Well hello! I’m back to blogging, and I’ve got so many great shoots to share! Starting with Emily & George’s wedding from earlier this summer.
First, I need to say this: Emily was THE MOST organized, calm bride I’ve ever worked with. I was in awe of her wedding day demeanor.
Second: they had a Greek Orthodox ceremony, which had a lot of interesting little nuances to it. The church they married in (Sts. Constantine and Helen Church) was absolutely gorgeous!
Third: Emily had *2* bouquets – they were made of felt, by an Eastern European seller on Etsy. LOVE!
Here are some favorites from the day:
These guys came all the way from Australia to get married in New York City, and they’re spending the next MONTH traveling around the US. Now THAT’s my kind of wedding celebration :)
More to come!
Emily and George are so great. I mean, with all the love they have for their cat, how can they not be? (Sidenote: I actually got to meet the famous Theo before our shoot. He’s a cutie!)
We wandered around Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo and were gifted with some AMAZING light to work with. They were even down to hop onto a loading dock for a few shots (e.g. the last one posted below). So much fun! Here are a few of my favorite shots:
Summer in NYC is quite possibly one of my favorite things ever. Yes, ever. It’s by far my favorite time of year. Unlike a lot of people, I LOVE the heat. I will rock tank tops and flip flops well into the fall, never wanting to accept that summer is over.
BUT – I can attest to the fact that NYC can be grossly humid in the summer. Thus, it’s normal for there to be a lull in my wedding season around this time of year. I’d imagine that getting married while having to contend with such extreme weather is not exactly ideal. WAY too much sweat happening, I think!
But it’s cool – while the weddings slow down a bit, I get more time to enjoy my precious NYC summer. I found myself at the beach more than ever before – not just THE beach, but multiple beaches, all over the place. Oh, and there were a few camping trips, and some rock climbing, and boating going on, too.
More specifically, I found myself in Fire Island of NY, Cape Cod in MA, the Outer Banks of NC, and the White Mountains of NH. And when I wasn’t traveling, I was frolicking around NYC, camera in tow of course :)
I’d been looking forward to Danielle and Rob’s wedding SO MUCH this past year – and not just because it entailed a little travel on my end :) I DO always relish the chance to visit new locations, so I was pretty psyched to get to upstate Massachusetts to shoot a wedding. But mostly, I was eager for this wedding day to come because Danielle and Rob are supremely awesome people.
Let’s just say that it (and they) did not disappoint :)
