Brooklyn Engagement Photos – Meet Brian and Tom!

I’ve been holding out on blogging Brian and Tom’s engagement shoot, but I couldn’t wait any longer! First I want to mention that Brian keeps a blog called The Gay Wedding Experience and it is a great read for anyone who is planning a wedding. Brian is very detail oriented and organized (at least his blog leads me to believe that…), so perhaps it wasn’t so surprising that when I mentioned I was bringing chalk boards, Brian and Tom turned up with a backpack filled with props. Fun? Fun!

I’m excited to share these photos! (Though I realize if you are a fan on facebook then you’ve already had a peek at a lot of them.) Brian and Tom were amazing to work with and I cannot wait (truly I can’t) to capture their big day in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico this fall. Their wedding is going to be amazing (trust me), but for now check out their engagements session.

ReBar Wedding – Sam and Lee (part 2)

Yay! I’m so happy to post Sam and Lee’s reception.

It was held at reBar in Brooklyn, which made a perfect venue for a truly elegant and incredibly fun wedding. I adored Sam and Lee’s reception just as much as their ceremony. While processing their images I’ve had a smile from ear to ear, remembering events and moments and emotions… I’m excited to share these photos. Enjoy!

The toasts at Sam and Lee’s wedding were among the funniest, most heartwarming toasts I’ve ever heard. It’s obvious that everyone felt that way!

Here Comes The Brooklyn Bride (And Other Things)

It’s unusual for me to post like this, but I’ve been up to some exciting things (in addition to shooting). I wanted to share them all with you!

First, I’m putting together Sam and Lee (part two) for the blog. Their elegant reception was held at ReBar in Dumbo. Here is a sneak peak with a promise of a full post coming soon…

I also spent a few days in Altoon, Pa at a workshop with the amazingly talented Thom Rouse. The workshop was hosted by the wonderful Tammy and Tamar of London Wolfe Photography in their ginormous studio/coffee shop (Yep, that’s right! These talented ladies opened a coffee shop in their studio space, ingeniously marrying my two favorite things – coffee and photography!). I learned so much while I was there and I interacted with some awesome people. It was a great time and exciting to be back in Brooklyn with lots of new photoshop skills and photography ideas! Here is a shot (captured by Tammy) of everyone working…

Next, I’m getting ready for my first Bridal Show (gulp)! I’m really excited about it especially because it’s in Brooklyn and featuring a lot of great local vendors! Check it out:

You can purchase tickets here: Buy Tickets Online! If you go, please stop by my booth and say hello!

And last, but certainly not least, I’ve been accepted as a photographer for The Littlest Heroes Project! If you’ve never heard of it, check it out. It’s an amazing organization.

So for now, that’s it. But I hope to post again real soon.

DUMBO Family Shoot – Ed, Amy & Atomu

I had a wonderful morning roaming around DUMBO. It was (unseasonably) warm and kids were all decked out for Halloween! I saw some pretty adorable costumes. Before I head to New Jersey to celebrate the holiday myself, I wanted to post a few shots from my shoot this morning. I met up with Ed, Amy and Atomu in DUMBO. We had a great time together! Though shy at first, Atomu quickly warmed up and, by the end of the shoot, was using both the Holga and 5DMKII like a pro!

I’ll post more images soon, but these are a few of my favorites!

DUMBO Family Portraits – Marci, Sean & Mercedes

On Monday morning, I headed back down to Dumbo to photograph Marci, Sean and Mercedes. The weather was amazing – a perfect mix of sun and clouds and a gorgeous blue sky! The three of them are an adorable and it was such a pleasure to spend time with them. Here are a few of my favorite shots from our session. 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!

DUMBO Portrait Shoot – Charlie

I’ve been working tons this weekend (…sigh), but before I head off to Buttermilk to have a Sunday night drink and try to breathe before the week starts up, I wanted to post a few images from Friday’s photo shoot.

It was so wonderful to have an outdoor shoot on such a beautiful day – a nice change of pace. What made it even more wonderful was my subject, Charlie. Charlie was a joy to be around and a pleasure to photograph. She has so much energy and personality and the camera loves her (whether she agrees with that statement or not, it’s the truth!).

Here are a few favorites. When I get a chance to play a bit, I’ll post a few more.

Enjoy and thanks for a great shoot, Charlie!
