Back to Blogging!

Why hello, readers. Happy fall!

My little old blog has been quiet lately, this I know. It’s been a complete whirlwind these past few weeks (Eep, are we going on months?!), but I’m back and excited to be bringing you lots and lots of weddings and shoots to the blog over the next few posts!

For now… here is a tiny peek at what I’ve been up to.


Travel To I Do Feature

How exciting is this? I woke up this morning (to… snow?) to find that Vusala and Gurban’s Jamaica wedding was featured on the gorgeous blog, Travel To I Do! Definitely stop by and check it out. It’s a great blog filled with stunning real weddings and helpful tips for planning a destination wedding. Enjoy!

DUMBO Trash the Dress – Kaye & Norman

On Sunday morning, bright and early, I headed down to Dumbo to photograph Norman and Kaye. I love an ‘after wedding shoot’, be it trash the dress or just a portrait session. With the stress and anticipation of the wedding day behind you, it’s great to just take a deep breath and have a bit of fun. Fun, was definitely had! Norman and Kaye were hysterical to be around! I knew they were playful from their wedding day (clown noses during the first dance… monster cupcakes…), so I was excited to see how their shoot would turn out – enjoy!!!

This is my favorite shot!
I would like to thank Norman’s brother for letting me stand on the roof of his BMW to grab these shots!

Grand Palladium Jamaica Wedding – Trash The Dress!

I know that Dana is looking forward to seeing images from the trash the dress session, so I wanted to post these up before I get caught up in the Market Factory’s event tonight and my Central Park Wedding on Saturday. Busy, busy, busy!

I think I nearly cried tears of excitement when Dana said she wanted to do a trash the dress session. I’ve been dying to do one and in Jamaica, what could be better?

We had such amazing weather while there – harsh sun at times – but beautiful skies and not too much rain. I loved how every location we went to, Dana and Anthony’s family were there with their cameras and camcorders as well. I’m seriously considering hiring Stacey and Chris (in the paddleboat) to team up and do videography with me. They caught the ‘taking the plunge’ image flawlessly from a peddle boat, no less!

I saved processing reception photos for last, because there are so many. They’ll be up shortly following this post.

Hands down, my favorite shot of the entire trip!
After Dana and Anthony jumped, she threw her bouquet to her sister Stacey!
