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
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."

Congrats to Cori & Spencer! Their venue, Studio Square, was a gorgeous raw space in Long Island City in New York City. They had an amazing view of the New York City Skyline. I always really appreciate a fun bride, groom and bridal party- they always help create the most fun stop motions and photos! The bride also had specially made Secret Groom's cake in the shape of his favorite pair of Jordans (he's a huge sneaker collector). It was really sweet!! Also Corinna was beautiful in her Jimmy Choo sparkly shoes and her gorgeous gown. All the support and love that was shown throughout the night was palpable and beautiful to witness. It was definitely a memorable night! Truly made me love being able to capture this multicultural and diverse and classic New York City Wedding as a New York City Wedding Photographer. Here are some of my favorites from the day!
