This is actually my first ‘prelude’ post on the blog. I’ll usually do ‘sneak peek’ posts and post a few images from a shoot or wedding before I’m ready to share them all, but this one is different. This is the prelude to Maeve and Nate’s wedding, which happened today on the boardwalk in Asbury Park.
Maeve sent me a copy of their invitation and info pamphlets, which impressed the socks off of me (it’s summer, who needs socks anyway?).
I arrived a day early so I could have a weekend at the shore with my best friend / roommate / assistant Lauren, and we spent the entirety of yesterday on the beach. We both concluded that Asbury Park is a happy medium between the raucous Seaside Heights shore and the lazy Ocean City shore, and very much wished we had more time to spend there. I didn’t bring my camera out until we went out later in the day, so I took a bunch of iPhone photos and then a few with my real camera, mainly to take some test shots. Many of the spots photographed below I ended up using for bride & groom shots today, so consider this a hint for what’s to come when I post more from Maeve and Nate’s wedding!
I had a blast hanging out with Cora and Matt the other night. You know why? 2 reasons:
1). they’re so chill, and
2). they love to laugh
And that’s really all I ask for in a solid hangout :D
No but really, it was awesome. They’re awesome. And I think this shot right here is pretty awesome:
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!
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!
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.
