I cannot WAIT to share more images from Jill & Tom’s Cinco de Mayo wedding. There was a garden, a mansion, a margarita bar, and a photobooth – a recipe for A.M.AAAAAAA.Z.I.N.G. wedding photos. Here are just a few to hold ya over!
When I think back on Karen and Arcadio’s wedding, one thing comes to mind: killer dance moves. As in, bride and groom had some serious fun on the dance floor (and I had some serious fun photographing it!).
We started the day with photos by the Brooklyn Bridge on a clear blue sky day, then used the most fetching rooftop view as a backdrop for more portraits. The ceremony and reception took place at ReBar, a ridiculously cool venue in Dumbo that I’d describe as *visually stunning* – which, of course, excites us wedding photographers beyond words!
Yeah, I’d say it was a pretty great day :)
I don’t post black & white images too often, much less an entire shoot in black & white. But I was really digging the set I processed for Anna and Abhi and thought I would switch things up a bit on the blog here :)
Speaking of these two, they are pretty much the cutest. They came to the shoot with lots of creative ideas of their own, which made for one fun collaboration session. I always encourage this sort of input because a). It’s a surefire way of putting more of yourselves into the images we’re creating, and b). It keeps you engaged (in more ways than one!) in the session.
Here are a few of my favorite shots from our collaborative engagement shoot!:
Ohhhhh, this is a special one.
I really love shooting people I know. If you’re a good friend of mine, you can likely attest to this fact as you recall the numerous times we’ve hung out where I pulled out my camera and made you hold that pose “riiiiiight there” so I could snap a few shots. Maybe I even pulled out my tripod so I could get a shot of us together… and perhaps I told you to tilt your head down or make a funny face. And you obliged because, well, you’re awesome – which of course is why we’re friends in the first place :D
I don’t think I ever quite subjected Ben to my snap-happy habits until now, but back in the day there was many a night spent hanging out at his apartment playing Rockband, where I certainly polluted the air with my overzealous singing and less-than-stellar guitar playing. Not only did he put up with it, but he’d also make me coffee at midnight when I was dragging. That’s a good friend right there.
So I thought I’d return the favor and take some awesome engagement photos of him and Julie :)
We traipsed around Central Park to the spot where they got engaged [insert *awwwwwww* here ;)], Shake Shack where they had their post-engagement celebratory cheese fries, Joe The Art Of Coffee where they often frequent (which btw is one of my go-to coffee shops when I’m in Manhattan), and Riverside Park. They were their silly, movie-quoting selves, and I was along to document the ride:
These two were just begging to be photographed together – and I do mean that literally :P
My sister and her boyfriend came down from Boston this weekend to visit me, and we spent Sunday afternoon wandering around Brooklyn. Yup, this photo was taken in Brooklyn – Prospect Park, to be exact. I have many more images just oozing with cuteness like this one, but you’ll have to wait to see the rest!
(and no, they’re not quite engaged yet – don’t worry, Mom!)
