.

I attended a pretty amazing reunion show with some wonderful old friends.

I celebrated the (much anticipated) premiere of Glee with a 7-11 Slurpee (slushie!)

Revisited an old favorite book of mine.

And I stumbled upon some cool art after a shoot in DUMBO!

Montauk Club Wedding – Amanda and Jeffrey are Married!

I was really excited to work with Amanda and Jeffrey on their wedding day. After their engagement shoot, I knew their wedding would be perfect and I was right! Every detail was so well executed and it was obvious how much time and thought went into the planning. Their family and friends were a total joy to be around and everyone clearly had a fabulous time celebrating the obvious love the two share.

I also got to shoot at the Montauk Club – a gorgeous venue – and work with some pretty fabulous vendors (see list below!). Congrats to Amanda and Jeffrey. Hope you’re enjoying your ‘mini-moon’.

Embarrassingly, I can’t figure out how to put links into a post from my iPad… so, these will be updated tomorrow.

Daniel NYC Wedding – Jennifer and Jason are Married!

Jennifer and Jason spent the morning getting ready at the Yale Club and were married at Daniel in Manhattan. The two had one of the most elegant, yet incredible laid back, weddings I’ve ever captured. The entire evening was sprinkled with little touches of ‘them,’ that every guest was able to recognize and relate to. I had such a wonderful day with them, sharing in their moments, but one stands out so strongly that I have to share it on the blog. Before cutting the cake, Jason and Jennifer both gave very touching toasts. During Jennifer’s, she told a story of being a little girl and practicing violin for her first recital along with the record, while her father sat with her, resetting the needle over and over again. Fast forward to five years later, when she was ten, and old enough to get an adult sized violin. It was very expensive and her uncle drove it to her family from New Jersey on Thanksgiving that year. When her parents gave her the violin they told her, “This is your wedding present.” Fast forward years later, she meets Jason and it just so happens that his favorite piece is that same song that Jennifer practiced tirelessly with the record for her very first violin recital. After sharing this touching story, Jennifer played that piece on the violin for her husband, her parents and all of the wedding guests… I have to say it was truly one of the most touching moments I’ve ever had the opportunity to capture (I will admit that even I didn’t have dry eyes as she played!). I loved spending the day with Jennifer, Jason and their family and friends. They’re a wonderful couple and I wish them all the best!
