Judith & Irving had an incredible NYC wedding in the Summer full of beautiful details, nods to their Chinese heritage and also to their hometown of #Queens, NYC (represent!) They had their ceremony and reception at the Queens Museum; a sleek, modern space chock full of artwork and history of queens. Guests were even able to enjoy a walk through a vast panorama that features the the entire New York City! It was such a jam packed day, but the company and the energy made it a remarkable and memorable wedding! Here are some of my favorites from the day!Read More
Jill and Justin are brooklynites, marathon runners, and knicks fans. They chose to have their wedding at 501 union because it was a gorgeous space that was able to highlight their neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY! And what an amazing highlight it WAS! Both their families came from all over to support and witness such a beautiful and heartfelt union between these two and I was luckily able to be a part of it all! I truly love being a new york city wedding photographer! Here are just a few of my favorite shots from the day!
Linda & Daniel had their wedding in the heart of New York City. With a beautiful traditional Christian ceremony in a traditional Church of the Heavenly Rest on the upper west side and their reception in Soho at the The Dominick Hotel; no amount of fog or rain could dampen anyone's spirits! It ended up being a gorgeous view and perfect lighting for their portraits- and really highlighted parts of New York City throughout the day. We wandered around the West Village and got some amazing street shots in New York City. We had to add a few umbrellas to the shots- but it was actually a really awesome touch! I love being a New York City wedding photographer !
From Linda's (The Bride) perspective:
"Neither Daniel nor I grew up in New York but had both moved here for work. During our time in New York, we both fell head over heels in love with the city. Especially after we got engaged in the Hamptons, we knew we wanted to have our wedding in New York City, to commemorate and celebrate our time here. From the second we saw the stunning panoramic views of the downtown Manhattan skyline from the top floor of Trump Soho, every other venue paled in comparison. As most of our guests would be coming from out of town, we thought this was the perfect way to showcase for them the city. We chose the Church of the Heavenly Rest for our ceremony because we were enraptured with the majesty and beauty of its architecture, and it most definitely fulfilled the dreams I’d had since I was a little girl of a fairy tale wedding.
For the decorations and floral designs, we wanted to keep everything clean, classic, and elegant. Especially with the stunning architecture of our church and the unique downtown views of Trump Soho, we didn’t want to have too much and detract from their intrinsic appeal.
From my walk down the aisle, to being introduced to all our family and friends as husband and wife for the first time, to dancing the night away with the Manhattan skyline lit up behind us, every detail and every single person we had the opportunity to work with was so perfect and far exceeded anything we had ever imagined."

Nicole & Matthew had a sweet, intimate outdoor ceremony in the quaint little neighborhood of Vinegar Hill. Hidden away, they said their vows to each other and celebrated the occasion with delicious dinner, heartfelt toasts and bangin CAKE at Vinegar Hill House Restaurant !! Both amazing people with impeccable taste, they had chosen a beautiful restaurant and spruced it up with bits and pieces of their personalities. I loved being a part of this multicultural union and celebrating with their families! They even had a traditional Chinese tea ceremony and tried to include everyone on this wonderful tradition! It’s so great to be a new york city wedding photographer!
