It’s not too often that you can say you spent Valentine’s Day photographing a wedding in the Empire State Building :)
Samantha and Brett had a super special wedding, followed by a super fun shoot at Grand Central Terminal. I am super stoked to share the rest of the images from their wedding day – coming soon, I promise!
Just wanted to share a few shots from Kelly and John‘s wedding album! They ordered a 10×10″ leather bound flushmount album. This thing is so gorgeous! If I were to document my life in photo albums, I would have a bookcase full of this exact kind, no joke. (And don’t think the thought hasn’t crossed my mind!)
I kicked off 2011 with a ‘top secret’ wedding between two people who shall remain nameless for now (most of their friends/family have not officially been told about it yet!). But despite their anonymity, I can vouch for their awesomeness. Anyone who suggests karaoke immediately after getting married is my kind of people :)
Also, City Hall weddings are fun in their own right. You’ve got the hustle and bustle of the big hall filled with all these wedding parties waiting to get called up to desks to sign various documents and then called in to enter the chapels. It somehow feels very New York.
2010 was an incredible year of growth and fulfillment for me and my business. I finally know what it feels like to earn a living doing what you love – and friends, it feels pretty freakin’ excellent :)
I’d like to extend a big THANK YOU to everyone I had the pleasure of working with or meeting through photography. Whether you realize it or not, you’ve helped shape me and my work, if only the teeniest bit.
With that said, below are some of my favorite images I made in 2010:
Camila contacted me last summer with an interesting request. She and her sisters had been planning a wedding for their parents, who met in Colombia when they were kids and got married 30 years ago in a courthouse. They never got to have a real wedding ceremony or celebration though, so to commemorate their 30th anniversary they would renew their vows and finally have that special wedding day on Labor Day weekend of 2010. So sweet of their daughters to do this for them!
It was a beautiful summer wedding, with the ceremony at Our Lady of Hope church in Carle Place, followed by the reception at Swan Club in Roslyn Heights. They couldn’t have asked for a better day for the wedding – it was everything that a perfect summer day should be, which makes me look forward to warmer days even more as I glance outside my window right now and see piles of snow that probably won’t disappear until April :/
