Wedding Photography | NYC Civil Marriage Ceremony | Marta & Andrew

Did I ever mention how much I love civil marriage ceremonies? Don’t get me wrong, I totally appreciate all of the elaborate, detail-laden weddings that so perfectly exude the personalities of the couple in question… but deep down, I’m all about keeping it simple. All you need is love, people – didn’t the Beatles teach us anything? :P

Marta and Andrew embarked on their wedding planning adventure last summer, much like most engaged couples do. But after finding themselves completely overwhelmed and engulfed in the process, they pretty much scrapped everything and decided to do things their own way and get married by themselves. I love them for that! I was so honored to be the one person in attendance to witness their marriage vows. After their City Hall ceremony, we had a few hours to wander around Downtown Manhattan taking photos in places that held special meaning for them. One of the places we shot at was the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, since they first met on the ferry – and would you believe that a line about the weather won Marta over? (Apparently it was exceptionally stormy the day Andrew first talked to her). Love it! :D Then after the shoot, they rounded out their special day celebrating with friends and family at dinner. If that’s not a perfect day, then I don’t know what is.

And in case you couldn’t tell, I am very fond of these two. I had the best time hanging out with Marta and Andrew on their wedding day!

Wedding Photography | Bubby's Brooklyn | Sneak Peek: Alex & Mike

Alex and Mike got married last night at Bubby’s. My sole goal in photographing their wedding was to capture how freakin’ awesome they are. I’m not sure if that’s even fully possible, but I think the shots below come close to doing them justice :)

Muuuuuuch more to come!

Travel Photography | Sevilla, Spain

As you probbbbbably know, in March I went to Spain for two weeks. This is Post #3 of 5 of photos from that trip. You should totally check out the other 4 photo posts on this blog. And if you’re the reading type, I implore you to head on over to my travel blog for more details on my adventures in Spain! :)

And as always, I will travel pretty much anywhere in the name of photography. Getting married outside of NYC? Need a photographer for your destination wedding? Contact me RIGHT NOW!! :D

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

Of all the places I had planned on visiting during this trip, I was most excited about Sevilla. Everyone had hyped it up for me, to the point where maybe it was impossible for it to live up to these absurdly high standards. I couldn’t help but be a little disappointed.

That’s not to say that Sevilla was crappy or anything. Not at all! I just wasn’t quite feeling it the way I thought I would. When you travel a lot, you can’t help but compare a new place to all the previous places you’ve been to. And when I did that, I felt like there was nothing about Sevilla that really stood out and made it a place worth raving about. Well, ok, actually its cathedral is pretty stellar. I spent a few hours doing snail-paced laps around it, with my head straight up at the ceiling half of the time. SO GORGEOUS.

Other highlights from the 3 days I spent in Sevilla:

  • Flamenco! – I got to see some authentic dancing at a local bar in Triana. It was one of those *only in Spain* moments that made me really happy to be here.
  • Sun and warmth – Coming from 40-degree NYC weather to a place where it was nearly 80 degrees and sunny in March felt SO GOOD! I even got a little tan. In fact, I still have the ridiculous tan line across my feet from wearing my Toms in Spain, 2 months after the fact.
  • Tapas and wine – I had a whole lot of tapas in Sevilla. I dined solo at this one restaurant that offered a ‘5 Tapas Surprise’ platter, which I figured would be worth it since it’s usually a surprise anyway ’cause I never know what I’m ordering. And uh, I could really get used to wine at lunchtime. Or wine anytime. In Sevilla, I discovered a drink called ‘tinto de verano’, which is red wine mixed with carbonated lemonade.
  • New friends – On day 1, I met up with a friend of a friend of my sister’s (got that?) who’s from Spain, and he and his friends took me to a few bars for tapas and drinks. They ordered so many different things and I never knew what I was eating, but most of it was delicious. And it was pretty surreal to be sitting on the river overlooking the city center from across the way, swapping stories about life in NYC with ones about life in Spain. Then another night, I befriended a few people from my hostel and we did a day trip to Cordoba – but more on that with Spain post #4 :)

Senior Portraits | Boston | Shannon’s graduating from BU!

My sister graduates from Boston University next weekend!

Hooooooly crap, I don’t think any of us can believe it. I remember 4 summers ago, making the trek up to Boston with her for freshman orientation. Mostly because she was really nervous about being on her own there, but also 'cause I really wanted to wander around the city while she was busy doing orientation things :)

Since then, I have come up to Boston to visit her once every semester. I'd say we've done our fair share of sightseeing and exploring over the past 4 years, but with pretty much every visit, we always end up doing the same things:
– photoshoots in the Public Garden & Boston Common
– strolling down Newbury Street and Comm Ave
– frolicking around the waterfront
– coffee & bagels at Espresso Royale
– watching & singing along to Grease / The Sound Of Music

I would say that I'm extremely sad that this is my last time visiting her at school, but Shannon's planning on staying in Boston after graduating if she can find a job here. So with any luck, these visits will continue!

Congrats, sister! :D
